AJA International, Inc. was founded in Scituate, Massachusetts, USA in 1989 by William Hale, MBA, BS Physics. The company was established as a supplier of innovative thin film, vacuum and microwave products.

Prior to founding AJA International, Mr. Hale developed numerous sputter systems, ECR systems, and worked extensively in RIE, PECVD, surface analysis and vacuum technology areas ranging from chemical/pharmaceutical to vacuum packaging to UHV/MBE. This experience along with a long experience in international business gave AJA International, Inc. a solid running start.

Within 2 years the company developed the popular ATC Series Sputtering Systems – the first commercial, con-focal, sputter tools with rotating substrates and in-situ tilting magnetron sputter heads. This revolutionary development yielded extremely uniform and controllable depositions of single layers, multi-layers and alloys and has become the most popular R&D sputtering system configuration on the market.

AJA sells its products directly or in cooperation with local agents. All AJA systems are installed by AJA factory personnel whenever possible and factory acceptance and training are highly recommended and welcomed. With over 900 systems and over 7,500 magnetrons shipped worldwide, AJA International, Inc. continues to discover innovative design solutions which are often copied but never equaled as the company truly remains THE CUTTING EDGE IN THIN FILM TECHNOLOGY.

NanoMaterials Ltd. (Apnano) was established in 2002 and after its acquisition in 2013 became a fully owned subsidiary of the leading American company Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc. (NIS). NanoMaterials specializes in development and production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on exclusively patented platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
These tungsten disulfide (WS2) based nanomaterials opened up new possibilities for developing extreme performance lubricants, coatings and polymer composites. The composition and morphology of these materials create a unique mechanism of friction-induced tribofilm release. The exfoliated nanoparticles attach to working-surfaces, fill in wear crevices and coat working surfaces with a continuous super-lubrication layer. This “surface reconditioning” effect was instrumental in the successful development of NIS’s Corp, award winning NanoLub® family of Extreme Pressure (EP) Anti-Wear (AW) and Anti-Friction (AF) lubrication additives. The Company’s R&D department is involved in extensive research and testing for additional WS2 based applications in the field of lubricants, coatings and polymer composites for such industries as defense, mining and metalworking.

NanoMaterials’ inorganic nano-particles can be incorporated into polymer matrices to increase their strength and fracture toughness, and enhance their tribological and thermal properties.
NanoMaterials’ multi-layered WS? nano-particles tackle one of the key problems of carbon nano-tubes, which is high rates of defects and agglomeration that translate to problematic dispersability.

Eastern Applied Research, Lockport NY, USA
6614 Lincoln Ave., Lockport, NY 14094, USA

In 1991, Eastern Applied Research began as a regional service provider for x-ray fluorescence instruments. Technical associates offered on-site certification, consultation, and repair services with a focus on the East Coast of the United States. Those associates realized that most clients were looking for a single source for XRF Technology service and support. So, Eastern Applied added an in-house standards laboratory for standard re-certification and manufacturing of new XRF standards. They also began offering XRF analyzers for their clients testing needs.

In time, through the organizations dedication to offering efficient response times and competitive pricing (an overall dedication to customer satisfaction) the client list grew and demanded additional technical staff be added to support that demand. Expanding the on-site service personal to include representatives to cover Central and Western United States was the next step in the evolution of this complete service provider. Eastern Applied Research has continued to grow over the years and now provides service and support throughout North America – covering Canada and Mexico with bi-lingual service personal as needed.

Eastern Applied’s core technical staff has a complete working knowledge of a wide range of XRF analyzer models and the field staff receives extensive training on each model to insure a satisfactory experience for the client. Sales of XRF analyzers has expanded from just reconditioned systems (used XRF) to include new analyzers from a leader in XRF technology – Hitachi High-Tech. XRF analyzers from Hitachi High-Tech are known for providing the highest reliability and excellent precision for a large number of application interests.

Applications include:
Thickness Measurements
RoHS Testing
Analytical Laboratory
Process Control
Alloy Analysis
Geological Testing
