Desktop Sputter Coater | DSR1

VacTechniche DSR1 has been developed to exceed the requirements for SEM/TEM sample preparation. The compact and easy to use sputter coater, has the option of using existing pumps or supplied with a pump. For external pumping the on board computer controls the pump or pumping rig.

The Desk Magnetron Sputter Coater (DSR1) is a highly productive tool known for delivering consistent and highly repeatable results within a fully automated system. Its ergonomic design and small footprint make the DSR1 SEM coating system easy to use.

The DSR1-170 is set up as a sputter coater specifically designed for preparing samples for scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

The DSR1, equipped with a 2-inch magnetron cathode and an 80W switching DC power supply, is versatile for various research and thin-film applications. Additionally, it can be outfitted with a water-cooled cathode, making it suitable for extended deposition processes. This model accommodates substrates of up to 4 inches in size.

Touch Screen Control

The DSR1 desk sputter coater features a 7-inch color touch screen and fully automated control software. It displays vacuum and coating data digitally or as curves. The history of the last 300 coatings is stored and can be transferred to a PC via a USB port.

Sample Holders

The DSR1 offers various sample stage configurations to suit different user needs. The standard sample stage is rotatable with adjustable height and angle, making it easy to change. Additionally, there's the option for a rotary planetary sample stage, which is ideal for achieving uniform coating on porous specimens.

Newly Designed Sample Holder

A new 4-inch rotating sample holder is designed for the system to increase the deposition area and the number of coating stubs in a run (Customizable for max. 50×1 mm stubs).
