Markets and Applications

After twenty years in the business and hundreds of coating systems in the field, VPT has solutions for a broad spectrum of industries. We are, however, most sharply focused on four markets that require precise deposition on a highly reliable and repeatable platform: solar, health care, precision optics and defense.

In Solar, we work with the biggest names in the business. VPT is a leading partner and supplier to some of the largest and most successful solar panel producers in the world. We work closely with a number of global solar companies, providing concept and delivery of complex in-line development and production systems.

In Health Care, we are on the cutting edge of coating applications. From systems that coat stents to make them visible on x-rays, to coatings used in digital X-ray systems that convert X-rays to visible light, VPT has moved from development to production for the world’s leading medical companies.

In Precision Optics, we have the largest market share of any US producer of evaporation-based coating chambers. Our customers tell us that their VPT systems are the workhorse of their coating lab—thanks to their ease of use, versatility, and extreme reliability.

In Defense and Astronomy, we make some of the largest coating systems available, with fielded systems as large as 120 inches wide. Large optics like these—such as the mirrors used in the James Webb space telescope—are very expensive and must be coated uniformly and correctly the first time. That VPT has been selected to manufacture systems like these, where there’s absolutely no room for error, is a testament to VPT quality and reliability.
