PVD Coating Systems

Semicore is a manufacturer and worldwide supplier of PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition equipment and Custom Vacuum Systems for the electronics, academics, optical, solar energy, medical, automotive, military and related high technology industries.

Our high-performance production or R&D vacuum sputtering and thin film evaporation systems provide coatings on a variety of materials including plastic films, glass, ceramics, metals and hybrid substrates.

Whether you want to take advantage of our proven industrial solutions for vacuum system automation, process control and supervisory monitoring applications or need to develop some unique new application of your own design you will find Semicore’s staff and facilities to be competent, open-minded and eager to help.

Thin Film Deposition Systems:

Whatever you are looking for in Physical Vapor Deposition PVD coating technology – DC / Pulse DC Magnetron sputtering, RF Magnetron sputtering, Electron Beam Evaporation or Thermal Evaporation Systems – there is probably a more advanced Semicore version that is tested, proven and will give you more for your money.

Custom Vacuum Engineering:

Here at Semicore we welcome unconventional thinking and recognize that standard off-the-shelf solutions are often too limited and/or inflexible to be adapted to new ideas. Bring us a specification or bring us a goal or problem. We are glad to work with you either way. Converting ideas to physical reality is our Custom Vacuum Engineering Department’s job. Please take advantage of our free vacuum engineering evaluation service.

Tooling and Fixturing:

Whenever you need to extend the useful service life and/or enhance the functionality of your current sputtering coater or evaporation system, Semicore’s tooling and fixturing design team provides quick, efficient, service.

Innovative Solutions for Industry:

Countless different products require some form of specialized processing in their development and manufacturing. In many cases, these processes are not predefined or the equipment required does not exist yet. Semicore has carved out a niche of engineering inventive solutions for these needs.

There is more to Semicore than just “standard” models, far more. Over 40% of our business is based on unique and specialized applications. So, you can understand why we say that when there are no resources already available, we create them.

Automation Controls:

Semicore has developed an advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) control package with versatility, user friendliness and ease of maintenance in mind.

Due to its flexibility, the control system can be customized for any process tool application and has been integrated into many thin films production tools used by leading companies in the Semiconductor, Photonics, MEMS and related high technology fields.

Whatever your needs in PVD thin film deposition equipment, engineering and technology, Semicore is here to help you!
