Vacuum equipment is used for degassing, welding, and the manufacturing of thin films, semiconductors, optics and specialty materials.
Components that allow the transfer of fluid, gas, mechanical motion or electrical power into a chamber isolated by an environmental difference; e.g., a high pressure or vacuum protective atmosphere.
Finishing and coating systems, equipment and components, are used to prepare and apply paint, organic and inorganic coatings on to surfaces in industrial applications.
Ion beam guns and electron beam guns produce beams of electrons, ions or other particles for use in chemical and surface analysis, particle physics, resin curing or semiconductor manufacturing.
Equipment utilized to deposit thin films or modify the composition of a surface; e.g., through ion implantation or a nitriding or carburizing diffusion process.
Vacuum bagging equipment and vacuum infusion equipment is used during the manufacture of fiberglass and composite parts to remove air voids and better infuse the reinforcing cloth with resin.
Vacuum chambers and components are specialized vessels that can maintain a high vacuum process environment for manufacturing thin films, microelectronics, optics and materials.
Vacuum cleaners are capable of picking up large quantities of material and/or liquids. They can be portable devices or part of a central vacuum system.
Vacuum cups and vacuum pads engage an object and attach to it with an applied, sealed vacuum. The pads then lift, move, or position the work piece in assembly or inspection applications.
Vacuum flanges and fittings connect runs of pipe and tubing in vacuum or process gas system to other tubing sections, pipe, hose, valves, pumps, chambers or other vacuum components.
Vacuum furnaces are heat-treating furnaces that use a low atmospheric pressure instead of a protective gas atmosphere. This helps to alleviate surface reactions.
Vacuum gauges are devices for measuring vacuum or sub-atmospheric pressures.
Vacuum manipulators include components for moving or positioning wafers or items in vacuum chambers or systems such as mounting devices, load locks, wobble sticks or wafer robots.
Vacuum ovens are heat-treating ovens that use a low atmospheric pressure instead of a protective gas atmosphere. This helps to alleviate surface reactions.
Vacuum pumps provide sub-atmospheric pressure for a variety of industrial and scientific applications where a vacuum is required.
Vacuum sensors are devices for measuring vacuum or sub-atmospheric pressures.
Vacuum switches are a type of pressure switch that functions in the vacuum end of the pressure spectra. They measure vacuum pressure (negative pressure).
Vacuum traps, vacuum getters and vacuum filters are used to remove tramp gases with a cooled surface, molecular sieve, filtration, or other processes.
Vacuum valves are used when a vacuum must be maintained in a closed system.
Vacuum viewports and access doors are components for viewing, accessing or transferring samples or process devices in a vacuum chamber or system.
Instruments such as quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) monitors, ellipsometers, RHEED systems, imaging stations, CD-SEMs, ion mills, C-V systems specifically designed for wafer metrology or in-situ monitoring of thin film parameters during thin film or semiconductors wafer processing.
