Compact Powder PVD Coater with DC Magnetron Sputtering & Vibration Stage - VTC-16-PW

Please call for the delivery time
Item Number: VTC16PW
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)


VTC-16--PW is a compact powder PVD coater, which consists of 2" water cold magnetron sputtering head and vibration stage. The particles will jump on the vibration stage during the coating and form a core-shell structure. The DC magnetron sputter is suitable for coating for metallic materials. RF power source is optional for non-conductive material or carbon. The coater will be useful for preparing special powder for 3D printing and solid-state electrolyte powders.  
( Upgrade the coater 's color to blue, sample stage as cup shape  since Jan 2020 )

Application Notes

  • Warning: Sputtering head connects to HIGH voltage. The operator must wear gloves during operation
  • Make sure the target, sputtering head, substrate, and heating stage are clean before coating, need to use the sandpaper and alcohol to clean and fresh the Al or Nickel target each time using
  • Note: the powder must dry and disperse well before coating
  • The coater can not be used under Ar glovebox, but N2 gas.  If you would like to use under Ar gas glovebox, must inform us in advance, you have to a certain modification at the extra cost
