Pulsed Carbon Fiber Evaporation

The desk vacuum carbon coater is able to perform pulsed carbon fiber evaporation. Short pulses provide more controlled deposition and significantly reduces the amount of debris associated with traditional carbon deposition.

Touch Screen Control with Colourful Display

Desk carbon coater is equipped with a 7” coloured touch screen with full automatic control and data input that can be operated by even inexperienced users. The vacuum, current and deposition information can be monitored as digital data or curves on the touch screen. The last 300 coatings information can be detected in the history page.

Sample Holder

The DCR can be equipped with different sample stage configurations depending on the user requirements. The sample stages are rotatable with adjustable height and can be changed easily.

The rotary planetary sample stage is a good choice for uniform coating of porous specimens.
