Service Plans

Guarantee that your valuable investment will continue to operate at optimal levels of performance

Protect your equipment with a Gatan service contract. You can prevent failures before they occur and receive priority attention when emergency service becomes necessary. Gatan service contracts provide preventive maintenance, parts and labor coverage, assistance on software maintenance upgrades, and other benefits to ensure that your Gatan product is operating properly. Depending on the type of Gatan product you own, services are provided either at your location or at the Gatan factory.

Gatan offers three service contract plans:

  1. Preventive maintenance plan (PMP)
  2. Extended warranty (EW) that includes parts and labor
  3. Extended warranty that covers parts only

All plans are structured to meet your specific requirements to control operation and maintenance costs, deliver factory-level performance for the life of your product, manage unscheduled repair costs, and guarantee priority response to your unscheduled field and factory service requests.

Order before your warranty expires

Save costs by planning for your service contract to take effect immediately after the original warranty expires.

If your Gatan product is past warranty, schedule a billable service visit or a remote online inspection to ensure it qualifies for a service contract.
