equipment and vacuum-plasma methods of coating deposition
Task Group "PLASMION"
ION-PLASMA COATING DEPOSITION IN VACUUM:
Advanced equipment, technologies,
and technologies for an ion-plasma coating deposition in vacuum
A task group deals with development of ion-plasma coating deposition
technologies (a vacuum-arc evaporation and magnetron sputtering) and
is engaged in designing and fabrication of appropriate equipment.
The ion-plasma methods are aimed at:
deposition of wear -, corrosion -, erosion - resistant, tribotechnical,
conductive, protective - decorative and other functional coatings onto
articles made of metal, ceramic, glass and polymeric materials.
of the methods:
- deposition of metallic and non-metallic coatings with a good adhesion
- deposition of multilayered coatings;
- deposition of coatings with a nanocrystal structure;
- deposition of coatings onto external and internal surfaces of conventional
and lengthy items;
- deposition of diamond-like coatings.
an increase in life-time of metal-cutting tools (
5 times );
an improvement of erosion-, corrosion-resistance properties
of shafts, rods, rings, valves, plungers, etc. ( 4
6 times );
an increase of erosion and corrosion resistance of
gas / vapor turbine blades ( 2
3 times ).
Energy consumption and ecology :
cylinder- and planar-type vacuum arc evaporators;
cylinder- and planar-type magnetrons;
generators of gas and metallic plasma;
laboratory,research,pilot and specialized ion-plasma
industrial ion-plasma vacuum installations.
The task group has designed industrial ion plasma VI-1000 and VI-1200
installations with vacuum chambers 1000 and 1200 mm in diameter, 1400
and 2000 mm in height respectively. The installations are equipped with
planar and cylinder-type ion plasma evaporators in order to meet different
a development of technical documentation for separate
assemblies and vacuum installations;
a manufacture of assemblies / installations and delivering
author's supervision for mounting, assembling, putting
in operation the installation and during a guarantee period;
training of personnel;
fulfillment of R&D and technological works.
