ALMA 1000

Plant for coating small components as bulk products

Prototype of a vapor deposition plant for coating small components that are handled as bulk products. It is equipped with:

  • two boat evaporators,,
  • two hollow cathode sources for plasma activation;
  • a unit for agitating and centrifugal positioning of the bulk product in a rotating drum

Typical substrate

  • coating of small substrates, which are handled as bulk products, having typical dimensions 5 × 5 × 5 mm3.

Range of applications

  • technology development and process development
  • feasibility studies
  • sample coatings
