In an effort to raise funds for its charitable educational goals, the Society of Vacuum Coaters Foundation (SVCF) is offering the popular “Vacuum Wizard” video presentation for download from its website.
The 2-1/2-hour video presents the fundamentals of vacuum and vacuum coating technology using non-technical jargon and demonstrations. It can be used as a training tool in the corporate world or in the classroom to anyone wanting a basic understanding of vacuum technology.
The SVCF is requesting donations for use of the video, at several suggested donation levels. To donate and download the video, visit svcfoundation.org.
