Our PVD Machine

At American Plating and PVD, we employ the state-of-the-art VT-3000 Low Temperature Arc Vapor Deposition High-Volume Coating System, developed and built in the USA by Vapor Technologies, Inc. This is one of the most versatile and highly efficient PVD-coating systems on the planet, and produces the lowest-cost, highest-quality vacuum-based coatings available.

PVD Performance Coating Source

Our system’s coating source technology is the most advanced of its kind, and can accurately and evenly deposit most electrically conductive materials.

The application of pure, alloyed or reacted-metal coatings will give your product the look and functionality you require. This is because our utilization of the source material is greater than 80 percent versus 25-30 percent for conventional sources.

Computer Controlled for Optimal Performance

We are able to program our computer-controlled system to utilize standard or customized “recipes” for your project, so we are able to meet your requirements and repeat them consistently on all coatings.

This means every piece we coat will have the same uniform and consistent coating.

Expansive Vacuum Chambers

Our sizable vacuum chambers give us the flexibility to coat larger pieces,or alternately to utilize continuous in-line systems for high-capacity production jobs.
