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.

Efficiency & flexibility

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.

  • Planetary system for maximum uniformity on large substrates
  • Simplified e-beam emitter with 50% fewer parts for easier maintenance and increased reliability.
  • Portable degassing system for coating operations utilizing low temperature coating processes.
  • Extremely robust: reinforced vacuum chamber with welded tubes improves chamber thermal stabilization for maximum fatigue and corrosion resistance
  • Green: diffusion pump heater modulation and insulated jacket cover reduce energy consumption by up to 25%.
  • Next level of robust design for maximum uptime.

Easy to use

  • User-friendly HMI software and touchscreen make 1200-PO operation easy.
  • Single EBG and thermal resistive sources.
  • High power Ion Gun for low stress and shift free coatings.
  • High capacity EBG with low cross contamination design.
  • Standard dual crystal head with shutter, or optional 12-crystal indexer.
  • Dry preliminary pumping group (optional).
