The MB-ProVap-3 is a research and development tool for thin film deposition under vacuum conditions. The rectangular shaped chamber offers additional space for more sources and optional upgrades such as substrate heating and advanced masking solutions. Due to the design additional pump configurations such as more powerful turbo-molecular and cryo-pumps can be offered.
Instead of the automated chamber lifting mechanism of the MB-EcoVap, this system series offers a rear mounted hinged service door which hermetically seals against ambient conditions. For the glovebox integrated version this unique feature allows maintaining and cleaning the interior of the deposition tool without contaminating the inert conditions inside the connected glovebox.
The space saving sliding front door offers an ergonomically optimized access to all components located inside the MB-ProVap. Routine procedures such as loading the sources, mounting the substrate and cleaning the system after the deposition run are very easy and convenient. The standard features of the MB-ProVap design separate this tool completely from other solutions which have not been originally configured for glovebox integration.
From a process point, a larger chamber with its additional vacuum ports allows for additional sources to be integrated into the chamber and for the overall source arrangement to be optimized which enhances the achievable coating uniformity and process quality. All commonly available sources for RF and DC sputtering, thermal resistance evaporation, organic material coatings and E-Beam processes have been integrated and are successfully used from MBRAUN's growing global customer base.
In addition, a process team has been established at MBRAUN to consult and support customers to choose the appropriate chamber size and to find the optimum source configuration for each specific coating process. The in-house application lab equipped with a MB-ProVap-7G system and several state-of-the-art metrology tools offers the possibility to simulate and verify the process conditions even of challenging coating tasks.
Specifically for the ProVap series MBRAUN offers tailored solutions for demands which do not follow conventional requirements such as enhanced source control (multi-source co-evaporation), customized substrate masking, advanced heated/cooled substrate fixtures and many more.
