A short explanation of these vacuum coating technologies is given below:
In Hauzer Flexicoat® equipment more plasma coating technologies can be combined in one vacuum coating machine, which makes it easy to produce multi-layer coatings with different plasma coating techniques.
In the Hauzer Metalliner® the technologies can be used for a mass production inline process.
- A metallic coating, arc coating under layer as an adhesion layer, will be applied
- Secondly a tungsten carbide PVD coating layer, will be applied with magnetron sputtering, resulting in increase of the hardness and friction reduction
- A DLC coating as a top layer will be applied, produced with PACVD coating technology to achieve a high hardness. This layer will not flake off, because of a slowly increasing gradient in the hardness
- Upgrading an existing Hauzer system with new PVD coating and PACVD coating technologies is always possible, due to the flexibility of the equipment design.
