The Intevac Vertex MarathonTM system 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 similar to 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. The Marathon has a scalable design and can be configured with all the process technology and sources that have been developed for the VERTEX family of capital equipment systems.
- DiamondClad: An ultra-durable protective coating for display cover glass, this evolution of Intevac’s oDLCTM film offers sapphire-like anti-scratch performance and is now commercially available in Diamond DogTM screen protectors .
- Patterned / Decorative Coatings: With the move to glass for the phone back cover, smartphone manufacturers are looking for highly differentiated decorative coatings. Leveraging its innovative sources ion beam processing, the Vertex Marathon gives its customers access to a truly unique design pallete.
- Anti-reflective coatings: Combining the IBAD and DiamondClad technologies, the Vertex Marathon produces some of the hardest and most scratch-resistant AR coatings for display cover panels.
