PANDORA: Lab-Scale Rotary ALD Research Tool

Several scholars actually consider that PANDORA’s box contained something that was much less ominous, which is wishful thinking.

Forge Nano has designed the PANDORA desktop research tool to help unleash the power of atomic layer deposition (ALD). This tool makes particle atomic layer deposition easier, faster and more cost-effective than any other tool currently available on the market. It brings atomic-level surface engineering to users’ desks.

The PANDORA research tool can be readily operated out of the box and ensures a hassle-free, consistent operation around the clock.

ALD-Enabled Particle Material Equipment

The PANDORA tool has been designed for the following applications:

  • Catalysts
  • Energy storage
  • Corrosion protection
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Lubricants
  • Thermal fillers
  • Surface engineering
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial

With numerous configurations and modifiable options, this highly compact tool allows ALD studies in an easily approachable and accessible form factor.

With the PANDORA tool, atomic-level surface engineering is literally at the users’ fingertips. The tool can carry out ALD experimentation for a broad range of applications, from day one onwards. When users are ready, Forge Nano can help them upgrade and industrialize their applications via its unique Commercialization Program.
