email, Tel. +1 (603) 329-7322

Atkinson Thin Film Systems is a fully equipped sputtering service and private research laboratory located in beautiful Hampstead, New Hampshire. Our company specializes in the design, testing, and production of sputtered thin film coatings. We are capable of servicing contracts ranging from one off tests to light production. Our extensive experience and large equipment inventory allow us to quickly assemble a solution to nearly any need. Over the last ten years ATFSI has built its reputation on cost effectively completing jobs that are especially difficult or unusual, but we are also more than happy to provide our services for even the most mundane coatings.
products:   sputtered thin film coatings

The workhorse of our sputtering systems is our medium size inline sputtering machine. This machine capable of up to 5 different targets, 4 up-sputter 1 down sputter. It also has a RF etch station. The machine is capable of DC or RF sputtering, as well as reactive sputtering of oxides and nitrides. The machine may sputter substrates 14" X 16" if using the RF etch station or 14" X 1 meter if not etching, 1 inch thick. This machine is also capable of employing a mass spectrometer and visible spectrophotometer in the chamber. The way this machine scans the substrate in front of the target closely simulates the movement of a film in front of a target in a roll to roll machine which makes it ideal for simulating coatings on larger production machines. It is also capable of coating wafers up to 350mm dia.

Hohman Plating Hohman Plating & Mfg., Inc. -
- 1401 Abalone Avenue, Dayton OH 45404 USA,

email, Tel. 937 228 2191

Our facility consists of 7 buildings with a total manufacturing area of 90,000 square feet, including 15 electroplating lines, R&D laboratory, a Quality Assurance-Inspection laboratory, a Division of Environmental Safety with a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility, and the Vacuum and Plasma Coatings Division.
products:   Vacuum Coatings

The Vacuum Coatings Division of Hohman Plating provides coating solutions for many different applications, including friction and wear resistant coatings, as well as high performance hard coatings. This division alone has coated well over one million parts for the Aerospace industry, pioneering many coatings that have become industry standards, such as MoS2.
Hohman's many different vacuum coatings are achieved using various Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes. PVD is an environmentally friendly process, which produces very thin, extremely dense and well adherent coatings. More specifically, PVD is an atomic deposition in which a material is vaporized from a solid (or liquid) source and then transferred in vapor form through a vacuum environment to the part’s surface where it condenses.
The various PVD processes performed at Hohman Plating are listed below
- Cathodic Arc Ion Plating: This low temperature, high energy process is used to produce hard wear coatings such as TiN, TiCN, TiC, CrN, and TiAlN.
- Sputtering: This process offers superior adhesion of the coatings and is used by Hohman for applying solid film lubricants such as MoS2, including several advanced versions.

Electron Beam Ion Plating: This process is perhaps the most versatile of all, and is often the solution to many coating challenges. Ion Plating can be used to deposit many coatings and combinations. Examples include Pb, Ag, Au, Ni, Pt, Cu, etc.

email, Tel. +1 (718) 961-6212
products:   vacuum metallizing

Interplex's vacuum metallizing process is used to deposit coatings of aluminum, copper, silicone bronze, aluminum bronze, nickel-chrome, nickel and silver on most plastics and glass. Vacuum metallizing provides decorative properties as well as EMI/RF shielding.
The vacuum metallizing machines are 48" diameter systems capable of coating lengths up to 51" and are equipped with plasma discharge and polymer deposition capabilities. Each carriage can accommodate 6 fixtures each 14" in diameter and 52" long.
The thickness of the vacuum metallizing coatings can range from 0.05 microns to 0.4 microns for a single cycle. Thicker coatings can be applied using multiple cycles. In addition, a thin layer of silicon based polymer can be applied as a topcoat over the deposited metal as a protective layer to withstand some environmental exposures.
Typically, vacuum metallizing is performed for technical products such as automotive lighting, handsets, EMI/RF shields. It can also be found on consumer products such as trophies, flashlights and certain toys.
