VT-1000i: Compact, Higher-Capacity PVD Coating Machine for Small to Medium-Size Operations.

 

The small VT-1000i™ coating machine is a right-sized PVD 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 VT-1000i™ PVD coating system shares almost the same footprint as our smallest VT-Series unit but with approximately 6 times the capacity. 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 additional capacity of the VT-1000i is suitable for higher volume applications, and more parts per batch mean a lower cost per part and faster return on your investment.

The VT-1000i PVD Coating System includes the following key capabilities:

Compact

Small footprint, easy to integrate into factory.

Simple

Easy to operate and maintain.

Low cost

Low per-part coating costs.

Part sizes

Coat large parts up to 100 cm long.

Remote Access

Factory remote diagnostics available.

DLC

Durable diamond-like carbon coatings.

If you’ve been comparing small coaters, you may be wondering about the difference between magnatron sputtering and cathodic arc.

For decorative use and diamond-like carbon (DLC), cathodic arc vapor deposition is the best coating option. Our lower temperature advanced vapor deposition (LTAVD™) thin-film coating process uses a cathodic arc with a high energy of deposition. This creates a denser coating than traditional sputtering processes in which sparser coatings degrade more quickly over time.

For coating functional, tribological, & biocompatible products, the VaporTech® Cadence™ system patented RAAMS™ (remote anode advanced magnetron sputtering) process is above and beyond traditional sputtering coating. RAAMS increases the energy of deposition to create denser coatings, increasing your product’s hardness, durability, and wear-resistance.
