Highlights: The French gem Silmach watches over the integrity of aircraft. The SME has designed microsensors that can identify the first signs of wear on critical parts. This innovation required nearly twenty years of research and the filing of 200 patents. A pioneer in silicon micromechanics, the SME combined the historic know-how of Besançon, the cradle of French high-precision watchmaking, with the high-tech world of semiconductors and clean rooms.


The SME has designed microsensors that can identify the first signs of wear on critical parts.


A microsensor that does not consume energy to monitor the wear of a structure during its life cycle 24 hours a day, in order to prevent failure and facilitate maintenance.

This is the technology developed by the French deeptech Silmach, a spin-off from the CNRS in Besançon, created in 2003. This innovation required nearly twenty years of research and the filing of 200 patents.

We design technical physical products – micromotors for mobile and/or connected systems and microsensors to monitor the health of structures – breaking away from what already exists.

Silmach is the only company in the world to have succeeded in developing such disruptive components
