In order to meet the product-specific requirements of WIKUS, we designed a turnkey system with a PVD coating unit operating in a high vacuum as well as a tailor-made single-chamber cleaning system. The saw bands are wound as a coil and are both cleaned and coated with the same product carrier to avoid an additional effort.
The Pi603 is the first PVD coating unit for WIKUS. It was built in 2006 and is still working perfectly today. Our design proved to be very user-friendly. Customers who are not experienced with such technologies, can also operate this unit with ease. Pursuant to the open source principle, we transferred our knowledge to WIKUS. This enables WIKUS to benefit from the advantages of LARC® cathodes and flexibly combine as well as develop its own coatings.
