Highest-Capacity, Low-Temperature Cathodic Arc Industrial Coating Machine

Get Started With Our Industrial PVD, CVD, and PE-CVD and DLC Coating System 


The VT-3000i PVD coating machine is an industrial PVD, CVD, PE-CVD, and DLC coating system designed  for high throughput or larger parts up to 122 cm (48 in). Our unique centrally-mounted cathodic arc deposition source ensures you get consistency and maximum control over coating uniformity and properties. Lower temperatures enable you to coat a wide variety of materials such as steel, brass, zinc, or prepared plastic, giving products made of multiple materials a common finish and appearance. Additionally. VaporTech will custom-design coatings to meet your specifications for color or function.

The industrial PVD, CVD, PE-CVD, and DLC coating system is the newest version of our VT-3000i PVD coating series systems that have operated successfully in industrial applications around the world for more than 20 years. Improvements include a 40% reduction in footprint, upgraded vacuum pumping system, updated software, and reduced maintenance requirements.
