Metzner Automation of Handling Tasks

Automation system for the coating of small parts

For automatic loading and unloading of coating substrates for CVD and PVD coatings Metzner offers several proven automation solutions. The abbreviations PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) and CVD (chemical vapor deposition) represent different coating processes.

When loading the PVD spears distinguishes between "single-loading" and "back-to-back-loading." Next to the loading of the parts in addition to the parts of the spacer, so-called spacer, loaded onto the spears. In the single-loading is behind every single insert a spacer, when back-to-back-loading, however, two inserts are "back to back" and only after that comes a spacer.

To realize the "back-to-back-loading" in the system a turning station is built. About this the appropriate insert is turned 180 degrees and loaded directly onto the respective spear.

Key Features

  • Loading and unloading of CVD-carrier plates and PVD-spears
  • Pallet-, resp. carrier plate storing in a stack or separated
  • Utilization of different types of pallets and spears
  • Minimized set-up times
