Polyteknik AS PVD System Thin Film coating service Tornado Compact Lab


Tornado Compact LAB is a compact deposition system – a real lab workhorse, and due to the easy access, easy operation, and high process repeatability, it is a preferred tool for both the young student and the experienced scientist. 

The system is available with evaporation or sputtering sources. It is a versatile entry level deposition system with fully automated process control and data logging with Cryosoft3 HMI. Available with manual load lock for even faster processing. Application examples involve general thin film R&D, photovoltaic materials, multilayer ohmic contacts, oxide and nitride coatings, graded cermet layers, metal coatings for electrodes, and hydrophobic or hydrophilic ceramic layers.
