The RS 50 coating system is ideal for small to medium batches of precision components subject to high loads, such as in the aerospace and automotive industries. It handles all carbon-based coatings such as DLC (BALINIT DLC), WC/C (BALINIT C), sputtering (BALINIT CNI) and all combinations of these coatings, making it an excellent alternative to hard chrome plating (which is harmful to the environment and health).

Uniform coating distribution on the substrate, high reproducibility and excellent coating properties are decisive factors in allowing high-quality components to withstand high sliding speeds and contact pressures, high temperatures and extreme loads.

The RS 50 is also designed to be conveniently accessible and easily programmable, offering fully automatic coating.
