Aerospace

Denton Vacuum enables innovation.

Denton systems provide sputtering, e-beam deposition, and PECVD processes for a wide range of aerospace applications, including solutions for military and commercial optics, device fabrication and packaging. PECVD process technology from Denton supports the deposition of diamond-like carbon (DLC) films for anti-abrasion and optical applications. Denton systems sputter high purity metals, metal oxides and conductive oxides for windows, grids, reticles and other aerospace components. E-beam evaporation systems from Denton deposit metals and metal oxides for UV, IR and visible sensing devices as well as for fire control and focal plane array applications.

Denton Vacuum provides tools that increase the reliability and lifetime of mechanical aerospace components, boosting performance while reducing weight, making use of less expensive materials. Aerospace applications include those that form to provide thermal and chemical barrier coatings to protect surfaces against corrosive environments and surface resistance to scratches.
