Powerful arc discharges, rapid vaporization of target material, and high-energy ions make cathodic arc deposition both powerful and potentially unstable. Available at a range of current levels up to 400 A, Solvix® arc supplies deliver excellent plasma ionization, ion energy, and throughput — with remarkable power and process control. Solvix supplies add an even greater degree of control over film properties, for remarkably hard, dense, durable, adherent films.
