Bespoke and Catalogue
Components for Academia & Research Laboratories

Over 20 years supplying chambers, manipulation devices, valves, drives and sub assemblies engineered to the highest specifications. VACGEN offer a wide range of configurable high precision XYZ manipulators, transfer devices and valves to which can be tailored to suit your requirements.

Designed to be at the heart of your supply chain

We have a vast catalogue range of standard components, from valves to magnetically coupled transfer devices, designed to be compatible with many UHV systems. We have extensive knowlegde on UHV systems and have worked on projects from beam-line choppers to x-ray source movement. VACGEN are the partner of choice for UHV systems around the world.

XYZ Precision Sample Manipulation

Precision movement, stability and positioning of samples and substrates within a vacuum envelope is an essential process in material analysis. Vacgen's class 7 cleanroom is equipt with flow-lines and test facilities to ensure quality is paramount and manipulators are built to the same standard every time. Options include heating and Ln2 cooling modules for 18mm flag style transfer and larger samples.

Drives and Motion Components

Sample transfer is an integral part of every system, being able to successfully translate a sample from the load lock to the analysis or deposition chamber. Vacgen have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to movement in vacuum and offer an array of standard drives and motion. If you are looking for a magnetically coupled transfer device with long travel lengths, zero outgassing and high bake-out temperatures, then check out the MLRV series.

ZCR Valves

Ultra-High Vacuum Valves

UHV Valves are an integral part of every system build. We supply a comprehensive range of valves, from all metal right angle valves for true UHV applications to ultra-fine controllable leak valves which have been designed to eliminate hysteresis. Our aim is to provide you with the very best UHV valves.

Why Choose VACGEN as your supply partner?
