    Surpass Competitors with In-House PVD Coating

    LONGMONT, CO, July 5, 2018—Manufacturing and the market have changed significantly since VaporTech® began designing and building PVD coating systems more than 20 years ago. These days, industry competition is fierce, and manufacturers must often fight for their customer’s business. For this reason, VaporTech has unveiled its VT-3000i™ system, a new coating machine that helps manufacturers differentiate their products and increase their Return on Investment (ROI) with the latest materials and technologies and a right-sized design for today’s manufacturing needs.

    Custom coatings differentiate, add value to products

    The new VT-3000i system can deposit a wide range of materials using physical vapor deposition (PVD) or plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD), as well as coating temperature-sensitive substrates using its unique low-temperature arc vapor deposition technology (LTAVD®). These coating technologies deposit a wide range of metallic colors, from chrome through black, to gold, brass, nickel or bronze, as well as diamond-like carbon (DLC) and an array of functional coatings. Bringing the system in-house enables manufacturers to use highly skilled VaporTech R&D scientists to create unique coatings that differentiate and add value to products to give them a competitive edge.

    Easier integration into existing manufacturing facilities

    The VT-3000i system features a much smaller footprint and updated design that makes the equipment easier to integrate into manufacturing facilities. The system takes up about 40% less space than its predecessor. The VT-3000i system is designed to eliminate complexities and increase ease of installation, operation, and maintenance. 

    Benefits of in-house coating

    With the VT-3000i system, manufacturers can gain control of the coating process and save considerable time previously spent packaging, sending, and waiting for a third party to coat and return parts. With the system in place, manufacturers can coat whole loads for less than they often spend coating just one part with an outside service provider.

    The best coating choice for many applications

    VaporTech equipment serves manufacturers in a variety of industries including home products, automotive, medical devices, tooling, consumer electronics, firearms, aerospace, and many others. Visit the VaporTech website today for more information about the company’s products.

  • VT-3000i
    The VT-3000i™ PVD coating system helps customers more easily add coating capability to operations. Smaller footprint, easy to install, operate, maintain...

  • as our product developers and engineers listened to our customers, we saw a need to take our proven capabilities—our core coating technologies, fast pumping speed, high loading volume and production throughput—and update and repackage them with some changes based on evolving customer needs.

    1.     Smaller Footprint

    In the past, customers who needed a thin-film coating system had to reserve quite a bit of manufacturing space to install the VT-3000 system. The VT-3000i system has the same size chamber and throughput as the VT-3000 system. However, the updated pumping system in the VT-3000i system doesn’t require the floor pit its predecessor did, and we updated the layout and design of the other system components to take up less floor space. These changes reduce the system footprint by about 40%.

    2.    Simple to Install, Operate, and Maintain

    We’ve always endeavored to offer excellent service and support, and we found additional ways to do even better with this new thin-film coating machine. The VT-3000i system includes several improvements related to ease of installation, operation, maintenance, and service:

    • Improved reliability through elimination or redesign of several complex components.
    • Improved commonality of fittings and feed-throughs.
    • Improved operation and maintenance ergonomics.
    • Improved remote-access capability for troubleshooting and configuration.
    • Updated and simplified controls: fewer gauges and controllers that require calibration.

    These changes improve the reliability of the machine and make it easier to maintain. System installation and annual maintenance activities take less time, meaning less downtime and more time for production.

    3.    Same Great Coatings

    What hasn’t changed are our unique coating capabilities that improve the value of customers’ products. Like the VT-3000 system, the new VT-3000i system can deposit a wide range of materials using physical vapor deposition (PVD) or plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD), as well as coating temperature-sensitive substrates using its unique low-temperature arc vapor deposition technology (LTAVD). These coating technologies deposit a wide range of metallic colors, from chrome through black, to gold, brass, nickel or bronze, as well as diamond-like carbon (DLC) and an array of functional coatings. Our equipment serves manufacturers in a variety of industries including home products, automotive, medical devices, tooling, consumer electronics, firearms, aerospace, and many others.
