New materials and emerging applications can create changing demands for your custom deposition system. We work to anticipate future needs in the design process, but oftentimes, retrofitting and adapting your current PVD system can be a cost effective way to add capacity and capability as you need it.
Our team of experienced engineers and technicians is fueled by creative problem-solving to find the best solution to your unique system demands…before the build, or years after. In fact, we’ve been supporting custom deposition systems in the field for over 20 years.
Hardware upgrades are nearly as infinite, and we’re happy to work through your needs and explore options.
PVD has supported Northwestern University's PLD facility through the design and build of their first system, and upgrades to accommodate a programmable shutter to vary thicknesses of film, and custom targets. PVD is currently working on Northwestern’s next system.
"It’s not a situation where the supplier sells you something and says ‘see ya later,’ but rather ‘let us see if we can make this work better for you.’ PVD isn’t a 'here today for the sale, gone tomorrow for the service' type of company."
