VT-1000i: Easy-to-operate, compact PVD, PE-CVD, and DLC Coating System.

The small VT-1000i™ coating machine is a right-sized PVD, PE-CVD, and DLC coating system for customers that previously had considered thin-film coating systems to be too complicated or expensive. Differentiate your product by applying the same hard, durable PVD or diamond-like carbon (DLC) finishes in your facility that were previously only available to high-volume manufacturing operations.

The compact 6-rack design within this small PVD coating machine can deposit a broad range of durable decorative and functional PVD finishes on metal or plated parts, including some plastics. The VT-1000i is suitable for both small and higher volume applications, and many parts per batch mean a low cost per part and fast return on your investment.
