Intevac Launches High-Productivity VERTEX Marathon™ System, Enabling Ultra-Durable DiamondClad™ Protective Coatings
“After several years of oDLC evolution, we are very pleased to announce the availability of DiamondClad, our next-generation diamond-like carbon film, offering unprecedented protection for smartphone display cover glass and the emerging field of foldable phones,” commented
The Marathon system is scalable and can be equipped with all the process technology that has been developed for the VERTEX family of tools, and supports protective, anti-reflective, decorative, and patterned coatings at very high substrate throughputs.
About VERTEX Marathon™
VERTEX Marathon combines the best features of both in-line systems and drum coaters, delivering a highly flexible and versatile platform for high-volume manufacturing of optical coatings. The Marathon is modular and expandable like an in-line system, yet enables batch processing and continuous, multiple-pass operation as does a standard drum coater. Utilizing a carrier-based transport system that accommodates various-sized substrates and materials, the system can be configured for multiple applications and processes, or streamlined for single application purposes.
In our Thin-film Equipment business, we are a leader in the design and development of high-productivity, thin-film processing systems. Our production-proven platforms are designed for high-volume manufacturing of substrates with precise thin film properties, such as the hard drive media, display cover panel, and solar photovoltaic markets we serve currently.
In our Photonics business, we are a recognized leading developer of advanced high-sensitivity digital sensors, cameras and systems that primarily serve the defense industry. We are the provider of integrated digital imaging systems for most U.S. military night vision programs.
