Welcome to Scanwel

Scanwel was established in 1974, to provide a rapid response service to the rapidly expanding market in high vacuum fittings and fabrications.
Although the product range has continuously expanded in nearly 40 years of trading, the overriding philosophy within the company is still Customer First.

Today we manufacture and distribute components and systems to end users and o.e.m.s in academia, government laboratories and industry.
Our products find application in the production and development of advanced materials and processes in a number of high technology fields, including nanotechnology, microelectronics, storage media, energy production and bio-medical and basic materials research of metals, oxides, polymers, coatings, etc.
We provide our customers with unique tools to solve challenging scientific and analysis problems and accelerate the development of new materials, products and processes.

We specialise in producing custom fabrication and chambers, for clean and UHV applications.

Our custom systems are exactly that, conceived and designed with your full involvement using our experience and the latest CAD packages. The end result is a product that meets your requirements.
