The EXON-1500 is an arc coating system specifically designed for the deposition of high performance metallurgical coatings, such as titanium nitride (TiN), titanium carbonitride (TiC,N) titanium aluminium nitride TiAlN , aluminium titanium nitride AlTiN and other onto a variety of tools made of hardened steel, high speed steel, tungsten carbide and other materials for a temperature range from 150°C up to 500°C.
The system is delivered ready to use with implemented standard recipes. Custom designed recipes are available on request.
6 cathodes each providing up to 400A allows for either to run short cycles or do complex multilayer coatings.
Optionally, the machine is also available with sputter cathodes or a mix of sputter and arc cathodes.
The 900mm diameter and 6 satellites allows the turntable to be heavily loaded and to coat many tools at the same time.
It's intelligent construction and the position encoded motor provides the ability to only do coating on 1,2 or 3 satellites. For light loading this reduces coating time and increases productivity.
The machine runs in fully automated mode through recipes that are included in the machine while also keep the flexibility for doing R&D by running the machine manually. In either mode the hardware security system provides protection for the machine and the users.
