1200-PO Thin-film coating machine for optics with intelligent shields

Most sophisticated mass-production coater in the market

Engineered for 24 hour production demands and with process times as little as 20 minutes (door-to-door), the 1200-PO truly sets the benchmark in productivity and cost of ownership. These can be even more increased as the machine is fully compatible with Satisloh’s MES-360.

In order to meet different precision optics coatings requirements this box coater can be equipped with a dome, planetary systems, or other options on request, giving great process flexibility.

Benefits and features

  • An intelligent, movable shield system for the Meissner trap optimizes pumping speed and protects against surface contamination
  • A new Meissner trap with a 15% larger surface area allows for faster pump times to the start of the deposition process – and therefore higher throughput. It also increases process repeatability
  • New, user-friendly HMI software and touchscreen make 1200-PO operation easy
  • Single or dual EBG´s with IAD and thermal resistive sources
  • Standard dual crystal head with shutter, or optional six crystal indexer
  • Extremely robust: reinforced vacuum chamber with welded tubes improves chamber thermal stabilization for maximum fatigue and corrosion resistance
  • New simplified e-beam emitter with 50% fewer parts for easier maintenance and increased reliability
  • New portable degassing system for coating operations utilizing low temperature coating processes
  • Green: diffusion pump heater modulation and insulated jacket cover reduce energy consumption by up to 25%
  • Up to 10% higher productivity
  • up to 25% lower energy consumption
  • 10% reduced maintenance time
  • next level of robust design for maximum uptime
