xPro – 2500 HiParc

Vacuum Hard Coating System with HiParc*-Technology and PDA III**-Technology

The PVT xPro – 2500 HiParc is the most advanced industrial large size vacuum coating system which includes the newly developed, industrially proven HiParc-Technology with multiple large area arc evaporators.

Design and construction of the system especially meet the requirements for coating cylindrical type shaped or racked tools, such as broaches up to 2.3 m total length, hobs, shaper cutters, shank type tools etc.

It is specifically designed for the deposition of high performance metallurgical coatings, such as titanium nitride (TiN), titanium carbo-nitride (TiC,N) and aluminium titaniumnitride (AlTiN), aluminium chromium nitride (AlCrN), Si-doped coatings (TiSiN, AlTiSiN, AlCrSiN, AlTiCrSiN) and many others.
