If you have an instrument that is out of warranty or a vintage scope, we can repair it. Many manufactures don’t support “out of production models” and often don’t stock parts any more. SVMS has an extensive inventory of new and used parts and equipment. We also have a vast network of parts dealers we can count on. In some cases we have fabricated replacement parts in our on site machine shop.
SVMS has experience working on many different models and brands*. SVMS works on everything from simple stereo microscopes to multi-axis motorized automated measuring machines with a variety of video equipment. We also are collectors of vintage microscopes and have experience in restoration and repair.
SVMS’s technicians can work on your instruments on site or you can ship the tool to us (we can provide information on proper shipping techniques). Our technicians have traveled nationally and internationally as far as China, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Canada, Costa Rica, and Mexico. We at SVMS work in a variety of environments; we work in semiconductor clean rooms, bio- research facilities, and government nuclear facilities. We will work with class 2 and class 3 Biohazards.
