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, etc.) without excessive pumping costs. We’ve seen many instances where people add bigger pumps to their vacuum systems, attempting to reach a desired base pressure, when a better vacuum system design can achieve the same goal. This energy intensive approach also ends up being more expensive. For UHV and XHV poor vacuum design can make it impossible to reach base pressure goals no matter the pumping method. 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 have been redesigned or modified by Atlas to enhance manufacturability or improve vacuum performance. Many we design and engineer are from napkin sketches or hand gesture conversations!
