The market-leading Q150 series coaters from Quorum Technologies recently achieved yet another notable milestone when the 1,000th model was dispatched from their Ashford UK factory.
Sputter Coaters and SEM/TEM Carbon Coaters “This significant landmark was achieved in only 32 months from the launch of the Q series and is a reflection of just how well the products has been received within the electron microscopy (EM) specimen preparation and thin film coating markets,” explained David Barnbrook, Managing DirecQuortor at Quorum Technologies.
“We are also pleased that our customers can currently benefit from fast delivery times, with the Q150 series typically available for dispatch within only one week of acceptance of purchase orders.”
The Q150 can be tailored to suit the needs of most EM coating applications. It is available with rotary or turbo pumping and in three formats: sputter coating, carbon evaporation or both combined in a single space-saving bench-top design.
Built with intuitive touch-screen control, the Q150 series allows quick access to both stored and customer-entered coating ‘recipes’. The performance and flexibility of the system is further enhanced by a wide range of ‘drop-in’ specimen stages and coating head inserts. Other optional accessories include film thickness measurement and glow discharge. For large area deposition we also offer the Q300 series, which is available in three formats, including for coating both oxidising and non-oxidising metals onto large specimens (up to an 8” wafer). The Q300T D dual head system allows independent sequential sputtering of two metals without the need to break vacuum - making it ideal for many thin film applications.
Like all Quorum Technologies products, the Q150 and Q300 series comes with a three-year warranty.
