Duralar Technologies introduces its Centurion deposition system designed for cost-efficient deposition of hard and decorative coatings on parts as large as 1 m2 in volume production.

The company says the system can utilize both physical vapor deposition (PVD) and plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) to produce coatings. This enables it to apply the diamond-based Duralar coatings and a range of conventional coatings including CrN, TiN, TiCN and DLC.

Duralar coatings incorporate metal- and diamond-based nanotechnologies designed to offer hardness, wear resistance as well as corrosion and erosion protection. Attributed to their molecular structure, the coatings are said to maintain low internal stress and remain stable at high temperatures.

According to the company, a traditional DLC is deposited an atom or two at a time and takes upwards of eight hours to complete a process containing only 1 micron of DLC, while Duralar claims to deposit high quality DLC at a rate in excess of 2 microns per hour.
