Balzers Surface Solutions Thin films that make all the difference
Surface treatment of tools and components decisively enhances their behaviour, performance and optics.
Productivity, efficiency or the famous first glance - in day-to-day business, these are decided by just a few thousandths of a millimetre. The full strength of Oerlikon Balzers' high-end surface treatments is especially apparent when process-acceleration is required, difficult materials must be cut, or when high-grade optics are important.
We use different methods to improve tool and component performance or optics:
- PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition)
- PACVD (Plasma-Assisted Chemical Vapour Deposition)
- Heat treatment & Nitriding
Each method is carried out under vacuum conditions, which enables reproducible deposition of thin films with defined compositions and specific characteristics.
More productivity and efficiency with PVD and PACVD-coatings
