VT-1500i: High-Capacity, Low-Temp Cathodic Arc System – Now with Optional Magnetron Sputtering.

The VT-1500i™ PVD coating system provides approximately 70% of the throughput of our largest production coating system but in a very compact footprint when manufacturing space is limited. This unique system includes both cathodic arc and optional magnetron sputtering technologies in the same machine – up to 3 PVD sources. With the ability to coat parts up to 100 cm long and 10 high-capacity racks, the VT-1500i is a high volume, flexible, price-competitive coating system for manufacturers and coating service providers.

Built with the same trusted LTAVD® (low-temperature arc vapor deposition) technology as our popular VT-3000i coating systems, the VT-1500i PVD coating machine can deposit a broad range of bright and dark metallic colors as well as our diamond-like carbon (DLC) and chromium-based functional coatings. Now with sputtering capability, the VT-1500i can also apply an even broader range of functional, highly wear-resistant coatings.  Like all VT series coating systems this model is designed to help your company differentiate from competitors by improving both the appearance and function of your products.
