The AIP®-S series is a batch system using the Arc Ion Plating (AIP®) method. This flexible system can be used for a wide variety of coating applications. The AIP®-S series achieves smooth surfaces while maintaining a high deposition rate.

  1. Droplets, a major defect of Cathodic arc deposition, are successfully minimized by AIP®.
  2. Thick & dense film with extremely smooth surface
  3. High deposition rate by High energy density & High ionization
  4. Multi-layer films & multi process films are possible
