  • production equipment;
  • microscopes, related equipment and detectors;
  • decapsulation equipment;
  • metal powders (pure or alloys);
  • photodetectors with high quantum efficiency – more than 80% in the wave range from 300 nm to 1700 nm;
  • software for the development, manufacture or use of systems, equipment and components;
  • software for creating digital copies of additive products or determining the reliability of additive products;
  • Technologies for the development, manufacture or use of systems, equipment, components or software for all of the above.
