Vacuum Design & Engineering
The design of your vacuum system will have a huge impact on its performance. A 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 in an attempt to reach a desired base pressure, when a better vacuum system design can achieve the same goal. This energy-intensive approach ends up being significantly 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 extensive experience with vacuum systems and a range of materials allows us to reach your design pressure goals more efficiently. Many of the chambers and products we produce have been redesigned or modified by Atlas to enhance manufacturability or improve vacuum performance. We even design and engineer custom chambers from napkin sketches and hand gesture conversations!
