Spin Coating Systems

G3 Spin Coater

Compact yet packed with performance features, the SCS G3 Spin Coater series combines precision with control for highly effective coating applications development. Adding to its performance is a number of optional features.

Product Information

The SCS G3 Spin Coater series sets the standard in operating precision and programming flexibility. It is engineered to provide a high level of rotation accuracy and repeatability, along with precise acceleration and deceleration control. The result is a spin coating solution that combines options to meet specific lab requirements with a level of performance that delivers confidence with every coating application.

Available with three different bowl sizes, SCS G3 Spin Coaters feature compact housing for convenience when using in fume hoods. Programmable spin coaters have an optional integrated dispense arm, optional exhaust adapter, and are equipped to control solenoid operation of an optional dispensing unit. SCS Spin Coaters are ideal for applying photoresists, polyimides, metal-organics, dopants and silica films on planar substrates.

SCS offers several chucks for use in our SCS Spin Coaters. Our chucks are machined to close tolerances and provide an exceptionally flat, rigid surface for mounting substrates of different sizes, weights, and shapes. SCS can also provide custom chucks depending on your application.

Vacuum chucks are available in stainless steel, hard anodized aluminum, or DELRIN®. Be sure to specify the material of choice and chuck size when ordering.

Type CS : Flat Surface Cross and Scroll
Used to hold a thin, planar substrate such as silicon, glass or germanium on a spinning shaft for maximum rotational speed. Has cross and scroll design.

Type H: O-Ring Vacuum-Holding
Used to hold relative heavy substrates, such as glass, quartz, ceramic and metal. Features O-ring vacuum seal.

Type L: O-Ring Vacuum-Holding
with Mechanical Locating Fingers Designed for heavy, large or unsymmetrical substrates. Guide fingers assist in positioning and holding substrates. Also includes an O-ring vacuum seal.

Type Pedestal: Non-Vacuum
Custom manufactured to precise user-specified dimensions. Designed for double coating applications (substrates do not touch bottom of chuck).
