Rotatory target technology has been widely used in the area of architectural glass and flat panel displays coating manufacturing. The standard manufacturing methods are plasma spraying onto the base tubes, casting and extrusion of the complete assembly.
Comparing with planar targets, rotatory target contains more material and offers a greater utilization, which means longer production runs and reduced downtime of the system, increases the throughput of the coating equipment. Besides, rotatory target allows the use of higher power densities due to the heat build-up being spread evenly over the surface area of the target. As a consequence, an increased deposition speed can be seen along with an improved performance during reactive sputtering.
Stanford Advanced Materials provides the custom-made cylindrical magnetron sputtering targets, mainly Cr, Ag, Al, Si, Sn, Ti, Stainless steel, TiO2, W, Ta, Mo, Nb, Cu and other metal and alloy materials.
