The Cadence System:
Compact, Fast Magnetron Sputtering Deposition System for Functional Coatings

VaporTech Cadence System

Cadence® magnetron coating systems excel at quickly depositing functional coatings that dramatically improve your product’s wear resistance, reduce friction, increase heat resistance, and improve product life for many industrial and consumer products. Using our proprietary RAAMS® (Remote Anode Assisted Magnetron Sputtering) process provides high deposition rates to shorten coating times and multiple coating sources to further increase deposition rates or deposit composite materials. RAAMS is a high-energy process that improves coating structure, hardness, and wear resistance compared to traditional PVD sputtering systems. Cadence systems are compact, fast, and easy for even smaller manufacturing operations to use and maintain.
