Advanced Research Systems, Inc. was started in 1986 by Ravi Bains to provide cryogenic solutions for low temperature research. ARS has evolved as a world class manufacturer of closed cycle cryocoolers and laboratory cryogenic systems. ARS is the only major supplier of laboratory cryostats that also manufactures 4 K closed cycle cryocoolers for its use.
Manufacturing our own cryocoolers allows us to seamlessly adapt our cryostats for challenging applications where the cryocooler must be customized for a specific application. ARS has sales and service capabilities worldwide, with an international sales force that is well trained to support our customers and provide guidance in the selection of cryogenic equipment that suits customers’ needs at a fair price.
We recognize that the quality of both our product and our customer relationships determines our future success in this competitive world. To facilitate this, we continue to invest in improving and expanding our capabilities and in developing new products for the future. We feel that the close working relationships we have forged with our customers over the years are testimony to our success.

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.

Asahi Spectra Co. (ASC) was founded in 1970 in Tokyo, Japan by 3 engineers. ASC has been developing a vacuum deposition technology such as ion assisted deposition (IAD) and ion beam sputtering (IBS) , which achieve hard coating, excellent durability for environment (humidity, low or high temperature, thermal shock or vacuum) and stability of spectral performance. By now our optical filters have contributed in various markets such as astronomy, semiconductor, biotechnology, education and so on.
Nowadays, customer requirements are becoming more complicated as optical innovation advances, and most requirements cannot be satisfied by just optical filter technology. So we have been trying to expand our field to optical instruments based on our 40 years accumulated optical know-how as you can see how professional our optical instruments are.
Our integrated manufacturing process by both filter and instrument specialists is the most competitive advantage against “other only-optical-filter makers”.
Asahi Spectra USA Inc. was established in January, 2005 in California in order to distribute the Asahi Spectra brand in USA and all over the world. Major Customers in the US include:

Cambridge Vacuum Engineering’s roots begin in the late 1950’s in Cambridge, England with the founding of Torvac, a company specialising in the manufacture of Electron Beam Welders and Vacuum Furnaces.
A break-a-way group formed Wentgate Engineers in the mid 1960’s and for many years the two companies traded in competition.
Torvac purchased the Hawker Siddley Dynamics “Dynaweld” technology, which added 150kV welders to their range.
Through the process of acquisition, both Wentgate and Torvac became owned by Thermal Scientific and in the late 1980’s, under their new TI Group ownership, the companies moved to their present site, rationalised themselves and began trading under the name, Cambridge Vacuum Engineering. Since October 2001 the company has been owned by Aquasium Technology Ltd.
2007 has seen strengthening of the CVE brand with WDI in the States now being known as CVE Inc.
CVE today manufactures Electron Beam Welders and Vacuum Furnaces . They also provide spares and service support for the 50 year history of Torvac, Wentgate and Dynaweld products.
CVE operates a Quality Management System which complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008.
