Complex machinery is no stranger to modern manufacturing. Whether it’s integrated into the high-end scientific research process, product research, development, testing, or the manufacturing process itself; pressure-rated vacuum equipment is becoming more and more commonplace. This leads many to wonder: what is it for? First, let’s start by discussing the various types of high-pressure vacuum […]

Making Customer-Focused Project Management the Manufacturing Model of Tomorrow

Businesses are only as good as their people. At Anderson Dahlen, our project managers play a key role in our ongoing success. Every Anderson Dahlen project gets its own project manager to ensure customer concerns and design specifications are met. And our demonstrable track record from 70 years of precision manufacturing has given our customers […]

The Many Crucial Roles of Vacuum Chambers

For more than 30 years we have served as experts in a much wider range of the vacuum spectrum, from moderate vacuum for industrial processes to extremely high vacuum (XHV) for critical scientific study. Production sizes can go from one-of-a-kind research chambers for national labs and universities to production volume chambers for world-class manufacturers. To […]

Anderson Dahlen Vacuum Research Published in Leading Journal

We’re pleased to announce that our research, “Outgassing rate comparison of seven geometrically similar vacuum chambers of different materials and heat treatments,” was recently published in the Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology (JVST) newsletter, “Beneath the AVS Surface.” JVST is devoted to publishing reports of original research, letters, and review articles on microelectronics and […]

Learn About the Vacuum Equipment Leading Neutrino Discoveries

The Applied Vacuum Division (AVD) of Anderson Dahlen, which designs and manufactures custom chambers and precision components for Extreme High Vacuum (XHV) requirements, is providing critical products to research groups at the forefront of the recent surge in neutrino research. While neutrinos are one of the most abundant particles in the universe, they are very […]

NIST and the Applied Vacuum Division of Anderson Dahlen Complete CRADA for the Study of XHV-Capable Chamber Materials

After extensive collaboration efforts, the Applied Vacuum Division of Anderson Dahlen has completed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with NIST to study the effectiveness of various material and pre-fabrication processing techniques for achieving extremely low Hydrogen outgassing rates in vacuum chambers. The requirement for extreme-high vacuum (XHV) systems is increasingly common in advanced […]

Bunch Lengthening System Cryostat for Advanced Photon Source Upgrade

The Contract Award In September of 2017, the Applied Vacuum Division of Anderson Dahlen was awarded a design-to-specification contract for the Bunch Lengthening System (BLS) Cryostat vacuum vessel, lid, gate valve enclosures, 80K thermal radiation shield, magnetic shielding, and 4K liquid helium reservoir. The completed assembly would have dimensions of approximately 7W X 5H X […]

CHESS – Beamline Cross Chamber

Major beamline upgrades are happening at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source – CHESS. CHESS-U is a three-year, $15M upgrade project that will dramatically extend CHESSs capabilities for cutting-edge innovative science and technology. Eleven experimental stations have been commissioned to provide 3600 hours per year of x-ray operations. As part of this upgrade to the […]

High Vacuum Viewport Shutter

We offer multiple versions of high vacuum viewport shutter. These viewports are designed for coating systems, where the expense of a UHV viewport is cost prohibitive, and the physical size of the UHV rotary feedthrough is too cumbersome. These shutters offer the advantage of a short length to maximize viewing angle into the coating chamber, […]
