    Critical Factors of Physical Vapor Deposition

    Written by: Denton Vacuum, LLC Prior to the coating process, consider all of the factors that play into quality of the film. Physical vapor deposition coating, or PVD coating, is one of the simplest and most commonly used methods for deposition. That being said, the process of PVD coating requires the user to focus on critical aspects that directly affect the quality of the deposited material. Features The process of PVD coating occurs in a high vacuum environment with plasma being activated to reach extreme temperatures. The temperatures that the substrate is coated with reach a ballpark figure of 450 degrees to 1000 degrees. Critical Factors The most critical factor…

    How Deposition Plays a Role in the Food Industry

    Written by: Denton Vacuum, LLC Summary: Learn how the food industry utilizes the process of deposition. In the food packaging industry, plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) are both important applications that are widely used throughout the industry. Two of the most important types of application in food packaging in regards to coating are silicone oxide and amorphous carbon solely based on their properties. PECVD is a process where a thin film is produced on top of a particle. It utilizes plasma to allow for deposition at lower temperatures. The process consists of a substrate, the target, being layered with a film that starts out as…

    Three Types of Advanced Manufacturing

    Written by: Denton Vacuum, LLC Advanced manufacturing allows to create devices and parts that “borrow” the property of one substance and lend it to another. A good example of this borrowing is the screw, which can be made out of plastic and metalized with steel or iron to increase its durability. The precise cooling of materials has led to several manufacturing breakthroughs. Here, we explore three major methods used in a variety of consumer and industrial-grade products. Sputter Deposition Sputtering is an important part of the natural sciences, although you might not believe it at first glance. A sputter coating of a conductive metal is often applied to a scientific…

    What are MEMs?

    Summary: MEMs are an exciting revolution in modern manufacturing. When you turn your smartphone on its side, the technology inside that makes the screen flip to a panoramic view is what’s known as a microelectromechanical systems. MEMs are somewhat different from nanotechnology, technically larger in size, but function very much the same way. Once it become plausible to utilize advanced manufacturing techniques like plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, MEMs became one step closer to becoming reality. How MEMs are Made MEMs are made using a number of techniques depending on what is needed. In bulk, they are bonded to glass plates using a process similar to etching. PECVD is used to…

    How GPU works in Aircrafts

    Written by Start Pac Generally, most starter motors and generators operate on turbine engines that work alongwith 30 volts without causing any damage. The highest amount of amperage draw is felt at the moment when the starter is activated. The amperage figure could climb up to 1000 amps on certain gas turbine start up engines. As the startup continues, requirements in terms of amperage drop down throughout the activation cycle. A battery would need to be in good state by this time in order to minimize a voltage drop as a considerable load is applied during the start up. Usually as a load is applied to a battery, the voltage…
