AeroTek Modernizes Its IVD Machine Capacity

Continuing its commitment to continuous innovation, AeroTek is proud to announce a significant investment in its Ion Vapour Deposition (IVD) capacity. AeroTek firmly believes that IVD, as a completely environmentally friendly coating, will be in high demand in the future. As one of the global leaders in IVD, AeroTek has heavily invested in adding capacity, updating technology, conducting R&D and upgrading the technician team’s knowledge. AeroTek continues to exceed its customers’ expectations with quick turn arounds on high quality IVD coated components. Expected completion date: June 2022.

In 2021, AeroTek has invested in the following upgrades to our machines:

  • Mechanical, Hydraulic and Diffusion pumps for DPC#1 through DPC#3 replaced.

  • New Polycold machine for DPC#1 and DPC#2 installed.

  • New controllers for DPC#2 and DPC#3 purchased, awaiting installation.

  • Upgraded controller for DPC#1 installed.

  • Existing pneumatic valves and fittings have been updated to use modern electro-hydraulic components.

  • All 3 large IVD machines will be upgraded to use higher efficiency wire feeds and ceramic evaporation “boats” to improve the consistency of the coating process.

  • The 2 large barrel coaters have been rebuilt and are ready for use.
