From 24 to 27 May 2017, the China Glass 2017 will take place in Beijing. It is one of the most important international meeting points for the glass industry. VON ARDENNE, as one of the leading providers of architectural glass coating equipment, will attend the show with a booth (no. 26 in hall E2).
Apart from presenting its coating equipment, the German high-tech company will focus on a number of innovations. These developments will make a crucial contribution to increasing the productivity of glass coating systems and to reducing the operational expenditure.
One of the components to be presented will be the new High-Utilization Planar Magnetrons. They enable up to 33 percent longer campaign times at a stable layer homogeneity.
The rotatable magnetrons have also been developed further leading to a significantly higher target utilization of 85 percent and an increased productivity. Furthermore, they can be used with thicker targets enabling longer production campaigns.
Another innovation enables an increased vapor utilization during sputter processes with planar targets with the help of adapted sputter geometries. VON ARDENNE offers a reconstruction kit for that purpose.
Finally, the company offers a new audit service topping off its portfolio of solutions to increase the efficiency and performance of glass coating systems.
The mentioned innovations will be available for new coating systems, but they can also be integrated into existing ones as upgrades.
