Vacuum Design & Engineering
The design of your vacuum system will have a huge impact on its performance.
Good design will get you the performance you require (base pressure, pump down speed…) without excessive pumping costs. We’ve seen many instances where people add bigger pumps to their vacuum system attempting reach a base pressure when a better vacuum system design can achieve the goal. This energy intensive approach also ends-up being more expensive. And for UHV and XHV, poor vacuum design can make it impossible to reach base pressure goals no matter the pumping. We are happy to help. Our deep experience with vacuum and fluency with materials allows us to reach your design pressure goals more efficiently.
About 50% of the chambers we make need to be redesigned or modified to enhance manufacturability or improve vacuum performance. And many we design and engineer from napkin sketches or hand waving conversations.
