The Intevac Vertex™ system implements a modular design concept for multiple film types in a single system. Intevac’s initial coating product for Vertex provides an optically transparent hard protective coating targeting display cover glass typically found on consumer electronic products such as mobile phones, mobile computing devices (tablet computers), wearable electronics and automotive infotainment systems. Typically, these types of displays employ a hardened glass substrate which must be processed in its final dimensional configuration. Capitalizing on its vast experience with small substrate processing from its market leadership position in HDD media coating, Intevac optimized the Vertex PVD system for the mobile display electronics market.
Intevac has a tradition of designing its capital equipment to maximize throughput while minimizing footprint to reduce use of costly factory floor space. The Vertex system carries on with this legacy of product design, having been optimized to vertically sputter at very high throughput for individualized substrates in a very compact footprint. Furthermore, the Vertex system employs Intevac’s industry leading high target utilization technology to minimize material cost and reduce preventive maintenance. All of this innovation drives an extremely low cost of ownership (CoO) and increased profitability for Intevac’s customers.
