The optics industry heavily relies on the latest technology for day-to-day operations. Companies within the industry are responsible for creating a wide range of products and services, including fiber optic components for telecommunications, optical design and engineering, precision measuring and position equipment, and optical coatings/thin films. Whether you run a giant aerospace company, a research firm, or a small business, optics-related companies are always on the prowl for a system that is able to handle high-tech operations. Here’s a look at the Discovery System, a high volume sputtering platform ideal for businesses in the optics industry.
The Discovery is a multi-cathode sputter deposition platform that offers a flexible, turnkey solution for confocal and perpendicular sputtering geometries. It’s great for R & D, batch production, and sputtering. When it comes to cathode configurations, the Discovery can handle up to eight cathodes with triaxis adjustment of radius, distance, and angular presentation. What’s more, each cathode can be set for a different deposition process and target matter. If you’re concerned about cross contamination of the source material, don’t be. The Discovery offers independent electro-pneumatic source shutters and chimney assemblies that prevent cross contamination.
If you’re searching for a sputtering platform with a powerful control system, the Discover is for you. You can upgrade the system to include consistent controls, standard software, source code, and various network capabilities. It also handles substrate as large as 30 inches in diameter and as heavy as 50 pounds. If you need anything added to the system, the manufacturer can help you create a system that is tailored for your operations.
