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.
COOKE VACUUM designs and manufactures a wide range of standard and custom high and ultrahigh vacuum systems intended for research and production. With five decades of experience, and thousands of units in the field, COOKE VACUUM has come to symbolize economy and versatility,
Cooke Vacuum Products was established in the late 1950’s during an exciting period of experimentation in vacuum technology, especially thin film coating and materials research. From the beginning, Cooke had to pioneer new applications and new tools for the emerging semiconductor and optical industries, and for the related research laboratories.
Over the next decades, Cooke continued to support R&D by developing pumping systems, resistance evaporation, electron-beam, sputtering, and plasma sources, often in close collaboration with customers. Vacuum environmental chambers were developed for the space industry, encapsulation and bake systems for early flat panel displays. New, and highly specialized equipment was made for the quartz crystal industry, as well as for production of printing foil, then holographic foil. We were there to make the first OLED systems, and the first glove-box processors.
Because of the emphasis on custom solutions, the company has remained relatively small, and is well-known for its ability to “engineer on demand” more than for volume production.
Thin Film Deposition: Thermal Resistance; Electron Beam; Sputter; PLD; OLED and Glove Box Systems.
Etch/Ash/Surface Treatment: Plasma Etch; Reactive Ion Etch; Surface Activation and Modification.
Test and Specials: Environmental Test; Space Simulators; Vacuum Ovens: Laser Die Attach.
Dynamic Systems manufactures the Gleeble® line of thermal-mechanical physical simulators. Samples of material are heated and mechanically worked while performance parameters are measured and analyzed, providing a cost effective way to physically simulate high temperature processes and applications at a far lower cost than full scale tests.
Process simulation capabilities include: Hot Rolling, Continuous Casting, Recrystallization, Weld HAZ Cycles, Butt Welding, Diffusion Bonding, Mushy Zone Processing, Forging, Extrusion, Continuous Strip Annealing, Heat Treating, Quenching and more.
More information on Gleeble Systems can be found on the company website: www.Gleeble.com.
FLIR thermal imaging systems use state-of-the-art infrared imaging technology that detects infrared radiation – or heat. Based on detected temperature differences, thermal imaging cameras can create a crisp image. Advanced algorithms also make it possible to read correct temperature values from this image. Thermal imaging technology has become increasingly popular and more and more universities are using thermal imaging technology for the most demanding, complex and the most diverse applications.

When Linseis began manufacturing recorders and thermal analysis instruments, almost 50 years ago, they had a specific goal in mind: To build a more versatile, performance oriented product, utilizing the latest relevant technologies and offer it at a fair and reasonable price. This philosophy has carried on through the years. It is, in fact the guiding force throughout the development cycle of every product which bears the Linseis name.

The MELLEN Company was founded in 1966 by one man who believed in creating high temperature furnaces to maximize work time and minimize uncontrolled temperature variations. Mr. Mellen, an avid scientist, combined his years of experience with constant research to develop top of the line products. Through his diligence he created the patented MELLEN EDG furnace, patented thermal distortion free sight glass and many others.
Today, MELLEN combines years of research with ongoing research, computer aided design and stringent quality control. MELLEN strives to provide its customers with well researched and extensively engineered products.
MELLEN tests and develops new products using the MELLEN LAB. Inside the lab, MELLEN tests for element life, longevity and maximum use. MELLEN experiments with components, atmosphere and materials. Our goal is to maximize furnace life and quality.
At MELLEN, each furnace is carefully inspected to meet our high quality standards. In addition to MELLEN’s standard line of furnaces, MELLEN creates custom furnace designed to your specifications.
ALL of MELLEN’s products are made in the U.S.A. and are available to ship around the world!

For forty years, Summers Optical has manufactured and distributed optical cements and adhesives for military, commercial, and aerospace usage. Formerly known as Summers Laboratories, we have been the innovators of unique adhesive systems for the bonding of glass to metal, glass to glass, metal to plastic, and plastic to metal as well as 2-Component and 1-component (UV curing) cements for the bonding of like and unlike substrates.
All of our cements and adhesives have been formulated and are manufactured keeping in mind many of the typical bonding problems that are prevalent in the optical industry. Our line of cements offer solutions to broad band transmission, high mechanical shock and chemical resistance, differences in thermal expansion, laser, fiber optic, and filter applications, as well as bonding a wide variety of substrate materials.
We have always been committed to our customers and this commitment is matched only by our pride in quality and workmanship. You are invited to browse through our home page to learn more about our cements and our cementing accessories and what we have to offer the optical industry.
