Vacuum Deposition Mirror Coating System
Complete NCR 3117 Vacuum Deposition Coating Deposition System for mirrors up to 18".
We only perform coatings on transmissive optics and do not coat mirrors.
The last coating performed in this chamber was GOLD. Feel free to try to liberate it and recoup your investment.
Pneumatic Gate valve
Automatic low-vac, high-vac switching pump-down control
Hydraulic powered bell jar lift
Coating fixtures for reflective mirror coatings
This machine is in functional condition to use today*.
Requires a water source or water chiller to cool the diffusion pump and compressed air to actuate valves.
(If you have no air compressor, we have one that used to go with it)
We can crate this for freight shipping within the US. Shipping estimates are available and vary based on access to a dock vs liftgate service and location in the US. Generally, expect freight service to cost $400-1000.
*Each coating machine is typically configured for unique coating requirements. Reflective coatings typically are performed without layer thickness monitoring. No layer thickness monitors are included. For questions about function, please feel free to contact us.
