High volume vacuum box coater

1200-DLX-2 is the next generation of Satisloh’s high volume coating system. Completely redesigned to maximize productivity, reliability, and energy efficiency. 1200-DLX-2, offers multiple process applications to deposit AR (Anti-Reflective) and/or mirror coatings on organic and mineral glass lenses via thermal evaporation process (PVD). The box coater is built for the requirements of large labs and stock lens production.


Satisloh engineered a new process generation, only and exclusively available for 1200-DLX and 1200-DLX-2 box coaters:

  • Ioncote™ k+ X / Ioncote™ Carbon (available only with Satisloh lacquers)
  • Ioncote™ k X
  • Performance X
  • Multiquartz X
  • Spectraflex X

Benefits and features

  • An intelligent, movable shield system for the Meissner trap optimizes pumping speed and protects against surface contamination
  • A new Meissner trap with a 15% larger surface area allows for faster pump times to the start of the deposition process – and therefore higher throughput. It also increases process repeatability
  • New, user-friendly HMI software and touchscreen make 1200-DLX-2 operation easy
  • The intelligent HMI software allows to quickly change between sets of process parameters
  • Extremely robust: reinforced vacuum chamber with welded tubes improves chamber thermal stabilization for maximum fatigue and corrosion resistance
  • New simplified e-beam emitter with 50% fewer parts for easier maintenance and increased reliability
  • New portable degassing system can be shared between many coaters and eliminates the need to have expensive top heaters in every machine, greatly reducing cleaning and maintenance
  • Green: diffusion pump heater modulation and insulated jacket cover reduce energy consumption by up to 25%
  • Full compatibility with Satisloh´s MES-360 manufacturing execution system
  • Up to 10% higher productivity
  • up to 25% lower energy consumption
  • 10% reduced maintenance time
  • next level of robust design for maximum up-time
