Explorați 75 de ani de Oerlikon Balzers

Prima acoperire dură PVD de la Balzers pentru scule, BALINIT® A, a fost oficial concepută pe data de 1 septembrie 1978. De atunci, Oerlikon Balzers scrie istorie cu un succes fără precedent, mai întâi ca pioner în domeniul acoperirilor, iar mai apoi ca lider de piață.

Cronologie

Filtru cronologie

Cu susținerea Principelui Franz Joseph al II-lea și a industriașului elvețian Emil Georg Bührle, Profesorul Max Auwärter a înființat Gerätebauanstalt Balzers

Obiectivul a fost acela de a facilita utilizarea la scară industrială a tehnologiei de acoperire cu film subțire în vid, tehnologie puțin cunoscută și cercetată în mică măsură. Din moment ce la acea vreme nu existau instalațiile și echipamentele necesare pentru producția acoperirilor cu film subțire, compania le-a dezvoltat și le-a produs pe plan intern. Primele aplicații de succes au fost acoperirile pentru protecția împotriva razelor soarelui și anti-reflexii pentru lentilele oftalmologice, acoperirile anti-reflexii pentru lentilele de cameră, filtre optice și reflectoare, precum și filme subțiri pentru aplicații electronice.
