The Desk V’s improved capabilities with recipe programming reflect Denton’s continued market leadership and initiative by constantly improving our products driven by both market and customer requirements.

Denton Vacuum, a leading designer and manufacturer of systems that deposit ultra-thin metallic and dielectric coatings, has announced the upgrade of its Desk V sputter deposition system, the industry’s gold standard for electron microscopy sample preparation.

Compact, capable and versatile, the Desk V has been a stable workhorse used worldwide by corporations, universities, and institutions for years. With the new upgrade, each Desk V now features a color touch screen interface that supports recipe creation and storage. In today’s multi-user environment, this new capability increases research productivity and helps ensure consistent, highly repeatable results. Stored user-defined recipes support quick switching between different preparation materials (e.g., Au and Pt) and different sample preparation protocols, all of which result in greater productivity, repeatability and ease of use.

“Denton was the first to both develop and market a compact yet powerful system for the microscopy and research community back in 1964,” said Dave Leonhardt, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Denton. “The Desk V’s improved capabilities with recipe programming reflect Denton’s continued market leadership and initiative by constantly improving our products driven by both market and customer requirements.”

Designed and built for the busy researcher and microscopist, the Desk V’s color touch screen control provides intuitive and simple operation, including timed sputter and etch process set‐points for power, pressure, duration and venting. With the Desk V’s new capability to create, store, and run up to 10 coating recipes, process runs can now achieve even better consistency, more precise layers, and more uniform, repeatable coating results.

The versatile, user‐friendly Desk V is backed by a 12‐month warranty on parts and labor, over 50 years of Denton Vacuum process knowledge, an in‐house process engineering group, worldwide representation and support, and a Global Factory Service Center.
