Wide range of vacuum parts and consumables. I have used many of the 2″ KJLC TORUS Magnetron Sputtering Guns over the last 10 years. They are very reliable compared to the ones I bought from competitors.

Low cost, large inventory, and fast responses after inquiry! Lesker Germany is very friendly and always tries their best to help us meet our project deadline. The price of the goods are cheaper and more importantly, the large stock really help in finding exactly what you need urgently.

Through the purchase of seven KJL deposition tools, over the course of almost 20 years, the overall experience has been terrific. The systems have performed very well and have proved to be valuable tools for thin film deposition and a big factor in completing a number of large projects making detectors for high energy physics and photon science applications. One big consideration for our research at Brookhaven National Labs is having reliable, high quality equipment with strong customer support. In my experience KJL has provided all of that and more.

I’ve worked with Lesker in several capacities over the last 30 years. I look to Lesker as my “go to guys” for PVD equipment, service and supplies and ultimately to enable the level of support our users require. They are always just a phone call away.

I buy from KJLC because of service, price, and people. Saying you have a great price and delivery is one thing, making good on it is what counts. Add in the great people at KJLC and it is even better. We have four Kurt J. Lesker Company built systems at our company, all doing highly important work for the National Labs.

Very satisfied with my KJLC PVD system. With reasonable costs, the equipment is extremely reliable and precise. Especially, user friendly operation interface and programming makes processes easier and well controlled. Importantly, KJLC provides a full range of products including deposition materials, for all our needs. The inquiries can be quickly sorted by very friendly KJLC experts.

The Mini-SPECTROS has proven to be the ideal tool for rapidly proving out the feasibility of vapour deposited perovskite solar cells, the combination of organic and metal sources offers great versatility for investigating new materials with a broad range of deposition temperatures. The prompt and friendly service offered by Lesker has also helped us to get the most out of this tool. – Learn more about Henry Snaith’s Perovskite Research.
