Following the Trans-Atlantic Technology Handshake between SOLAYER GmbH and TECPORT OPTICS, (September 2018), SOLAYER is poised to provide our customers and the entire vacuum coating community with unmatched end-to-end technology solutions and service delivery.
The strong synergy arising from this cooperation, which borders on the complementary nature of their product lines and technologies, ensures a one-stop shop for all things related to vacuum coating.
This mutual agreement will greatly benefit customers in the precision optics industries because of the broad-spectrum product offering.
These offerings cover state of the art Coating Equipment that incorporate Evaporation, Ion Assisted Deposition (IAD), Diamond-like Carbon coating (DLC) as well as leading Magnetron Sputtering solutions.
With tools like the flexible SYMPHONY range that employs different evaporation technologies (high density plasma assisted deposition, thermal resistance evaporation, electron beam evaporation, IAD), the combination of innovative thin film coating and reduced cost provides the required competitive edge all in one ‘box’.
Thin film deposition on plastics substrates are a rarity considering the heating effect resulting from the use of plasma technology. However, TECPORT Optics has succeeded through their innovative Cold Plasma Technology in opening another novelty in coating possibilities. With their POLARIS system, customized polymer coatings may be deposited on plastics at temperatures below 100ᵒC resulting in films with very hard surface as well bonding properties. These films possess great resistance to scratching and damage. The applications from such coated plastics are broad and can only be imagined.
Committed to being a one-stop shop, TECPORT’s The ROCK DLC coating system brings highly transparent sp3 optical coating to such applications that require abrasion and wear resistance.
Completing the technology solution suite sees the employ of SOLAYER’s magnetron sputtering tool – THE AVIOR SERIES . Driven by the need to ensure ultra-precision coating for precision optics and related vacuum coating applications, SOLAYER spared no innovative engineering in providing a tool that is future ready and flexible for various production environments .
It is safe to say that the regions served by this partnership will benefit immeasurably, as they will have access to unrivaled service delivery and technical support.
