Q150 coater sales pass the 500 mark

The phenomenally successful Q150 sputter/carbon coater recently achieved yet another notable milestone when the 500th model was dispatched from our Ashford factory in the UK.

“This landmark was achieved in only 20 months and is a reflection of how well the product has been received within the electron microscopy (EM) specimen preparation market,” explained Matthew Backshall, Operations Director at Quorum Technologies. 

“An added bonus for customers is that the Q150 series is now typically available for dispatch within only one week of acceptance of purchase orders. This is the direct result of the implementation of new, more efficient, lean production processes along with the dedication and hard work of our Ashford team.”

The Q150 can be tailored to suit the needs of most EM coating applications. It is available with rotary or turbo pumping and in three formats: sputter coating, carbon evaporation or both combined in a single space-saving bench-top design.

Built with intuitive touch-screen control, the Q150 series allows quick access to both stored and customer-entered coating ‘recipes’. The performance and flexibility of the system is further enhanced by a wide range of ‘drop-in’ specimen stages and coating head inserts. Other optional accessories include film thickness measurement and glow discharge.

Like all Quorum Technologies products, the Q150 series comes with a generous three-year warranty.
