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 system is unique as it is capable of using both cathodic arc and optional magnetron sputtering in the same machine. 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. The VT-1500i is designed to help your company differentiate from competitors by improving both the appearance and function of your products.
