Long Business Description:

Micromeritics introduces a new brand, Particulate Systems, to market a variety of innovative OEM particle characterization products.
Micromeritics Instrument Corporation recently announced it will begin marketing an auxiliary selection of OEM laboratory instruments to complement its line of particle characterization products. These products will be sold under the umbrella brand, Particulate Systems, in order to unite them under a single identity.
Micromeritics is dedicated to advancing the science of particle characterization by identifying and soliciting new innovative instruments for the Particulate Systems brand. Small companies and independent innovators with novel instrument designs will benefit from Micromeritic’s’ extensive sales and support network while end users will be offered new and exciting technology that otherwise may have remained obscured by more prominent or better funded manufacturers. In business for over 45 years with U.S. corporate headquarters in Norcross (Atlanta), Georgia, Micromeritics has direct offices in England, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, and China. In addition, the companyss customers are served by specially trained local representatives covering over 65 countries who both sell and service Micromeritic’s instruments. All instruments under the Particulate Systems brand will be supported in Micromeritic’s customary world-class manner.
Micromeritics is excited about the addition of its Particulate Systems brand and is looking forward to meeting customer demands by adding a variety of products to its already extensive line of particle characterization instruments.

Long Business Description:

Materials Science, Inc. was established in 1989 and incorporated in 1992. The company specializes in magnetron sputter deposition. We manufacture and distribute products from multiple locations throughout the United States.

Materials Science, Inc. endeavors to understand each customer’s needs and respond appropriately. Our team of creative scientists, engineers, software developers, technicians, coating experts and support staff each possesses decades of experience, both in designing and building critical technology components and similarly with systems used in high volume industrial production. They have implemented systems for magnetic and optical storage media, semiconductor production, compound semiconductor devices, precision optics, decorative coatings, functional and wear purposes, flexible substrates, MEMS devices, flat panel displays, telecommunication devices, fiber optics and other applications.

To shorten product development cycles, we design and model most of our products by CAD before prototype units are built. We often use 3D solids modeling and FEA software to perform magnetic, thermal, fluid and stress analysis. These tools allow us to rapidly design, prototype, test and help our customer put into production new magnetron sputtering sources designed for specific needs.

Materials Science, Inc. has several prototyping test systems. Products are characterized and optimized as appropriate. During prototype testing, we also monitor and control vacuum levels, argon and reactive gas flow, current, voltage and power levels, incoming/outgoing water temperature, flow and pressure and other information germane to a device and/or application.

Our laboratory also allows real world checks on how easy the company’s products are to service, maintain, assemble and integrate into a system.

Address: P.O. Box 256, 7500 AG ENSCHEDE, The Netherlands
Long Business Description:

Twente Solid State Technology (TSST) was founded in 1998 as a spin-off company from the University of Twente, and offers high quality thin film solutions. As a result TSST products can now be found around the world.

TSST wants to contribute to the progress in the worldwide scientific community of advanced thin film materials by providing state-of-the-art deposition equipment, with focus on pulsed laser deposition, and developing and sharing relevant expertise

The company is specialised in design and production of customised thin film deposition equipment, specifically Pulsed Laser Deposition equipment for advanced studies. An example is the use of Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction (RHEED) under high-pressure conditions, which gives real-time information about the surface morphology during depositions.

Every system can be controlled through a central console, giving full control of all parameters involved. This allows the rapid replication of settings and depositions, which results a higher reliability in less time.

Apart from the equipment, the company also produces ceramic thin films, and offers services for research in the field of ceramic thin films, such as the surface treatment of ceramic substrates. TSST is able to provide these services due to the strong cooperation with the MESA+ institute at the University of Twente.

Long Business Description:

Setaram was formed during the middle of the last century because a steel company in France could not find commercially available instrumentation that was powerful enough to deliver thermal analysis data that was required for its materials research effort. That simple step more than 50 years ago is as key to our principles and product lines today as it was then – to provide a technical solution, a characterization or even a single data point that other companies simply cannot deliver to the materials scientist.
If you look at our current product line it is full of instruments that can provide unique levels of precision, or examine materials under near impossible conditions so that you, the scientist can be inspired. This includes the PCTPro that allows for the precise determination of hydrogen storage in materials that will form the next generation of fuel cells, microcalorimetry that has inspired unique nutritional developments or high temperature TGA for travel into space.
Even more than its product line Setaram is the people who make up this company. We have assembled the best engineers and the brightest scientists in an effort to deliver not just the best instrumentation – but the best service, and the best support anywhere.
When you make the decision to invest in a Setaram Instrument you can feel confident that everybody within the team stands behind this system and that we are fully committed to ensuring you have the best solution for your problem. This means we have a dedicated application laboratory that can help you develop the best methodology and train you to become the most skilled user you can be.
We dedicate ourselves to inspire the Imagination of the Materials Scientists, whether they are in food, in ceramics, in energy or even on the International Space Station.
