VT-3000i System: Highest-Capacity Cathodic Arc Industrial Coating Machine

Get Started with Our Industrial PVD and DLC/PECVD Coating System.


The VT-3000i PVD coating machine is an industrial PVD and DLC/PECVD coating system 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 various materials such as steel, brass, zinc, or prepared plastic, giving products made of multiple materials a common finish and appearance. Additionally. VaporTech will optimize coatings to meet your specifications for color or function.
