VA INDIGO - Digital Solutions for Glass Coating

With VA IN­DIGO, we will as­sist you in dig­i­tal­iz­ing your work­flows in con­nec­tion with the ma­chi­ne op­er­a­tion - from in­stal­la­tion and train­ing to op­er­a­tion, main­te­nan­ce, trou­ble­shoot­ing as well as ser­vice and sup­port.

The world is get­ting more and more di­gi­tal and the in­dus­try with it – a de­ve­lop­ment that is of­ten re­fer­red to as In­dus­try 4.0.

One as­pect of In­dus­try 4.0 is the di­gi­ta­li­za­ti­on and net­wor­king of ma­chi­nes, lo­gi­stics, pe­ri­phe­ry sys­tems and re­sour­ces ba­sed on collec­ting, ana­ly­zing and trans­fer­ring data. This will en­able the op­ti­mi­za­ti­on of not just one pro­duc­tion step but a com­ple­te va­lue chain - the­re­by fa­ci­li­ta­ting new mo­des of ope­ra­ti­on and new ways of pro­du­cing goods more fle­xi­b­ly. Fur­ther­mo­re, it will open new ways of pro­vi­ding pro­ducts and ser­vices.

Ba­sed on this world­wi­de de­ve­lop­ment, VON AR­DEN­NE will sup­port custo­mers in ful­fil­ling fu­ture re­qui­re­ments such as au­to­no­my, con­nec­ti­vi­ty, pro­duc­ti­vi­ty, pre­dic­ta­bi­li­ty and fle­xi­bi­li­ty – and help you en­ter the next era of pro­duc­tion.

With our ex­pe­ri­ence of more than 60 ye­ars in PVD tech­no­lo­gy and PVD equip­ment ma­nu­fac­tu­ring, we know our ma­chi­nes and com­po­nents from A to Z and how to use the ge­ne­ra­ted data. This know-how in com­bi­na­ti­on with our ex­per­ti­se in en­gi­nee­ring, ma­chi­ne and sys­tem de­sign as well as in­di­vi­du­al ser­vices has led to our new di­gi­tal pro­duct and ser­vice port­fo­lio: VA IN­DI­GO.

GC120VCR Glass Coating System

The VON AR­DENNE GC120VCR is a car­rier-based ver­ti­cal in­line coat­ing sys­tem for the de­po­si­tion of metal and ox­ide thin-film mul­ti­layer sys­tems on flat glass sub­strates or other ma­te­ri­als. The sub­strate trans­port is car­rier-based and the sys­tem fea­tures a car­rier re­turn sys­tem.
As a lead­ing de­vel­oper and man­u­fac­turer of vac­uum coat­ing equip­ment for large-area ap­pli­ca­tions, VON AR­DENNE has in­cor­po­rated its broad knowl­edge and ex­per­tise in PVD tech­nolo­gies into the GC120VCR plat­form. The re­li­a­bil­ity of this sys­tem is well proven in the PV in­dus­try.

VA PROCOS 2 Process Control System

Since 1980, VON AR­DENNE has been in a lead­ing po­si­tion in re­ac­tive sput­ter­ing processes. Fur­ther­more, we have pro­vided and op­ti­mized our process con­trol sys­tem VA PRO­COS for many years.

Our cur­rent VA PRO­COS 2 con­trols the re­ac­tive mag­netron sput­ter­ing of com­pound lay­ers (such as ITO, TiO2, TiN, Al2, O3, AlN, SnO2, SiO2, Si3N4, ZnO, ZrO or Ta2O5) and re­li­ably fixes the work­ing points in the cru­cial tran­si­tion re­gion. Fur­ther­more, the sys­tem con­trols one or more re­ac­tive gas in­lets (e.g. oxyni­trides).

RDM/RDMT Magnetrons

RDM ro­tat­able dual mag­netrons are suit­able for a wide scope of AC or DC processes with a power range from 10 to 180 kilo­watts. They can be equipped with a va­ri­ety of mag­net de­signs and of­fer a fully in­te­grated gas in­let sys­tem for the best process con­trol per­for­mance.

RDMT - T-Se­ries-Mag­netrons: VON AR­DENNE has com­bined the mag­netron sput­ter source tech­nol­ogy with tur­bo­mol­e­c­u­lar pumps to cre­ate a new key com­po­nent class - the T-Se­ries Mag­netrons.

VISS Vertical Glass Coating System

The vertical inline sputter system VISS is an appropriate, modular solution for vertical deposition processes when scaling up from laboratory use to production. The tool is available either as a single end inline or for continuous processing and is uniquely suited for scaling up to substrate sizes of up to 600 mm x 2400 mm.

The substrates are transported by a carrier system, which is tilted vertically by seven degrees. The substrates can be loaded without touching their front side.

About us

Company details

VON AR­DENNE was founded in 1991 as a spin-off of the Man­fred von Ar­denne Re­search In­sti­tute in Dres­den. The tech­no­log­i­cal prin­ci­ples and com­po­nents which are vi­tal to our cur­rent suc­cess had been de­vel­oped and steadily im­proved by this in­sti­tute since 1955. Read more about our company history.
Over 50 years of ex­pe­ri­ence with elec­tron beam processes and more than 40 years of com­pe­tence in mag­netron tech­nol­ogy make VON AR­DENNE a lead­ing provider of glass coat­ing sys­tems and equip­ment for thin-film pho­to­voltaics. This technology competence is used in all our prod­ucts and guar­an­tees that our cus­tomers re­ceive re­li­able sys­tems for their pro­duc­tion.
VON AR­DENNE re­lies on an international network with sub­sidiaries in China, Malaysia, Viet­nam, Japan and the USA, in ad­di­tion to our head­quar­ters in Dres­den, Ger­many.
At VON AR­DENNE, we ad­here strictly to the val­ues which pro­vided the ba­sis for the work of Man­fred von Ar­denne - sci­en­tific metic­u­lous­ness and cu­rios­ity, the con­stant search for in­no­v­a­tive tech­ni­cal so­lu­tions, qual­ity aware­ness, sus­tain­able ac­tiv­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity.
