for Academia & Government Laboratories

Our vast portfolio of bespoke chamber and system projects, gives us a wealth of knowledge and experience for one-off chamber builds. We can offer a dedicated team to assist you in the design and production of your custom chamber requirements, offering complex geometry chambers with tight focal points and tolerances.

Designed for Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) Applications

We supply bespoke ultra-high vacuum chambers manufactured to your specific requirements. After being assigned a project engineer, who will oversee the build from design through to completion, we will discuss the chamber application. Typical applications may be one of the following:

  • Surface Analysis
  • Preperation Chamber
  • Deposition Chamber
  • Transfer Chamber
  • Radial Telescopic Transfer Arm
  • Load Lock

Common Materials and Tolerances

Common body materials include, 316L and 304L Stainless Steel, Nickel Based Super Alloys i.e Mu-Metal and Alloy 6082-T6 (Aluminium).


Maximum Chamber Size (W) 700mm x (D) 700mm x (H) 1000mm and 500kg Mass.


Standard Tolerances*

  • Phi & Theta Angles ±0.5°

  • Port Length, General ±1mm, Analyser Port Only ±0.5mm

  • General Tolerance R2.0mm

  • Leak Rate 2x10-10 mbar ls-1

*Tolerances can be improved depending on manufacturing drawings supplied and machining methods
