Precision Optics

Our systems are used to coat optics in many different industries and stages of the product lifecycle. VPT designs and manufactures each system according to the specific needs of the industry or application. For example, VPT coaters are used in companies’ R&D groups, where vastly different problems may be tackled from one day to the next. Customers using a coater in this context would look to VPT for equipment with maximum flexibility. In high-volume production, where a single recipe is repeated over and over, throughput, uptime, and day-to-day process repeatability are the key attributes designed into the VPT system.
