We designed the Air Retractable Magnet Bar (ARM-Bar™) for sputtering ferromagnetic materials: alloys of iron, cobalt and a few “rare-earth” elements.
With the magnet bar raised and lowered using air bladders, the ARM-Bar™ provides the utilization and up-time benefits of a rotary cathode while allowing safe and easy insertion into the target, adjustment and removal.
In order to penetrate the magnetic material, the ARM-Bar™ has our strongest magnet bar, the QRM-Bar™.
Typical applications include EMI shielding, nickel sputtering as an adhesion layer for polyimide substrates, and magnetic storage.
The e-Cathode™ is a complete cathode solution. SCI e-Cathode™ systems are available in digital and analog styles and are adaptable to meet your needs.
SCI provides OEM equipment builders complete turn-key solutions, ready to interface with their systems. SCI can customize these solutions to provide as much controls integration as desired onboard the e-Cathode™. End users seeking to add additional cathodes to their system look to SCI for plug-and-play solutions. Our e-Cathode clones match all your current external mechanical and electrical interfaces but use SCI end blocks, magnet bars, and cathode control systems.

Magpuls Pulse Power supplies provide highest flexibility and supreme performance for plasma nitriting processes, bias applications and magnetron sputtering including ambitious reactive and HIPIMS processes.
The MAGPULS Unipolar and Bipolar Pulse Power Supply series MP 1, MP 2 and MP 2 – HC are constructed in two separate units. One unit is the DC power supply which provides the DC power into the big capacitor bank of the pulse unit and the pulse unit with the integrated sophisticated ARC Management.
The unipolar pulsed Power Supplies are designed in modular technology. The main components of these power supplies are the DC-Power supply and the pulsing unit which generate the pulsed output voltage with adjustable pulse frequency in the range from DC up to 100kHz. The Arc-management with highest efficiency is adjustable for all different Plasma treatment processes and grants a proper layer quality without any layer damages on the surface.
The bipolar pulsed power supplies model MAGPULS BP are constructed for plasma excitation with highest performance. The bipolar pulsed power supply is a modular designed system consisting of the DC power unit and the bipolar pulse unit, which switches the voltage with a freely adjustable pulse of alternating polarity into the plasma system.
The MAGPULS Bipolar Pulse Power supplies series MP 2 -AS are designed for operating with dual magnetrons for reactive sputtering on substrates as for glass, plastics and metal. The individual operating modes and the enhanced ARC-management allows the bipolar pulse power supplies operation in high quality processes. Typical applications are production of flat panel displays, solar cells, decorative and hard coatings.
Thanks to the short extremely high peak current pulses the pulse power supplies model MAGPULS HPP generate plasma intensity with highest density which leads to an excellent coating quality in high-pulse sputtering (HIPIMS).
Excellent film properties in terms of wear resistance, adhesive strength, hardness and homogeneity.
Easy integration in existing magnetron sputter systems.

IONICS has developed the HARDION industrial ion gun solution solving different technical and economic issues generally associated to the process. Enhance the surface properties of your material without any coatings and using an environmentally friendly technology. The innovation is supported by a Walloon initiative called WALIBEAM and several industrial majors in the fields of surface treatment of glass, metal and polymer are involved.
robeko provides a wide range of high performance thin film coating materials for magnetrons of all manufacturers and a large variety of applications, for example large area coating, precision optics, touch panels, tribological and decorative coatings.
Our supply chain consists of own manufacturing capabilities combined with long-term partnerships to assure maximum quality, minimal lead times and highly competitive prices.
robeko manufactures planar and cylindrical sputtering targets for application in electronics and display production. We provide cylindrical monolithic targets of industrial standard size. Thus we guarantee maximum material density, small grain size and maximum power density combined with good recyclability. The raw material is always on stock.
Many sputtering targets need to be bonded to a backing plate or a magnetron body. When it comes to high power sputtering with low target cracking and good mechanical stability, the bonding procedure is crucial. Our engineers and bonding staff can look back on many years of experience in providing joining techniques to correlate with different material combinations and applications. The right choice of adherence coating, diffusion barriers and the adequate bonding method is a prerequisite for obtaining perfect results.

The Fischerscope XDAL is an x-ray fluorescence (XRF) measurement tool for industrial applications. XRF works by exciting the sample material and detecting the characteristic x-ray emission coming from the sample. The collected data can be used to calculate the material composition or the thickness of a multilayer thin film layer stack of a sample. A motorized XYZ unit allows measurement of profiles or x-y film thickness mappings.
The Bruker Dektak II A is a tactile profilometer for measuring surface roughness or film thickness on prepared samples.
Tactile profilometers measure the force against a small needle and that is moved lateral to the sample. This force is kept constant by changing the position of that needle via a small piezo in Z direction. The piezo movement is logged and gives a height profile of the sample.
