Moorfield MiniLab 026 (Compact Floor Standing Vacuum Evaporator)

To better serve you, we would like to discuss your specific requirement, Please Contact Us for a quote.

MSE Supplies offers MiniLab 026 (Compact Floor Standing Vacuum Evaporator) from Moorfield. MiniLab 026 tools include a turbomolecular pump positioned on an ISO100 port at the rear of the vacuum chamber. The base of the vacuum chamber sits, as a well, into the supporting frame. The chamber lid can be either a stainless-steel top-hat style lid (i.e., for a ‘clam-shell’ type chamber arrangement), or a bell-jar — similar to the Edwards E306. Systems can be equipped with a wide variety of deposition techniques.

Techniques include thermal and low-temperature evaporation sources (for metals and organics), and magnetron sputtering sources (for metals and inorganics). Deposition sources are typically mounted on the chamber baseplate. Substrate stages are supported from the roof and can accommodate a range of substrate sizes up to 6” diameter. Substrate heating, rotation and Z-shift are available. The MiniLab 026 is also glovebox compatible and is the only system in the MiniLab range that can be easily retrofitted to an existing glovebox. It is suitable for metal, dielectric and organics deposition via evaporation and sputtering techniques.
