High-Capacity Coating Machine for Large-Scale Operations

The VT-3000i is the largest VaporTech coating system designed for high throughput or larger parts up to 122 cm (48 in). Our unique centrally-mounted cathodic arc deposition source ensures you get consistency and maximum control over coating uniformity and properties. Lower temperatures allow coating a wide variety of materials such as steel, brass, zinc, or prepared plastic, giving products made of multiple materials a common finish and appearance. VaporTech will custom-design coatings to meet your specifications for color or function.

The VT-3000i is the newest version of our VT-3000 series coaters that have operated successfully in applications around the world for more than 20 years. Improvements include a 40% reduction in footprint, upgraded vacuum pumping system, updated software, and reduced maintenance requirements.

The VT-3000i includes the following key capabilities:


Excellent color uniformity & deposition rates
throughout the chamber.


Multiple coating technologies in a single system.


Even coating deposition rates throughout the chamber.
