The new VaporTech® VTi-Series™ PVD coating machines have been designed based on input from manufacturers like you. VaporTech is now shipping our most flexible, mid-sized hybrid PVD coating machine, the new VT-1500i™ system.
A new hybrid PVD coating machine gives you more coating options
To meet your needs for flexibility and a broader range of both PVD color and functional/tribological coatings, the VT-1500i coating system can be configured with up to 3 deposition sources and 3 PVD deposition technologies. Here are 3 reasons you should consider this new PVD coating machine:
1. It’s a hybrid!
No, it won’t save you fuel but the new VT-1500i system can be configured with up to three different technologies (low-temperature cathodic arc, magnetron sputtering, and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition for DLC), as well as up to three separate coating sources. This hybrid PVD coating machine increases your ability to deposit a broader range of functional and decorative thin-film coatings.
2. You get more options
The VT-1500i offers a broader range of decorative and specialty coatings made possible with its hybrid setup. This includes multi-metal and multi-layer coatings to improve durability and wear. Your products will function and look better than your competitors’.
3. High capacity, small footprint, faster return on investment
The VT-1500i hybrid PVD coating system, with its mid-sized coating chamber, has almost 70% the throughput of our largest industrial coater, the VT-3000i system, but with a footprint only slightly larger than our smaller VT-1000i. The design accommodates 10 parts racks (compared with 6 in the smaller VT-1000i) and can be configured in a lower cost cathodic-arc-only configuration or with one or two magnetron sputter sources. This machine is a great choice for medium-sized operations or those requiring a broader range of coating technologies.
