The gun casing is fabricated in a ferritic steel to provide a magnetic screen for the beam. Ten turn indicating potentiometers are fitted to X, Y and focus controls as standard while a digital timer giving a range from one to 99 seconds in 0.1 second increments is an optional extra. </p><p>Another accessory available with the Mark II is an X-Y table manupulator. Both its axes are powered by variable speed DC motors, running with low friction linear bearings. The longer axis is the welding axis, with a 3] in. stroke, at a variable speed between 10 in. per minute and 100 in. per minute. The 4 in. x 3 ~ in. work table has a datum ledge at the rear, parallel to this axis. The shorter axis (3 in.) is for indexing to the beam, the motor being geared for a slower speed range to give sensitivity of control when positioning.

In addition to the rota- tion and spin of the workholder planets around the evaporation source, each indi- vidual substrate slice rotates around its own centre; ensuring perfect uniformity of deposition---even over steps at random orientations. Typical deposition uniformi- ties are substantially better than 1 per cent between points on a substrate or between different slices in the same load. The satel- lite planet (see photo) has nine 2 in. slice holders, held in a single row between the rim of the planet and a central boss, and separated by a free running spider. Using the same principle as is used to rotate the planet, each slice holder is rotated by fric- tion acting at its points of contact with the planet rim and boss. Versions for 18 and 24 in. bell jars are available with respective capacities of 27 and 45 2 in. slices. 1 in. slices can be specified as an alternative.

The new furnace systems include light- weight, high strength fixtures and a com- plete selection of work handling equipment. Other items in the range include general research furnaces, with temperature capaci- ties to 3,000C, and furnaces with gas, water, and oil quenching facilities.

These solid-state, digital setpoint controllers provide two modes of operation with adjustable band and reset. A deviation indicator is included. Models 4045 and 4046 are rated for inductive loads and current limit capability is included with the Model 4046.
