PLATIT World Wide Service logo

Our central warehouses in the Czech Republic, Switzerland, the United States and China guarantee short delivery times and short supply routes for spare parts. The service teams at these locations ensure first-level support and can be reached via the hotline.

After a PLATIT coating unit has been sold, that information will be entered into an online service database and the access information will be sent to the customer. In the online service database, customers can find information on spare parts, drawings, the service history and service status of their machine as well as contact information for their technical advisor to make targeted problem-solving possible.

Over the lifetime of a PLATIT PVD coating unit we offer the following service products

  • Cathode exchange
  • Premium Plus Package with additional service options
  • Daily service through hotline support
  • Remote access with augmented reality
  • Process support according to the application
  • Standard and customer-specific training programs on request at the customers’ or PLATIT’ site

Premium Plus Package

We offer our customers a Premium Plus Package with the aim of increasing OEE (overall equipment efficiency)
PLATIT Premium Plus Package

Over the duration of the contract, this includes

  • Execution of preventive maintenance services according to a predetermined schedule
  • Daily support via hotline and internet

The Premium Plus Package guarantees maximum uptime of the coating system, reduced maintenance costs and improved performance at a consistent coating quality.

Cathode exchange

Exchanging cathodes has been made very easy for our customers. To avoid storage costs for them, we take care of transporting the new cathodes and recycling the target material in an environmentally friendly manner. We guarantee the exchange and quality of the target and will provide customers with information on how the cathode exchange can be carried out quickly.
