Used VARIAN / INTEVAC Equipment for sale
Varian, now known as Intevac, is a leading technology company specializing in advanced vacuum process equipment. With innovative solutions and expertise in thin film deposition technology, Intevac caters to industries such as semiconductor, data storage, aerospace, and defense. Founded in 1953 under the name Varian Associates, the company originally focused on manufacturing medical devices like klystron tubes and linear accelerators for scientific and medical research. Over the years, Varian Associates expanded its product portfolio and entered the vacuum coating equipment market. Their sputtering systems became highly regarded for their precision and reliability. Sputtering is a widely used process in thin film deposition, where material is uniformly deposited onto a target surface by bombarding it with ions. Varian also specialized in molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), a process used for fabricating high-quality semiconductor structures on an atomic level. This technology enables the precise deposition of layers of atoms, leading to better material quality and enhanced device performance, particularly in optoelectronic and power applications. In 1994, Varian merged its vacuum systems division with Optical Coating Laboratory Inc. to form what would become Intevac. This allowed the company to expand its expertise and product offerings further. Nowadays, Intevac's product lineup includes not only sputtering systems and molecular beam epitaxy equipment but also advanced imaging solutions for night vision applications. With its rich history, focus on innovation, and commitment to delivering state-of-the-art solutions, Intevac continues to play a crucial role in advancing technology across various industries, reinforcing its position as a global leader in vacuum process equipment.
