PVA TePla is one of the world’s leading system engineering companies. Its core competencies are in the fields of systems for hard-metal sintering and crystal growing as well as the use of plasma systems for surface activation, functionalization, coating, ultra-fine cleaning and etching.
As one of the first commercial PVD coating service providers in North America, Richter Precision Inc. was quick to realize the potential of this versatile coating technology. Through the deposition of advanced PVD films, we are able to help customers to dramatically improve the efficiency and profitability of their tools and manufacturing processes. We employ most major PVD deposition methods: cathodic arc, pulsed arc, filtered arc, ion beam plating, reactive sputtering, magnetron sputtering, HIPIMS, and more.
Decades of designing and building thin film coating and etching tools has enabled Intlvac to develop in-house systems for multiple processes. These include methods such as E-Beam and Thermal Evaporation, DC Magnetron Sputtering, and Plasma-Assisted Reactive Sputtering. Using these techniques, we are able to offer coating services on a wide range of substrate materials and shapes. Unique geometries are no problem as Intlvac can design and create tooling in our machine shop.
We provide roll to roll process solutions by offering the best-in-class vacuum web coating systems and components. From our R2R series vacuum web coating systems to our sputtering magnetron cathodes, we offer a state-of-the-art application coating laboratory where your vacuum web coating process development can occur while waiting to take ownership of your own Intellivation R2R vacuum web coater including scaling a process or product to production. If your web coating process requires a custom design Intellivation provides exceptional value due to our engineering DNA and experienced team for Large area vacuum coating.
PVD is a process where the material is vaporized at a high temperature in a vacuum. When the vapor is added to the surface, it will provide thin solid layers of pure coating to deliver a harder surface to the component. The coating process is environmentally friendly, meets FDA requirements, and is non-toxic.
