The choice of manufacturing process depends not only on the chemistry of the material to be produced, but also the product’s target goals, resulting coating characteristics and properties, and the application economics (deposition rate vs. product cost). In addition to the processes shown here, Oerlikon Metco may employ other processing steps to achieve the desired end result such as HDH (hydride-dehydride) and chemical purification. We also offer blends of materials in precise ratios that consist of multiple materials produced using any of these manufacturing processes.
Oerlikon Metco’s flexibility in materials manufacturing makes us unique. It is your assurance that we can provide a product that is exactly right for your production process and application goals. We combine this flexibility with rigorous materials development standards that checks and rechecks targets for performance and cost. It is all part of being your materials powerhouse.
