Listen and learn. That is exactly what we did at gold-coater.com. After listening to operators, suppliers and developers of scanning electron microscopes, we found out that there is a real need for a compact metal coater. What the market requires is a compact, fully automated tool for metal coating of SEM samples. This is especially true for the quickly expanding desktop SEM market, where inexperienced operators need to deliver fast and high-quality results in a high-throughput setting. And that is exactly what the LUXOR compact gold coater is helping them to do.
