Product Description


Chrome plating is a film surface treatment, which has been commonly used in many industrial sectors, to provide excellent shiny decoration, which prevented corrosion and abrasion.

However, the hexavalent Chrome electroplating (Cr6+) damaged the health of operators and ruined our environment. Therefore, trivalent Chrome electroplating (Cr3+) replaced the Cr6+ plating.

But with higher quality requirements by clients and lower production cost demands by manufactures, an alternative low-cost solution needed to be found, while preventing negative health impacts and damages to our environment.

PVD treatment has been identified as the perfect solution to these issues.

Royal Technology has developed standardized PVD coating equipment, which can be applied with various materials:

  • ABS, ABS + PC, PA, PBT, Brass, Brass alloy, Metal steel, Zinc alloy, Aluminum alloy.
    PVD revolutionized chrome processing in industries such as:
    Automotive (e.g. Interior trims, Logo, etc.)
  • Fashion
  • Consumer electronics
  • Tooling instruments
  • Lighting
  • Packaging
    Bathroom fixtures
  • Home appliance

And in many other industries, parts need protective layers and aesthetic coatings.

    To Royal Technology Team:

    I bought the PVD-machineRTAC-1416. After the start-up and commissioning of the equipment, ceramics, glass and stainless steel were coated. The quality of the coating is excellent.
    To cover Al-Zn alloys products, additional surface preparation of the parts to be coated is necessary. The best option is to pre-coat parts with nickel, and then topcoat the decorative coating. But since there are problems with galvanizing and nickel plating, you can do without it. The seller of this equipment can provide the technology of coating without the use of electroplating.
    The colors are varied and very beautiful, especially on glass and ceramics. It makes no sense to spend money on expensive targets of chromium, instead of them you can use titanium targets, which are five times cheaper, and the resulting color is practically the same.
    The company also provides services for the launch of equipment. At start-up, an interpreter is needed. We used the services of an interpreter who did not have a sufficient level of technical language knowledge. But, in principle, everything was clear, due to the very accessible and user-friendly interface of the software, and a convenient touch screen.
    When buying a PVD-machine you need to have a compressor and a chiller. We were recommended to have a compressor at 9-10 atm., but quite enough 5-6 atm. Also the company provides the necessary spare parts.
    Before buying a PVD-machine, all negotiations were conducted on the Internet. The end result: the PVD-machine is stands and works at my place.
    I want to express special gratitude to the highly skilled manager of the company Miss Zhou Xin, who helped bring the matter to its logical completion.

    Мною была куплена вакуумная установка для нанесения покрытий САС1416. После запуска и введения в эксплуатацию оборудования покрывали керамику, стекло и нержавейку. Качество покрытия превосходное.

    Для покрытия изделий из цинковых и алюминиевых сплавов необходима дополнительная подготовка поверхности покрываемых деталей. Самый лучший вариант, это предварительно покрывать детали никелем, а потом поверх наносить декоративное покрытие. Но т.к. существуют проблемы с гальванизацией и никелированием, можно обойтись и без него. Продавец данного оборудования может предоставить технологию нанесения покрытия без использования гальваники.

    Цвета получаются разнообразные и очень красивые, особенно на стекле и керамике. Нет смысла тратиться на дорогие мишени из хрома, вместо них можно использовать титановые мишени, которые в пять раз дешевле, а получаемый цвет практически не отличается.

    Также компания предоставляет услуги по запуску оборудования. При запуске необходим переводчик. Мы пользовались услугами переводчика, у которого не было достаточного уровня знания технического языка. Но, в принципе, было все понятно, за счет очень доступного и удобного интерфейса программного обеспечения, и удобного сенсорного экрана.

    При покупке машины необходимо иметь компрессор и чиллер. Нам рекомендовали иметь компрессор на 9-10 атм., но вполне достаточно 5-6 атм. Также компанией предоставляются в комплекте необходимые запасные части.

    Перед закупкой машины все переговоры велись по интернету. Конечный результат: машина стоит у нас и работает.

    Хочу выразить особую благодарность высококвалифицированному менеджеру компании мисс Чжоу Синь (Zhou Xin), которая помогла довести дело до логического завершения.

    Також компанія надає послуги із запуску обладнання. При запуску необхідний перекладач. Ми користувалися послугами перекладача, у якого не було достатнього рівня знання технічної мови.
