Vacuum Coater (for Hard Coatings on Tools)

There are many different ways to apply metal coating to tool’s surface, among which vacuum coating is the most eco-friendly method. Coating is to tools what clothing is to human beings. A vacuum coated knife lasts 2 to 9 times longer than an uncoated one. A vacuum coated mold provides 5 to 10 times the service life of a bare mold. Not only that, PVD coated tooling products also exhibit higher corrosion and wear resistance.

Materials to Be Deposited

Compared to traditional coating processes, vacuum coating provides a more uniform deposit, improved adhesion, and wear-resistant surface for your tools and parts. Materials that can be coated with this method include TiN, CrN, ZrN, and AlTiN. If you need to coat TiCN onto a part or tool, we can provide a hybrid vacuum coating process that combines PVD with CVD processes.


Offers excellent hardness and non-stick property.


Provides superior strength and prevents sticking caused by cold stamping.


Exhibits outstanding hardness and abrasion resistance, making it the coating of choice for parts in contact with lubricants, coolants and abrasives.


With vacuum coating, it is easy to control the micro-roughness of ZrN deposit to a specified value. Due to that, ZrN coating could be the perfect choice for threading and decorative purposes.


Shows optimal hardness, strength, and resistance to rust and chemical corrosions.

Applications for Vacuum Coater

  1. Precision tool and die (stamping die, cutting die, compression mold, etc.)
  2. Tool bits (drill bits, hardened alloy tools, milling tool bits, etc.)
  3. Automobile (piston, piston ring, alloy wheel hub)

This vacuum coater is widely used to apply metal coating to engine parts, cutting tools, stamping dies, dynamic seals, injection molds, etc.
