VON AR­DENNE de­vel­ops and man­u­fac­tures in­dus­trial equip­ment for vac­uum coat­ings on ma­te­ri­als such as glass, wafers, metal strip and poly­mer films. These coat­ings give the sur­faces new func­tional prop­er­ties and can be be­tween one nanome­ter and a few mi­crom­e­ters thin, de­pend­ing on the ap­pli­ca­tion.

Our cus­tomers use these ma­te­ri­als to make high-qual­ity prod­ucts such as ar­chi­tec­tural glass, dis­plays for smart­phones and touch screens, so­lar mod­ules and heat pro­tec­tion foil for au­to­mo­tive glass.

We sup­ply our cus­tomers with tech­no­log­i­cally so­phis­ti­cated vac­uum coat­ing sys­tems, ex­ten­sive ex­per­tise and global ser­vice. The key com­po­nents are de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured by VON AR­DENNE it­self.
