UK and Ireland Distributor Appointment for Safematic Vacuum Coaters Announced

May 12 2017 Comments 0

Located in Switzerland’s St Gallen Rhine Valley, a region renowned for expertise in vacuum and coating technology, Safematic GmbH manufactures highly innovative and technology-leading sputter coating and carbon coating systems for electron microscopy and thin film applications.

For 24 years Sussex-based Labtech has been a leading supplier of instrumentation into UK research laboratories, built on a strong emphasis on high quality products, service and support. The new electron microscopy division at Labtech is building on this reputation and is delighted to partner with Safematic.

“Although Safematic are a relatively new company in the bench top vacuum coating field, they have many years of experience and manufacture truly innovative and user-friendly coating products,” explained Steve Cham, Labtech’s Business Development Manager. “High quality carbon coating is a key technique in many SEM and TEM laboratories,“ Steve continued “and the unique, patented carbon fibre spooling system is a very significant advantage allowing up to 50 coatings to be carried out without needing to change the carbon source.”

Safematic’s CCU-10 series of modular sputter/carbon coaters are available in rotary pumped or turbo pumped configurations, with an easy low to high vacuum upgrade path.

The CCU-010 series of coaters include many innovations such as quick-change, self-contained coating heads for ease of use and servicing, a built-in dual-position film thickness monitor as standard and sputtering head cooling to allow very long process runs – important for many thin film applications.
