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

The VT-1000i™ 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 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 is designed as a right-sized PVD and DLC coating system for customers that previously had considered thin-film coating systems to be too complex 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 includes the following key capabilities:


Small footprint, easy to integrate into factory.


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.


Durable diamond-like carbon coatings.
