The Pi603 understands the challenges of coating saw bands and offers an optimal solution. The length of the bands, as well as the fact that they are wound on a coil, could result in different coating thicknesses due to the different circumferential speeds.
The PLATIT Pi603 PVD coating unit avoids this through a special arrangement of the saw bands at a defined angle to the source technology. This ensures a constant coating thickness distribution.
The Pi603 uses the same cathode technology as the Pi411 PLUS. This ensures that standardized spare parts are always available. Furthermore, PVD coating recipes can be developed together with PLATIT on Pi411 PLUS and transferred to Pi603. Without any production downtime at all.
The PLATIT Pi603 coating unit uses the LGD® etching technology (Lateral Glow Discharge) to enable improved coating adhesion. A total of three etching processes are available:
