Minimum Cycle Times
for Optimum Conditions*


• Shank tools (2 µm): Ø 10 x 70 mm, 1056 pcs: 7 h
• Inserts (3 µm): Ø 20 x 6 mm, 6720 pcs: 7.5 h
• Hobs (4 µm): Ø 80 x 180 mm, 48 pcs: 8 h
*: The cycle times can be achieved under the following conditions:

• solid carbide tools (no outgassing necessary)
• high quality cleaning before the coating process (short etching)
• continuous operation (pre-heated chamber)
• 5-cathode processes
• use of fast cooling (e.g. with helium, opening the chamber at 200°C)
• 3 batches / day

High Capacity Coating Unit

• 5 cathodes can run simultaneously
• 3x LARC® LAteral Rotating Cathodes
- Main cathodes: Ti, Al, AlSi+, Cr, TiSi
• 2x planar ARC® Cathodes
- Main cathodes: AlCr, AlTi, Ti
• Deposition of TripleCoatings3® and QuadCoatings4®
• Up to 3 batches / dayeven with 3 different coatings

High Loadability


• Robust and easy change of loads

Optimal Adhesion due to


• VIRTUAL SHUTTER®
• TUBE SHUTTER®
• LARC GD®
• Planar shutters for the planar cathodes

Main Application Fields

• Molds and dies with small and large dimensions
(for forging, fine blanking, stamping, bending, etc.)
• Cutting tools especially with larger dimensions
(saw blades, hobs, broaches)
• Job coating services
DLC Coating Units

DLC Coating Units

Most important Features :

Combined PVD & PECVD process - to deposit very smooth coatings

Special Si containing gas line - controlled by additional Mass Flow Controller

Silicon increases heat resistance
Silicon decreases internal stress of the coating
Silicon improves adhesion -> thick DLC coatings are possible
BIAS supply 350 kHz - to enable deposition of non-conductive layers.

Special heaters with dust filter

grids in front of the heaters
to avoid contamination of the substrates by dust released from the heaters
VIRTUAL SHUTTER® to clean the target to the back before deposition.

Mechanical TUBE SHUTTERS® to protect targets

against contamination by acetylene
against being coated when idle
