032 PRIMS Basic MS System

Simple and fully functional sputter deposition unit for reproducible thin film layers applying. Plug & work compact design. The process chamber contains 3 ports for magnetron sputtering sources (for metals and inorganics), mounted in a sputter-down configuration. Up to two sources used at the same time (co-deposition) The substrate stage is intended for up to 2-inch diameter samples, with a heating & rotation option. 



Prevac are a world leader in the design and production of analytical and deposit scientific and research equipment. Their systems operate in a high and ultra high vacuum environment. They design and construct UHV and HV systems fully adapted to the individual requirements of research projects and industrial applications.

Key Features

  • Plug & work construction
  • Easy-to-use mobile unit for quick testing and sputtering coatings
  • Process chamber with large vacuum door for easy target or substrate replacement
  • Equipped with MS2 100 ISO-K magnetron sources and novel M600DC-PS power supply
  • Substrate stage for up to 2″ diameter samples
  • Process chamber diameter: Ø 355 mm
  • 3 ports for 2-inches magnetron sources
  • 1 viewport – observation windows with shutter
  • Protection shield against cross-contamination
  • Base pressure range 10-7 mbar
  • Fast pumping system with vacuum gauges
  • Ar gas automatic dosing by mass flow control
  • A rigid main frame on wheels allows for easy placement of the system
  • Manual throttle valve


The fast pumping system (with a manual throttle valve) combined with the small volume of the process chamber allows you to reach the base pressure in a short time.

The process chamber is equipped with connecting flanges in HV standard for connecting current and future equipment, including: 

  • Up to 3 magnetron sources 2”
  • Substrate manipulator
  • Pumping system
  • Protection shield against cross-contamination
  • Quartz balance
  • Viewport – observation windows with shutter
  • Vacuum gauges
  • Pyrometer
