Key benefits

Low production costs

Highly efficient use of consumables and optimized aluminum evaporator geometries help to keep your production costs down.

Exceptional quality

The intuitive, state-of-the-art HMI and fully automated process control guarantee high throughput with perfect results.

Shorter cycle times

The powerful vacuum pumping system, highly efficient thermal evaporators and high-rate PECVD sources deliver shorter cycle times.

Highlight features

24/7 production

Robust design for high reliability

Deployed in the automotive industry worldwide, the AluMet has a proven track record in the most demanding 24/7 production environments. All the key components, such as the evaporators and the PECVD stations are designed to ensure a high machine uptime. Serviceable components are easy to access and simple to maintain.

Flexible manufacturing

Versatile pylon system for greater flexibility

The planetary substrate holder system with its seven pylons per door is capable of handling a wide range of substrate types and sizes, to meet a wide range of production scenarios and environments.

Compact system

Minimum floor space required

The AluMet is mounted in a compact and easy-to-handle steel frame with a space-saving footprint of just 23.7 m². This makes it easy to install, and if required, fast and straightforward for you to relocate.

The double-door design allows you to easily load and unload one door independently, while the other is still engaged in the process. The ergonomic design of the pylon holder system also provides fast and easy handling of the pylons when loading and unloading your substrates.

Faster pump-down times and a higher metalization quality result in a shorter cycle time. In fact, the AluMet can deposit a highly reflective aluminum layer, plus a protective top coat, onto a typical car-lamp reflector in 20 to 25 minutes.

Your AluMet can be customized to your precise needs, ensuring that you benefit from a high-quality 3D coating platform specifically designed to meet your product, process, and production parameters.
