SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Announces Sale of POLYCOATER Metallizing System to Leading Italian Packaging Specialist
Kahl am Main, 31 January 2024 – SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES, a renowned pioneer in vacuum coating technology, is delighted to announce another successful sale of its cutting-edge POLYCOATER vacuum coating machine. The global embrace of sustainable and cost-effective vacuum inline coating processes continues to expand, with the recent purchase by a prominent Italian packaging powerhouse based in Bergamo, Italy.
Mr. Stefano Rotella, representing Albéa Cosmetics Italy Srl, Bottanuco BG, Italy, shares his excitement: “In our quest for the optimal solution to enhance the quality of our products, we sought a machine and process that could consistently deliver high-quality surfaces. The POLYCOATER’s versatility is exceptional, offering us the ability to refine a diverse range of products.”
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES’ innovative coating processes have gained recognition for their environmentally friendly approach compared to traditional electroplating methods. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, commented on this achievement: “This additional order underscores our positive positioning in the market with innovative products, signaling strong customer acceptance of our new solutions. With our POLYCOATER, we empower both economically and ecologically conscious chrome (VI)-free coatings for various applications, not only in the cosmetics industry but also within supplier companies of the consumer industry, where it’s used for components with chrome optics such as pushbuttons and levers for circuits.”
The POLYCOATER system by SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES is designed as an inline machine, functioning on the principles of vacuum cathode sputtering (Physical Vapor Deposition = PVD). Vacuum sputtering offers numerous inherent advantages. In comparison to traditional batch production, this solution automates the manufacturing process and significantly reduces production costs through the shortened cycle times of inline production. To ensure impeccable coating from all angles, components are rotated within a vacuum chamber.
