Coating of metal sheets and strips

We are concerned with the large-area vacuum coating of metal sheets and strips at high deposition rates. In addition to the environmental friendliness the advantage of our processes is the almost inexhaustible range of layer materials which far exceeds the materials that can be used for conventional surface modification.

Besides the deposition of almost all metals, alloys and chemical compounds like SiO2, TiO2, TiN, Al2O3 and other chemical compositions can be deposited as thin layers.

With this material variety we can deposit layers and multilayer systems for a manifold of applications.
