PVD COATING APPLICATIONS
Optimize Your Manufacturing Processes with a PVD Coating!
Optimizing Industrial Applications for Over 22 years!
Do the tools you use to make your product wear out? Are you always fighting manufacturing glitches that shut down production? If you answered yes to either of those questions, chances are a PVD coating will improve your manufacturing process and make you more profitable.
PVD coatings are wear resistant and abrasion resistant. If you have an application where a tool wears out and is made of a hardened tool steel, one of our coatings will make it last much longer, improving quality and your profitability. Shown below are some of the more common applications our coatings are used in, but there are many others that aren’t shown. If you have a coating application you’d like to discuss, give us a call, we’re sure we can help make you more profitable too.
