High-Capacity Industrial Coating System

The VT-3000i is the largest VaporTech coating system designed for high throughput or larger parts up to 1.2m (48 inches). Our unique centrally-mounted cathodic arc deposition source ensures consistency and maximum control over coating uniformity and properties. Lower temperatures allow you to coat a wide variety of materials such as steel, brass, zinc, or prepared plastic, giving products made of multiple materials a common finish and appearance. Coatings can be custom-designed to meet your specifications for color or function.

The VT-3000i includes the following key capabilities:


Uniform deposition/efficient coating zone.


Multiple coating technologies in a single system.


Broad range of recipes for color/performance.


Automated controls for simple operation.


Monitoring coating processes locally or remotely.

Large Parts

Coats items up to 48”.
