Midyear of 2017 PVT decided to develop the first own industrial HiPIMS/Magnetron Sputtering system. The solid basis to that were the preceding very successful process validitations.
The introduction of this product will probably take place already in spring 2018.
Thus PVT is worldwide the only company to use large rectangular sources for all its processes: arc evaporation, magnetron sputtering and HiPIMS.
The applications of these are the areas where erosion- and corrosion resistant, wear resistant and tribological (low-friction) high-performance coatings are needed for cutting tools, dies and molds, components and wear parts.
