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

Please call for the delivery time
Item Number: VTC-16-PW
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 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.
