Kibron LayerX is a precision dip coating equipment for the deposition of thin films on different substrates. It can be used as a standalone unit (Microtrough X) or integrated into the Kibron Microtrough Gx environment (Breadboard std). The LayerX Pro is interfaced and powered via a USB connection and is controlled by a dedicated MSWindows software. The software has a wide range of ready commands as well as a script language for programming. The software also interfaces to the Microtrough control data for event based control – you can for example detect when the substrate touches the liquid surface by following the surface pressure sensor and subsequently change operation of the dipper.
The base support has M6 mounting holes for anchoring on the Microtrough G2 and G4 baseplates, or on standard optical breadboard. On the attachment for Microtrough Gx M5 screws are tightened from below the baseplate. When used with Microtrough XS the dipper is on a separate stand.
The dipper is delivered with clamps for both Langmuir-Blodgett and Langmuir-Schaeffer (version with suction cup) clamps.
Various clamps and arms are available. Please see Related products.
