Optix rental scheme launched

During the current production disruption in many sectors, Gencoa is making a large number of the Optix vacuum process analysers available to customers for a monthly rental to help with process development, troubleshooting and optimisation. Optix analyses process gases, vacuum plasmas, and provides outputs for process feedback control and Industry 4.0. Its unique optical spectrum based sensing and different remote plasma generation options, allow any type of vacuum process to be characterised including ALD and CVD.

The information provided by Optix is valuable and the robust nature of the device means that customers can apply it to any type of situation without a risk to the health of the device. That is why we are happy to make these units widely available for 1 month minimum periods. After you have completed the studies, we can pass the unit onto another user, or you can purchase the unit and we'll deduct the rental costs.

If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact your local representative or [email protected].
