The Astoba / Meyer Burger UW1 is a remarkable peice of Swiss design and engineering but has long since ceased being manufactured. If you are looking for accessories and attachments only used items can be bought when they become available.

I do have a few items listed below for sale or exchange.


If you have UW1 items you wish to sell or exchange and would like them listed on this site please email with details. Hopefully this will allow UW1 owners to network with one another and keep these machines in use.
