GRS-V: Rotatable Magnetron // Gencoa

GRS-V: Rotatable Magnetron

GRS-V is a vertically-mounted rotatable magnetron by Gencoa, a recent addition to the Gencoa Rotatable System product range. The GRS-V features high power capacity and water flow, excellent end-block vacuum integrity and has a water drain feature for easy target change within the chamber.

Its unique design addresses the key points in reliable sputter process delivery for high volume applications. The GRS-V end-block and magnetic arrays are designed to reduce the cost of ownership for the decorative and functional coating environments.

The GRS-V is a purpose designed vertical source and contains the key feature of motor or manual adjustment of the race track angular position. The GRS-V is aimed at display coaters with in-line or static glass, also batch coaters for decorative and hard coating and high power metallizing of plastic parts.
