During the PVD process, a high-purity, solid layer material, which is made from metal, e.g. titanium, chromium or aluminium, is placed in a vacuum and either dissolved as a result of evaporation caused by heat or atomised by means of bombardment with ions during sputtering. At the same time, a reactive gas such as nitrogen or a gas containing carbon is fed into the vacuum. This gas then bonds with the metal vapour and condenses onto the components as a thin, firmly adhering layer. A uniform layer thickness is achieved by turning the parts at a constant speed over multiple axes. The PVD sputtering process, in particular, enables attractive colour schemes for a visually appealing product surface finish. We are not only able to finish metals using the PVD process on our cutting edge system, we can also give your plastic products an elegant chrome-effect look.
