Increased productivity and reduced manufacturing costs; higher performance and less fuel consumption for components: continuous development of coating materials by Oerlikon Balzers opens up an ever growing number of new applications and has driven many design and manufacturing innovations.
Exterior decorative chrome looking plastic parts
Stylish colouring for metal and metalized plastic components with ePD technology. Highly resistant to scratches and abrasive wear. Guaranteed compliance with the strictest safety requirements and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional chrome plating processes.Automotive Exterior Deco
ESP / brake systems
Thinfilm coatings and heat treatment solutions enhance the service life of ESP and brake system components.Components
In most diesel and gasoline injection systems is a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coated part. In order to meet standards for environment-friendly car, the injection pressure increases constantly. This is only possible with coated mechanical parts.Components
The increased use of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) in Automotive structure parts requires even stronger surface solutions for forming tools to ensure high quality and productivity.Metal Forming
Thinfilm coatings and heat treatment solutions enhance the performance and improve the reliability of differential gears.Components
Exterior shell molds
Hard, wear resistant and high quality mold surfaces are key to efficiently press car doors and panels. PPD technology is an environmentally friendly alternative to hard-chrome plating.Metal Forming
Heat treatment solutions for suspension parts like ball pins and pinion shafts protect against wear, corrosion and erosion.Cutting
