Can PVD coating transform what’s possible with 3D printing?

We’re always testing the boundaries of what’s possible with surface modification. From Injection Molds to semiconductors, we coat products subjected to a range of harsh conditions. One area that presents a wealth of opportunity—where we’re extensively testing and a little bit obsessed—is 3D printing.  Surface modification is proving to be a game-changer for products in need …

An Introduction to Vacuum Coating

Vacuum coatings are used to protect everything from medical tools to aerospace parts. They help objects resist wear, friction, harsh chemicals, and heat so they’ll last longer.  Unlike other protective coatings, thin-film deposition (vacuum) coatings don’t bring unwanted side-effects – Other coating techniques run the risk of knocking a tool out of tolerance or adding …
