PVD Sputter Coatings from CemeCon
HiPIMS - the Future of PVD coating technology
For denser coatings, improved hardness/ toughness and enhanced cutting results - and this with a deposition rate of 2 µm/h.
HiPIMS (High-Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering) is the next evolutionary step in sputter technology. It combines all the advantages of the common coating technologies and methods currently on the market. HiPIMS, deposits like the DC sputtering process smooth, droplet-free and low stress coatings in an almost unlimited variety. HiPIMS is characterised by an outstanding high ionisation of the sputtered metal. Scratch loads up to 130 Newton prove the superb coating adhesion which is directly related to the high ionisation level. ,HiPIMS coatings that are both hard and tough at the same time thanks to the dense and nearly amorphous film structure.. A consistent and homogeneous distribution of coating thickness around three-dimensional objects like the cutting edge of a tool facilitates optimal wear protection.
CemeCon has systematically refined the HiPIMS technology to the point of being ready for industrial coating production. In Terms of technology this means maximum flexibility and highest economic efficiency with a deposition rate of 2µm/h.
