We use PVD sputtering, magnetron sputtering to apply coatings. Sputtering works on the principle of dedusting individual coating atoms by bombarding accelerated argon ions and krypton under high vacuum. The degraded atoms then impinge on the surface of the material, where they form new material together with the reaction gas. Because the material is almost atom-atom-bound, it is very homogeneous and without major crystalline defects.
We prepare the coatings on the CemeCon 880 MLT with a pulse source, which allows us to deposit both ordinary layers and oxides even on difficult-to-coat materials. It is possible to deposit coatings at low temperatures (150 ° C) so that the base material (e.g., aluminum, tool steel) is not damaged. The CemeCon MLT is specially designed for coating machine parts, dies, molds and tools, where low-friction surfaces and a very smooth structure are needed.
