Having trouble finding a replacement for your GFC-1000?


  • Recently, Veeco / Ion Tech discontinued selling the gas flow controller for their Spector series of Ion Deposition / Ion Sputtering systems.
  • They are still repairing them for $5000.  It is not known how long these services will be available.
  • Some companies offer flow controller replacements, but none of them talk to the system software running on the Spector.

In a Kickstarter-style hardware development initiative, Edge Scientific is in the process of designing and manufacturing a drop-in replacement of the GFC-1000.  It is estimated that the first build will be ready in early 2018.

Why spend $1.5M on a new system when you can keep your existing Spector running for a few more years?
