Acoustic noise. Magnetic fields. Vibration. No location is completely free of these environmental factors, so understanding how such disturbances affect your site can save you from unexpected costs and headaches.
Using their vast expertise of the sources of environmental interference, VEC provides site surveys, analysis and evaluation, remediation strategies and real-time monitoring to give you thorough and detailed data from your space so that you can make informed decisions.
VEC is especially knowledgeable in the stringent requirements of the semiconductor, microscopy, and analytical instrument industries – where any deviation from the optimal operating environment can have serious consequences.
We work with architects, construction contractors, and engineers who are building research centers, laboratories, and manufacturing facilities. Getting us in early to evaluate building sites and provide design consulting assures that best practices for controlling environmental interference can be addressed during architectural design and building construction.
We work with laboratory managers and directors to identify sources of problems that degrade the performance of an electron microscope or other analytical instruments. And we deliver the most comprehensive data detailing space performance so that you know what you will need to do to prepare your room when you want to add new tools. VEC focuses on the data, not the products, so you are assured of unbiased, accurate site evaluations and recommendations.
VEC offers real-time monitoring, with data being delivered directly to your computer or smartphone so that you can quickly resolve issues of vibration, acoustic noise, or field interference. Monitoring is also a great way to get insights into time periods or events that may cause increases in disturbance in your space or at your facility.
VEC is proud to be a distributor for Spicer Consulting, the manufacturer of the microscopy and semiconductor industries’ preferred solutions for magnetic field cancellation. We cover the USA, Canada, Mexico, and South America.
Not all facilities require magnetic field cancellation as part of the remediation strategy, but for those that do, our collaboration with Spicer provides a distinct advantage when these systems are needed.
