A perfect fit for the discerning scientist or engineer: ADC offers its first catalog packed with tools for a new century
04/12/2005 - 11/30/-0001

Lansing, NY, April 12, 2005 -- You will not find corsets or wrenches in this catalog, as this 

unique book offers tools for the 21st century. 


For the first time since Advanced Design Consulting, Inc. (ADC) began in 1994, the company has produced a comprehensive 82-page, full-color product catalog for physicists, chemists, and biologists, as well as mechanical and aerospace engineers. The theme for this year's catalog is "Challenges Overcome." 


The catalog features standard products such as high precision slits with all electronics onboard, precision crossed roller jacks, crossed roller slides, standard precision crossed optical tables, and precision rotation stages.  It also has Eulerian and Kappa goniometers, plus goniometers with nanoradian accuracy. Other standard products include Beryllium windows and ion chambers. 


ADC provides exceptional engineering and scientific solutions to many companies and 

institutions. "Our company is dedicated to developing, fabricating, installing and servicing 

systems to meet our customers' needs," says Alex Deyhim, the company's president. 


That dedication is highlighted inside the catalog, as the company's custom products are 

displayed.  These include spectrometers for inelastic x-ray measurements, a high-resolution 

backscattering spectrometer, beamstops and beamshutters, beam pipes, flight tubes and flare chambers, and an x-ray vacuum oven.  The company even displays the large precision turntable and the radio telescope tertiary noise shield that were used in the Gregorian reflector system for the upgrade at the Arecibo Observatory, Arecibo, Puerto Rico. 


The precision roller jacks can travel in 25, 50, 90 or 100 millimeters. The precision optical tables are modular and highly flexible-providing X, Y, and Z axis motion, arranged in three-point kinematic fashion. This is how the table is able to support optics and instrumentation for scientific research.  ADC has seven different models of rotation stages, which are designed for industrial settings.  Made from high-strength aluminum alloy, these stages can be used for measurement systems, vision control, automation, robotics, or synchrotron experiments. 

For scientists who use x-ray diffraction or x-ray tomography, ADC offers two- , four-and six-circle goniometers to fit within a laboratory budget. 


And as if top-quality products were not enough, the catalog features a section on scientific 

references, as well as useful mathematical equations and constants. The equations page 

provides general x-ray formulas, and Bragg's law and the correction for refraction in multilayer mirrors.  There is also a handy citation for the Rayleigh cross section and scattering for a multi- electron atom.
