FA: Essex, UK - 2 vacuum thin-film coating machines

Laboratory clearance in Essex, UK
We have two specialised coaters for sale. Both were in regular use until recently for preparing specimens for optical and electron
microscopy. They would also be useful for fabricating any device requiring thin, uniform films - such as optical devices, nanostructures etc.
1. Edwards E306 vacuum coater, used for evaporating submicron aluminium films onto substrates up to 210 by 300 mm. Two stage internal vacuum pump.
2. Biorad 5200 sputterer, used for depositing gold and carbon films onto substrates up to 50 mm diameter, complete with freestanding Edwards vacuum pump.
Both are offered in good clean working order with many spares, consumables and full original manufacturer's manuals. Operation from 240V standard UK AC mains and piped water. The sputterer also needs an argon purge for gold coating. However, we cannot deliver, so these are offered strictly on the basis that the buyer(s) dismantle and collect.
