Custom Vacuum Systems and Custom UHV Systems

Custom research vacuum systems & UHV systems for a wide variety of applications.

Custom Vacuum Systems & UHV Systems: Design & Fabrication

We have fabricated and delivered hundreds of custom Vacuum systems and UHV systems wordwide and for a diverse range of applications including;

  • space simulation systems
  • molecular beam cluster deposition
  • vacuum evaporation
  • outgassing measurement systems
  • pulsed laser deposition
  • PVD magnetron sputtering
  • research MBE systems
  • spin coaters

We can design and manufacture a vacuum system or UHV system to your exact requirements, whether a relatively simple single chamber, manually operated vacuum rig, or the most sophisticated, fully automated multi-chamber UHV system equipped with a range of manipulators, heating and cooling capabilities and integrated deposition and analysis instruments and techniques.
