Arcjet PECVD system during the coating of steel bands

Atmospheric pressure plasma CVD processes make it possible to coat large areas of parts and semi-finished products. Functional coatings can be applied in in-line processes without the need for very expensive vacuum machines. Thus continuous coating processes with high deposition rates can be designed for temperature sensitive materials such as special steels, lightweight alloys, glasses and plastics. It is also possible to coat slightly curved substrates of varying thicknesses.
