PVD COATINGS AND
COATING TECHNOLOGIES
ON THE PULSE OF THE TIME

Experience and know-how with PVD coatings and of course also PACVD, PECVD coatings.

  • Advice on all PVD processes

  • Assistance in the selection of the associated materials

  • Optimizing the performance of PVD coating systems

  • Increase in performance in the production processes

  • Development of the necessary test procedures for quality control

Support throughout the entire PVD process with a holistic view of all components and process steps

Development of user-specific coating processes on customer-specific systems and / or future PVD machines.

​In a joint discussion, we work out a detailed set of requirements for a new shift system. Then we initiate the corresponding process steps for the layer development and immediately combine these with the development of suitable test procedures.

for better and more sustainable coating results

Advice on PVD technology and the development of innovative PVD processes

Development of innovative layer systems and also optimization of existing solutions

We develop surface coatings for a wide variety of industries and applications.

This includes the development of new, innovative layer systems as well as the adaptation and improvement of existing solutions. The analysis takes place during the process and guarantees that the development goals can also be represented.

PVD process optimization

Support, advice and support throughout the entire PVD process - both in innovation development, in your own in-house production and in the development process with external service providers.

 

Support in the following areas within shift development and product development:

  • Individual selection, development and recommendation of coating specifications depending on the requirements of the application

  • Evaluation of coated products in terms of their quality and potential for improvement

  • Advice on product optimization as well as quality assurance and quality control

Development of innovative products and colors 

A real black - L value: 30

Strong colors, spec. red, blue green

Requirements and wishes for new products change quickly. For example, intense colors are often required today. Or a deep, rich black is particularly interesting today.

 

Your additional benefit: You set yourself apart from the competition, you have access to coating processes for intense colors, as well as to a black with an L value of 30.

 

The process has been tried and tested. The coating cycle takes about 90 minutes (measured on a coating system from Hauzer: HTC 1250).

Acquisition of PVD systems

Your additional benefit: We help to specify the system not only for your current products, but also for possible future products.

 

The expensive subsequent installations and modifications can thus be avoided.

 

And: We adapt your recipes to the new systems.

  • Elaboration of the specifications of PVD systems.

  • Support, advice and monitoring in the acquisition of PVD systems, cleaning systems, test systems.

  • Implementation of the appropriate training.

Reformulation of the recipes for the new plant

Adapt and improve proven recipes

New systems open up new possibilities. Proven recipes can be adapted and improved. Significant time savings through faster processes are possible, especially with complex shifts. Usually we can represent processes that are 20-30% faster. Likewise a significant increase in the layer quality.

 

Your additional benefit: time savings thanks to short recipe adaptation times. Avoidance of double developments.
