Sputtering Target

Sputtering Targets

We manufacture high-purity, low-spitting sputtering targets in a wide range of materials, sizes, forms and configurations.

solar targets

Large Area Targets

For large-area coverage in coating processes, we manufacture high-performance large-geometry planar and rotatable sputtering targets custom designed to meet your requirements.

Rotary target

Rotatable Targets

Compared to our planar configurations, our cylindrical sputtering targets offer greater erosion zones for large area coating operations.
