Pulsed Carbon Fiber Evaporation

The desk vacuum carbon coating system – DCR 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.

Carbon Rod Evaporation (optional)


The Desk high vacuum carbon coater could be equipped with carbon rod head (optional). For this case an external 0-100A high current power supply should be used instead of the internal high current power supply which is designed for carbon fiber evaporation.

Touch Screen Control with Colorful Display

Desk carbon coater is equipped with a 7” colored touch screen with full automatic control using a user-friendly software to control and adjust the deposition process data. The vacuum and coating sequence information can be observed as digital data or curves on the touch screen. The last 300 coatings information is saved on the history page and can be transferred to PC by a USB port on the device.

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 (optional).

Newly Designed Sample Holder

A new 4-inch rotating sample holder is designed for the system to increase the deposition area and the number of coating stubs in a run (customizable for max. 50×1 mm stubs).
