The extra functionality of the automatic features allows fine-grain coating on a range of samples with a choice of target materials.

The automatic purge and leak functions with the optional MTM-20 High Resolution Thickness Controller provide constant thickness for improved conductive coating outcomes. Cool and fine-grain sputtering has been obtained with a highly efficient low-voltage DC magnetron head. The rapid change target method enables a range of metals to be utilized.

Main features

  • The 108 Auto Sputter Coater is available in a completely automated or manually operated option. The specifications consist of an automatic vent and argon purge control.
  • The digital sputter current control is independent of the argon gas pressure in the sputtering chamber to obtain constant sputtering rates and ideal specimen coverage.
  • In automatic mode, it is possible to regulate the coater in two ways. The digital timer could provide repeatable coatings, or the MTM-20 High Resolution Thickness Controller (optional) could stop the sputtering process at the preferred thickness. Instead, the MTM-10 High Resolution Thickness Monitor (optional) might also be utilized for manual termination.
  • The 108 Auto Sputter Coater could be factory fitted or retrofitted at any time with the MTM-20 High Resolution Thickness Controller (optional).
  • The novel magnetron design provides wide-angle coverage at close sample distances, even for sensitive samples.
  • The effective DC magnetron functions on a low voltage for “ultra-cool” sputtering to prevent effects on sample surface.
  • Quick target change enables a range of materials utilized: Au, Au/Pd, Pt/Pd Pt, (Au fitted as standard).
  • Separate electronic valves available for purge and vent, leak, coupled with an accurate needle valve, guarantee simple and rapid operation.
  • Also, the optional Rotary-Tilting (RT) Stage comes for the 108 Auto Sputter Coater.
