When Performance Matters
When applications have demanding requirements, customers look to Ferrotec. At Ferrotec, we specialize in delivering mission-critical performance, whether it’s sealing semiconductor vacuum process chambers, driving high-temperature photovoltaic furnaces, protecting sensitive components in military equipment, or providing an enabling solution for your next technology innovation.
World Class Engineering
Our most advanced sealing solutions all have their roots in Ferrotec’s reliable, proven designs. So when customers look to next generation technology with unique rotation, pressure, and material challenges, Ferrotec engineering is the resource they trust. From size, shape, multi-axis motion and advanced analysis to sophisticated components that integrate motors, gas and cooling union features—even sensors and electronic controls—Ferrotec’s engineering portfolio spans a spectrum of challenges. Leveraging Ferrotec’s application engineering expertise and our broader understanding of the tools and subsystems that rely on our seals, we are the go-to resource for next generation system development.
Producing high-quality precision components for OEMs means more than simply matching tight tolerances—it’s also about manufacturability, repeatability, and consistency. We own our global manufacturing facilities and we manage our processes. Our primary manufacturing operations in Asia and Europe are registered ISO 9001 and we also mandate strict inter-organizational quality processes. From producing our own ferrofluid to maintaining exacting standards in machining and assembly, a Ferrotec label is much more than just etched steel.
