PVD Coatings

Relying on the experience gained during its thirty-year partnership with Oerlikon Balzers, in 2013 Silmax opened a new factory dedicated to PVD coating (physical vapour deposition) in its premises of Lanzo Torinese, with an INGENIA plant using Oerlikon Balzers technology and a robotised,  ultrasound washing system.

Today, there is also a new PVD INNOVENTA kila unit, which, thanks to its advanced technology with latest-generation software and its high production capacity, reduces coating times, and to meet all needs for PVD coating of tools and for R&D activities.
