Our competencies

Our competencies Oerlikon Balzers is setting the pace of the industry for hard, wear protective coatings. From its beginning in 1978 until today we have launched many leading products, provided new services to our customers and enabled our customers to boost their productivity and come up with innovative solution for their customers. In order to serve our customers around the globe we have build up a unique global network of coating centres.

As a pioneer and market leader in the field of wear-protection coatings, Oerlikon Balzers can rely on extensive know-how accrued from its global activities.
Whether the issue is where to profitably deploy BALINIT® coatings or how you can optimize your tools and precision components to obtain the greatest benefit from the coating, whether you need to specify the correct preliminary treatment and type of coating or want to develop application-specific solutions, Oerlikon Balzers will always provide competent advice.

Lighter construction, ever increasing performance with ever smaller dimensions, more environmentally friendly concepts for operation and maintenance: increasing demands on systems impose greater requirements on the components and tools. BALINIT® coatings can be suited to the particular application and open the way to completely new standards of performance.

At workshops and seminars, Oerlikon Balzers pursues a policy of ongoing technology transfer, giving customers access to know-how gained worldwide.

The vacuum processes developed by Oerlikon Balzers not only generate coatings with unexcelled wear protection but are also environmentally friendlier than other surface treatment processes.
