The new EV S-6 from Ferrotec is a unique
and innovative electron beam evaporator which offers unrivalled
flexibility in source location. It is different from other
electron beam evaporators in that the vacuum compatible stepper
motor and water cooling are inside the evaporator rather than
outside the chamber. This means that the EV S-6 is not constrained
by a motion feedthrough and can operate in any location or
height in the chamber.
This flexibility in positioning makes it
ideal for applications such as production coatings or laboratory-scale
evaporations with a variety of different materials or with
materials requiring continuous pocket rotation. It is also
ideal for system retrofits as, unlike with a traditional evaporator,
there is no need for baseplate holes to be a specific size
or in particular location.
