The PVD Vacuum Hard Chrome coating process has been used in the automotive industries for decades. Based on the standard car wheels and rims sizes range from
13” ~24”, even larger size 27” be used for trucks.
Sputtering Chrome/Aluminum on Aluminum alloy rims is a standard application due to its environmentally friendly process and resistance to pitting or peeling off like traditional water-electroplating. The high abrasion resistance coating forms a durable film that greatly enhances the car rim’s lifetime. For these reasons and ease of use and reliability the PVD hard chrome coating is welcomed by the automotive factories.
With sputtering deposition system, we can generate PVD Black Chrome / PVD Bright Chrome / PVD Neo-Chrome finishing on the surface.
PVD Chrome was originally designed for the aerospace industry and has since become a highly popular finish in the automotive industry.
1. First using a powder coating primer to protect the integrity of the part.
The Chrome sputtering deposition system consists of: vacuum chamber, vacuum pumps, sputtering cathode, Rack and Fixture, heating & cooling, water & gas (distribution), electrical control & operation systems etc.
1.The rotary rack is exclusively designed for car wheel’s coating, to guarantee a high uniformity of film deposition.
2. Benefits: eco-environment, easy to operate, compact foot print, low cost of owner ship, fast substrate exchange.
3. Coating targets: Chrome, Aluminum, Copper, Titanium, Stainless Steel etc.
4. Coatings: high shiny and bright colors, strong adhesion & excellent scratch protection.
1. Powerful pump set for short cycle time and high productivity
2. Plug-in design and fabrication
3. Exclusive planar sputtering cathode for high coatings quality, fast deposition rate,high target utilization is up to 35%,
4. Max. size of wheel: 27″
5. Magnetic fluid sealing method for a stable running.
6. Full automatic coating process- ONE touch operation is available.

The owner Mr. Michael says: ” it is a good coating machine, I run it once a week for 12 hours, good money, Zhou, thank you.
Pawel: " Zhou, Michael is millionair now, he is working with a car wheel manufacturers, he works 2 shifts and said, please no more new business, I am full production."
We wish the best of Michael's business, very exciting to see the machine is earning money for our customers.
