About Vac Coat

Vac Coat Ltd. is a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality custom-made vacuum coating systems based on Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) methods.

With more than 28 years of experience in vacuum and thin film deposition technologies, our research and development team, including academic scientists and qualified engineers, fully supports and advises customers in choosing the proper system for their needs, system installation and training, and after-sales services. We also make coating systems to meet customers’ special inquiries by developing innovative designs. 

Vac Coat vacuum coating systems range from low/high-vacuum sputter coaters like DSR1 and DST1, generally used for sample preparation in electron microscopy imaging, to high-vacuum sputter coater/thermal evaporators systems like DST2-TG or DST3-T with many optional features including plasma cleaner, mainly used for thin film deposition for research purposes.

Designed and manufactured components by our engineering team meet high-quality standards since many high-ranked universities and research centers are among our valuable customers, who are satisfied with our vacuum coating systems.

Vac Coat’s worldwide distribution network with more than 15 suppliers around the world,  works thoroughly to effectively support our academic and industrial clients persistently, from purchasing our instruments to operating them efficiently.
