Customer Care

Every customer has different needs. Some are primarily concerned with cost control; some require constant availability while others may want to guarantee cutting edge results throughout the lifetime of their equipment. We have the expertise, experience, and knowledge to accommodate all these requirements, and more.

Individual customers are assigned a dedicated engineer with access to direct phone and e-mail contacts. Because of this highly personal service, the engineer will be familiar with a customer’s requirements and equipment. Of course, a backup engineer is also available if needed.

We are able to offer a range of support options, depending on customer requirements. This can include telephone support, remote access via the internet, or onsite visits where required. Our advanced service and support systems log all communications, documenting any activity from initial ordering to planned service or routine maintenance visits.

In addition we are developing tools for condition based maintenance or predictive maintenance. By using IoT (Internet of Things) based sensors and connections we monitor the instruments key operating parameters to trigger maintenance or replacement before the system stops or performance will deteriorate.

Remote Support

Since we started supporting customer in the Nordic area several decades ago we started to use various forms of remote support. Of course the past years with the pandemic has increased this need even more. We can now offer a range of options to support remotely.

Using the "Lens" app which you can access through the QR code to the left we can see through the camera of your mobile phone. We have seen that the live image makes it so much easier to understand what is going on.

It is easy for you to connect and we can document what we do as well as show you on the phone screen "which buttons to press".

The remote assistance app "Lens" comes included in all our support contracts.

We can also offer the option of remote desktop connection to your SEM/TEM or microanalysis system. As long as you can connect your instrument with the internet we can easily connect with our Remote desktop software.

If you are in an IT environment where this is not possible or you are running an outdated version of Windows we can offer a dedicated secure line using our advanced gateway solution. Ask us for more information on this.

Condition based maintenance

We are working on solutions using IoT technology to let the instruments continuously provide us with status information on critical performance parameters.

We will let you know when we have a solution available.

Support Contracts

We want to provide support solutions and contracts for all customers. You should find a suitable contract, if not - please let us know.

Last year we asked As requirements vary between customers and consider a range of factors, from up-time to running costs. This is vital if the equipment’s maximum availability and performance are to be maintained.

Support plans are generally based on a service contract that includes a specific set of benefits. These benefits could include preventive maintenance, frequent PC backups, rapid response times, cost control, or regular training. More specialized requirements can also be included, for instance, the loan of backup units where required, or specific support for third party products currently in use.

Spare parts are housed locally, regionally, and globally. We also offer a global spare part support service, ensuring that spare parts can be sourced from any region globally should they not be available in local stocks.
