3D Batch Coating Equipment

Mustang offers a complete line of vacuum deposition systems optimized for the unique challenges of depositing thin film materials of a wide range of complex three dimensional substrates. PVD is increasingly used as an alternative for traditional electroplated processes to achieve both decorative and functional coatings.

We focus on highly robust manufacturing solutions for the thin film vacuum deposition industry. Our design and manufacturing philosophy at all times drives towards higher uptime and fast production cycles to increase customer manufacturing value and capacity.

Deposition options

Each of the Mustang systems can be configured with virtually any deposition method or multiple deposition sources.

  • Sputter – Planar Cathodes, Rotatable Cathodes, Cathodic Arc, Balanced or Unbalanced Magnetron Sputtering,
  • Thermal Resistance Evaporation – Filament or Continuous Feed Evaporation
  • Power Configurations – DC, Pulsed DC, HIPIMS AC, RF
  • PECVD – Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition

Mustang Vacuum Systems has developed and patented a range of deposition sources only available as part of our complete systems.  In addition we offer standard commercially available depositions sources from leading vendors around the world.  Mustang team evaluates with customers the available solutions to optimize each system, achieving the highest productivity and the most value for our customers.
