Angstrom Sciences’ High Precision Flex Assembly

Pittsburgh, PA, August 2, 2005 - Angstrom Sciences, Inc. now offers a high precision controlled flex assembly in the Standard Product Range.

As compared with our standard flex assembly, this high precision model has a threaded adjustment screw for precise adjustment up to 35 degrees. Designed in low profile, it can be fitted to any of Angstrom Sciences’ standard circular cathode assemblies. Angstrom Sciences also supplies shutter mechanisms, uniformity masks and cross contamination shields.

Angstrom Sciences is the world leader in design and manufacturing of magnetron sputtering cathodes used to produce thin films by the PVD process. Sputtering is used to manufacture advanced products such as microelectronics, storage media, energy efficient architectural glass and fiber optic network components. The company holds patents in the use of shaped magnets and turbulent cooling water flow in magnetron designs. Angstrom magnetrons provide the unique combination of high target utilization and deposition rates with uncompromised film quality - known collectively as the “Angstrom Advantage™.” The company has a worldwide business presence and is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA.
