The Low Price, Vacuum-Free Spin Coater You Can Trust

Produce high-quality films without any substrate warping


Overview | Specifications | Features | Gallery | In the Box | Accessories | Resources and Support


The vacuum-free Ossila Spin Coater is ideal for spin coating in busy, fast-paced labs where space is at a premium. With spin speeds up to 6,000 rpm and cycles up to 1000 seconds, the system is robust, affordable, and trusted by academics and researchers around the world. The inbuilt control system allows you to have 10 separate user profiles, making it a perfect system for shared research facilities.

The system includes a free PP all-in-one spin coater chuck as standard, or you can upgrade to a PTFE chuck for enhance chemical resistance. Using fluid dynamics simulations, our spin coater chuck improve air flow dynamics and mechanical performance at high speeds. This gives you a new level of control over your thin film production.

For controllable, automated dispensing of solvents, our spin coaters are also available with either our single syringe pump or dual syringe pump at a discounted price as part of the Ossila Spin Coating Kit. More advanced spin coating processes can also take advantage of the Ossila Spin Coater Advanced, with increased spin speed, improved speed stability, and longer spin cycles.

Durable materials and build

We recently purchased an Ossila Spin Coater. Its compact size and vacuum-free system is ideal for our rather over-crowded laboratory, and it has enabled us to prepare a series of high-quality block copolymer thin films. The chucks make it easy to use different substrates and we have programmed several spin cycles, which allows systematic variation of the copolymer film thickness with good reproducibility.

Spin Coater Features


Large range of speeds

Large Range of Speeds

Spin speeds range from 120 to 6,000 rpm, covering a range of different spin coating conditions — from slow dry crystallisation, to ultra-thin films.

All-in-one chuck design

Multi-substrate Chuck

The all-in-one design holds four common substrate sizes without the need to switch between chucks. The PP chuck improves airflow over the substrate, reduces solvent build up, while ensuring mechanical stability at extremely high rotational speeds. Or, upgrade to a PTFE chuck for enhanced chemical resistance.

Easy to install

Vacuum-Free

With no vacuum or nitrogen line to connect, simply plug the spin coater into a power socket to get started on your research. Ossila spin coaters can produce uniform films with zero substrate warping or damage, even when coating flexible substrates.

Full control

Full Control

The inbuilt control system allows you to have 10 separate user profiles — with each profile capable of saving 10 recipes with up to 50 steps. All this makes our spin coater perfect for anyone that has to share equipment in a busy lab.

Fewer variables, better films

Fewer Variables, Better Films

The inbuilt spirit level and adjustable feet ensure a flat spinning axis, and the vacuum-free chuck prevents warping in thin substrates. Both factors lead to better uniformity in films — and better device performance.

Safety First

Safety First

The spin coater is powered by a 24 V DC power supply, so no high voltage or specialist power with additional requirements is needed. Shielded from solvents and tampering, there is a magnetic safety switch that stops the motor when the lid is open.

Why Go Vacuum-Free?


Many spin coaters in the market use vacuum pumps to hold substrates while they spin. The Ossila Spin Coater uses an innovative chuck design that does not require a vacuum. Substrates are held in place by recesses cut into a polypropylene chuck, allowing excess coating material to be drained away.

Thin substrates are likely to be warped inwards by vacuum chucks, affecting coating uniformity. The force of vacuum on the solutions deposited on top of porous substrates, such as ceramics, also leads to inhomogeneity. This reduces the quality and performance of devices. Our vacuum-free chucks ensure an even film distribution by keeping your substrates flat and free from damage, even if they are flexible substrates.

Without a vacuum line, the Ossila Spin Coater can be set up anywhere with a single mains socket. Spin coat on a lab bench, in a fume hood, or a glove box, all in the same day thanks to its easy setup and compact size.

Most spin coaters are also burdened by the hidden cost of vacuum pumps that are usually excluded from the full system price. Vacuum pumps are prone to breaking, resulting in expensive repairs and delays. This is mainly caused by excess solvents being sucked into the vacuum line, damaging the internal components. Short-term and long-term costs can be reduced by using the vacuum-free Ossila Spin Coater, which gives you everything you need to start spin coating.
