File Transfer - AMEFEX or FTP

CAMECA customers and collaborators can send large files (up to 2GB) to/from AMETEK email addresses using the AMFEX web client that operates similar to other cloud based file sharing programs.  Please go to and register.


For regular and very large file sharing, use the new CAMECA WI-Madison File Transfer Protocol (FTP). Your user name is your CAMECA account number (5 digit number) found on any invoice.
Effective March 2016 the old server ,OLDwi-mad-ftp.ametek.comOLD, will not work.

Open: in your favorite ftp client application. NOTE - web browsers will not work well with password management. 
Although CAMECA does not endorse any ftp product, many customers have used Filezilla successfully (free ftp client NOTE: Starting with Filezilla V3, the default mode is Transport Layer Security (TLS) for quick-connect and saved sites in the site manager - and this new default mode fails to connect. To access CAMECA data, you may need to change the connection in the site manager to "Only use plain FTP".  FTP may not work with a VPN active.

Your username and password are now managed by each account - Note, they are CAPS sensitive and will expire every 6 months. Forgot your password? REQUEST a temporary one. User names and passwords are provided to CAMECA customers and close collaborators only. Passwords are automatically reset every 6 months If you need to get a new password, use the "Request" link above.


In Filezilla, when you need to change your password - go to the quickconnect bar
Host: Username: your username - Password: oldpassword newpassword (you must include the space between the old password and the new password).
Other ftp software will provide a typical password change interface.
