Dynavac, a leader in the manufacturer of thin film deposition systems, says that it has entered into an exclusive supply agreement with Winona PVD Coatings of Warsaw, Indiana, to produce Inline Production Systems that support growing demand for its G-Chrome deposition process.

 

This partnership reflects a trend in the automotive industry to produce a high-end chrome wheel finish using a less costly and more environmentally responsible alternative to traditional chrome plating and cladding.

 

“When Winona experienced a rapid demand for PVD-coated wheels, they asked Dynavac to develop a system to convert their batch manufacturing process into a continuous production line,” says Tom Foley, CEO of Dynavac. “Our team stepped up to the challenge, delivering a turnkey solution that processes wheels in record time while upholding Winona’s high standards for appearance and durability.

 

Spanning over 50 feet long, Dynavac’s high-throughput system provides a completely automated, continuous manufacturing process that produces wheels in record time.  The system’s modular design incorporates multiple process stations, proprietary high-duty chamber isolation valves, and an integrated wheel handling system.  Its custom-designed automation system provides precision control of the entire process from start to finish.

 

“This partnership highlights Dynavac’s expertise in developing advanced thin film production systems for high-demand operating environments,”  says Tom Foley, CEO. “We are very pleased to be Winona’s sole supplier of PVD systems and look forward to supporting them as they continue to strengthen their production capabilities.”
