Systems Design and Engineering
In theory, all CVD systems are similar and have common core components. However, over 35 years we have found the practical implementation of these systems to bring a wide range of challenges. According to the system size, materials used and the required product, the practical implementation of high-quality systems has led to a wide range of engineering solutions.
ATL develops, designs & builds all types of CVD system. These range in size from 50mm diameter experimental tube furnaces to production furnaces 2m in diameter. ATL has partners around the world with whom it builds systems. The longest standing partner, IHI Bernex, are a worldwide coating specialist company with its HQ in Olten, Switzerland.
ATL specialises in production CVD systems in 2 main areas:
1. High Temperature, low pressure (HT-LP) systems for production of ceramic coatings and ceramic matrix composite materials (CMCs).
2. IVA & CVA branded systems for aluminising of nickel superalloy turbine components.
