Glass-to-Metal Seals & Glass-Working
Torr Scientific has extended its vacuum window processing capabilities to include production of glass to metal seals. The facility will also allow further development of the wide range of vacuum optical components offered by the company. A new induction heater is now in operation and glass-working lathes, ovens and test equipment are also housed in the glass department. The operators have many years’ experience in the production of glass products for vacuum and electron optical devices. The recently formed department will enable the company to develop glass vacuum windows, feedthroughs and X-ray tube encapsulations in addition to the current vacuum brazing techniques applied for production of the vacuum optic range of products. All Kodial glass viewports are now produced in-house and enquiries for custom requirements for glass-working and glass to metal seals are welcomed.
