Compact, Higher-Capacity PVD Coating Machine for Small to Medium-Size Operations.


The small VT-1000i™ coating machine is a right-sized PVD and DLC coating system for customers that previously had considered thin-film coating systems to be too complicated 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™ PVD 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 within this small PVD coating machine 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. View all system specs on the main equipment page.
