PLATIT World Wide Service logo

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

After a PLATIT coating unit is sold, the information is entered into an online service database, and the access data is sent to the customer. In online service database, customers will find information on spare parts, drawings, service history, service status of their machine and contact data of their technical advisor to enable targeted problem solving.

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 customers’ site or at PLATIT

Premium Plus Package

We offer our customers a Premium Plus Package with the aim of increasing the OEE (Overall Equipment Efficiency)

During 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 with constant coating quality.

Cathode exchange

The cathode exchange is made very easy for our customers. To avoid storage costs for you, we take care of the transport of the new cathodes and environmentally friendly recycling of the used target material. We guarantee the exchange and quality of the target as well as inform customers how the cathode exchange can be done quickly.
