Cylindrical chambers can be fabricated from standard off-the-shelf tube and pipe, or custom diameter aluminum roll-ups. An extensive selection of standard tube wall thicknesses is available. Tube and pipe wall thickness will be according to the diameter and schedule selected. Custom roll-up chambers are made from aluminum plate and are typically 5000 series aluminum alloy. All cylindrical chambers can be made with minimum wall thicknesses because of the inherent strength offered by tubular geometry.

Atlas Technologies is the world leader in aluminum vacuum chamber engineering and manufacturing. With over 30 years experience in cutting-edge vacuum product design, we pride ourselves in providing the world's finest and most advanced UHV aluminum chamber technology. Atlas' aluminum vacuum chamber production techniques (Chamber Configurations) can be broken down into five basic categories:
  • Plate-to-Plate Chambers
  • Cylindrical Chambers
