What are the characteristics of the multi-arc ion coating machine?
Multi-arc ion coating machine is a kind of ion coating equipment with multiple arc evaporation sources as the core, usually called multi-arc coating, arc coating, arc coating, etc. Compared with other coating processes, it has the following characteristics:
1. The overall machine is simple, the equipment production efficiency is high, the working cycle is short, and it is suitable for mass industrial production.
2. Larger coating space. The arc evaporation source is solid and can be flexibly placed, so the workpiece is easier to install and replace, and no additional heater is needed.
3. Wide process range. It is suitable for reactive plating and ion plating under higher vacuum or lower ambient temperature (200C).
4. Possess excellent membrane performance. The bombardment heating, cleaning and deposition of the workpiece are completed by ionized metal plasma bombardment, achieving "one arc and three functions", and the film structure is dense, and the film layer and the plated part are firmly combined.
The arc evaporation source of the multi-arc ion coating machine has a wide range of applications, which can be used for both counter-ion plating and metal structural materials and alloy materials. And because ion plating has the characteristics of fast deposition speed, wide application of plating materials, good adhesion and adhesion of the plating, and high film density, its application is becoming more and more widely used in the future, and it may gradually replace the existence of wet plating in the future. At present, it is involved in many industries such as electronics, chemical industry, light industry, machinery, national defense, mining, metallurgy and so on.
