Vacuum, Thin Film Deposition & UHV Surface Analysis:
Vacuum components, instruments and complete custom made solutions for general vacuum applications, vacuum based atomic & molecular physics and chemistry, thin film growth and UHV surface analysis.

Residual Gas Analysers:
Residual gas analysers. The lowest cost and highest specification residual gas analysers currently on the market. The range includes web-enabled residual gas analysers, analytical double and triple filter quadrupole mass spectrometers, and both high pressure and differentially pumped process residual gas analysers. Standard mass range options are 100, 200 and 300amu. Analytical range options include high resolution 1-6amu for e.g. He/D2 discrimination.

Residual Gas Analysers for Vacuum Processing:
Process Residual Gas Analysers are innovative in-situ process monitoring instruments that are fully integrated and field proven application-specific packages. The range includes the latest smart head technology delivering real-time on line analysis for vacuum diagnostics and process control in etching, thin film deposition (PVD and CVD) and plasma modification processes.

Plasma Cleaning & Plasma Treatment:
Plasma treatment equipment is used to modify the surfaces of materials such as polymers, textiles, ceramics and metals. The modification takes just minutes, is environmentally friendly and does not effect the bulk material properties in any other way. Different treatments are available to produce surface properties that are either ultra-clean, highly activated (to increase bonding properties), completely liquid-repellant or totally wettable.

Benchtop Gas Analysis:
Our range of benchtop gas analysis systems comprise purpose built mass spectrometers with application specific inlets and interfaces for on-line monitoring and analysis of gases, gas mixtures, vapours and dissolved gases in liquids. They are ideal for R&D, process monitoring and control in catalysis studies, thermogravimetric analyis (TGA coupling), membrane studies, fermentation process monitoring and thermal analysis etc.
Gas compositions can be measured over a wide dynamic range (ppt to 100%) with a wide range of sampling inlets to suit every application requirement. Versions are available with single inlet, 4, 8 or 16 way inlet.

We can manufacture to a wide range of pressure vessel standards, including PD5500, ASME, AD Merkblatt, CODAP, Stoomwezen, EN 13445, etc.
Metalcraft have been manufacturing pressure vessels on our UK site for over 100 years and during this time have developed a wealth of knowledge and experience on the manufacturing techniques necessary to effectively and efficiently produce pressure vessels to the highest standards required by the sectors we serve. In addition to the pressure vessels we manufacture, we also manufacture vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels using a number of similar techniques required for pressure vessel manufacture. The vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels we produce are generally fabricated and machined in order to achieve the required vacuum leak tightness.
Metalcraft have the necessary fabrication and machining capabilities in house to ensure that the vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels we manufacture comply with customers requirements and can demonstrate those requirements by vacuum testing the vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels in house. We have manufactured vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels in a wide range of materials, from carbon steels, stainless steels and aluminium.In excess of 40,000 pressure vessels, vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels have been manufactured by Metalcraft to date and we believe that Metalcraft are the premier manufacturer of medium to large pressure vessels, vacuum vessels and cryogenic vessels in Europe, if not the world.

TSST Twente Solid State Technology, 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.
