Sputtering Technology at a Glance

Whether in cosmetics or automotive – metallic quality surfaces are needed more than ever in the decorative sector. However, the coating (sputtering) of sensitive layers is usually an expensive step. A new fully automated inline sputtering system with the brand name POLYCOATER is being successfully introduced to resign products and parts for high end materials.

Looking ahead Industry 4.0 and human responsibility the inline sputtering system is considering these important subjects with unique and innovative on-board features. This makes the POLYCOATER inline system economic because the operations have no contact to hazardous and harmful materials.

SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES offers with the POLYCOATER the second generation of inline coating solutions for fully automated handling and coating of 3-dimensional parts. From loading to packaging, the process is fully automated at a cycle time of only 6 seconds per carrier. This manufacturing solution is interesting for automotive, consumer goods, sanitary parts, mobile phones and packaging used in the cosmetics or beverage industry.

POLYCOATER Static Sputtering Systems

The POLYCOATER is an inline vacuum sputtering production system for the fully automatic coating of 3-dimensional plastic parts. The sputtering module can be interlinked with different innovative handling concepts, which provide the possibility of incorporation of additional production modules (e.g. pretreatment lacquering module, robot handling systems). The POLYCOATER system is designed as a system for industrial production use. The system can be integrated into the existing production flow. An exchange handling system is loading new parts and is unloading the metallized parts to an interface position. The POLYCOATER is the result of the combination of proven coating technologies, high performance expertise and unique experience bundled with a revolutionary concept for the application of 3-dimensional coating onto parts. Not only decorative, but also functional layers could be applied. Possible approaches are antibacterial coatings, EMV-shielding, electrically conductive layer (e.g. on electroplating components before the process) or antennas.

Each electrically conductive and nonmagnetic metal and its alloys can be used as a metallic layer. This is a clear unique selling point, compared to batch processes, in which the selection of possible coating materials is much more limited. The POLYCOATER offers a reproducible layer uniformity and high deposition rates with highest coating quality and a high uptime through to permanent sputtering process control. The cycle time per carrier is down to 6 seconds with up to 18 parts on one carrier.
