Ametek Inc.

Feb 2012
Electronic instruments maker Ametek Inc. of Berwyn, Pa., has acquired privately held Technical Manufacturing Corp. (TMC) of Peabody, Mass., a manufacturer of vibration isolation systems and optical test benches. Financial terms were not disclosed. TMC’s products are used to isolate sensitive instruments such as scanning electron microscopes and ultraprecision machine tools for the microelectronics, life sciences, photonics and ultraprecision manufacturing industries. TMC will become part of Ametek Electronic Instrument Group’s Ultra Precision Technologies Div., which develops measurement instruments, machine tools and manufacturing systems for the semiconductor, photovoltaic, nanotechnology, military and ophthalmic lens markets.

The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
