Tribo 550

System Summary
Tribo 550 series was specifically developed for the fast paced multiple coating job or in-house coating center where speed of process change over is key to higher utilizations. With up to 6 source positions high value small batch complex multi layer or combinatorial process are simplified. The Tribo series is flexible and highly configurable and upgradeable to cover the full range of standard tribological al coatings.
