Upgrades and retrofits for a long life of your unit

Like any high-tech unit, PLATIT’s PVD units are continuously evolving and improving with each generation. With our upgrade programs, you can add new performance dimensions to existing coating units or bring the productivity of your system up to the latest state-of-the-art.

Retrofit measures allow you to technically rejuvenate unit components in a targeted manner and thus significantly extend the overall service life of the unit. Replacing components such as drives, pumps, sensors or controls can boost efficiency, making your PVD unit even more economical to run.

Cathode exchange – Uncomplicated and fast

Cathode exchange

We have made the exchange of cathodes very simple for our customers. To save you storage costs, we take care of the transport of new cathodes and the environmentally friendly recycling of your used targets.

We guarantee the first-class workmanship of the targets and their material quality. Our specialists will be happy to explain to you how the cathodes can be replaced quickly and safely.

By the way: All rotating cathodes in PLATIT’s Pi coating units have a lifetime warranty if the cathodes are changed regularly at one of PLATIT’s cathode exchange centers.

Typical procedure for changing a cathode



You notify us that a cathode needs to be replaced.


New cathode

PLATIT will send you the new cathode within 24 hours.



After you receive the new cathode, return the old one to us.



Your old, used cathode is received by PLATIT.



The used cathode is disassembled, and the target is recycled.



All wear parts are replaced to bring the cathode up to date.



We check the mechanical functions and adjust the magnetic field to install the new target.



After a long-term vacuum test, the cathode is tested under industrial production conditions.

We do not release the cathode for reuse until optimal burn-in is guaranteed.
