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.
