architeCtural Glass - key components
VON ARDENNE manufactures all key components for its equipment in-house. As early as in 1972, the first glass coater for heat insulating architectural glass in formats of 1 m x 2 m was developed and put into operation as prototype. Back then, the coating technology was still based on vacuum evaporation of metals and dielectric substances. This technology was soon to be replaced by large-area magnetron sputtering. Right from the start, the magnetron sputter sources required for this technology have been developed and manufactured at VON ARDENNE. It is on these grounds that we bring in several decades of understanding and a wide knowledge and experience of all process-related topics.
