DECOLINE II COMPACT – Enhanced Metallic Layers on 3-Dimensional Parts

SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES offers the second generation of inline coating (Coating = Metalizing = PVD Sputtering) for fully automated handling and coating of 3-dimensional parts. From loading to packaging, the process is fully automated and not one manual step is necessary – at a cycle time of only 0.4 seconds per part. This manufacturing solution is interesting for automotive, consumer goods, sanitary, mobile phones and packaging used in the cosmetics or beverage industry.

The new DECOLINE II COMPACT inline coating system is the next developmental level in vacuum coating and product handling. The DECOLINE II COMPACT distinguishes itself with versatile options in realizing different layer configurations:

  • Brilliant layers on 3-dimensional parts
  • Individual design variety
  • Elimination of batch processes
  • UV-curing for protection lacquer
  • Inline spray coating & metallization
  • Fully automated processing
  • High productivity and flexibility
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Environment-friendly


The different spray coating modules and the vacuum sputtering module of the DECOLINE II COMPACT are interlinked by an innovative flexible inline concept. The DECOLINE II COMPACT distinguishes itself from the traditional batch processes and satisfies with its inline concept all the prerequisites to revolutionize the existing production of 3-dimensional parts. By using high-quality coatings the decorative and functional properties of the coatings are significantly improved.

DECOLINE II COMPACT automates the production process while considerably reducing costs, logistical efforts as well as the personnel intensity and therefore yields a return on investment in a very short period of time.
