Leybold has developed a coating system, which relies on a recognized metal evaporation process to reveal fingerprints on items containing fingerprint evidence. Deposition of thin gold or silver layers and a zinc layer, by means of thermal evaporation makes even weak fingerprints visible.
The system includes one removable substrate holder on telescopic rails which enables coating of large substrates. A window glass with 400 mm in diameter and LED lights allows a good specimen visibility. The system will be operated with a touch Panel with reduced number of push buttons and automatic sequences.
Furthermore, the system is designed for fast pump down to reach the process pressure within some minutes.
