Your needs

Manual tuning of the plasma chamber pressure lead to weak reproducibility and remain the main reason of PDMS bonding failure.

Equinox automatically control the pressure of your plasma chamber to quickly reach and accurately keep the required pressure.

How it works

The pressure is automatically set thanks to the electro valve and the gauge controller.
The precision depends on the suction power of the pump and thus depends on each installation but Equinox can be adjusted to each situation during the installation to offer an accurate set more or less 50mTorr.

Maintenance and hazard

Equinox gathers really tough tools and almost none maintenance is required. The pressure control is guaranteed thanks to an electro valve that can handle 250 million of cycles and thus promises a long life time. The only maintenance operation is to change periodically the air filter if you use ambiant air as gas.


Fast pressure set:

The pressure will stabilize from the atmosphere to around 500 mTorr under 1 minutes.

Easy to use:

Switch on the pump and that’s it. No need of intervention after saving the set point pressure.


The stability can be adjusted to the equipment and the pressure kept at +/- 50mTorr.


Do you need to modify your PDMS bonding process ? Change the plasma pressure set-point in 1 minute for all your following bonding.

Bored of PDMS bonding failure ?

Equinox ensure you to keep the best PDMS bonding condition overtime.

Equinox offers you to easily control your vacuum level inside your plasma chamber. Indeed, contrary to a manual vacuum gauge where the laps time can be as long as several minutes, Equinox enables a stable and fast set to the right pressure.

Equinox can be used with several gases and directly with air, that enables to do efficient and fast PDMS plasma bonding. A necessary 5µm filter is added when working with ambient air, to guarantee a clean air.
