• Automation and integration for the modern factory
• Superior coating quality
• Lowest overall manufacturing cost
The PlastiCoater™ and InlineCoater™ equipment offer highly efficient solutions for plastic metallization, allowing integration with plastic injection molding in automated production cells. This integrated production solution provides superior quality control and the lowest overall manufacturing cost for metallized plastic components.
Typical applications are decorative finishing for automotive and other industries, reflectors, mirrors, and electrical components.
PVD metallization integrated with injection molding also allows the plating industry to eliminate the use of hexavalent chromium for plating on plastic. A robust seed layer made by PVD replaces the first steps of the plating process, where acids with hexavalent chromium are used.
