Denton Vacuum enables innovation.

Denton Vacuum engineers products for medical and health applications using sputtering, PECVD (plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition) and thermal evaporation that enable users to reliably and economically improve health outcomes through production of biocompatible films and systems for manufacturers of instruments, implants and devices. PECVD engineered diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings can be applied by Denton PECVD systems to extend implant life and to sharpen and enhance the durability of surgical instruments. Denton medical products sputter conformal coatings on 3D medical implants for biocompatibility, wear resistance and color coding, among other applications.

Application within Medical

Partnering with medical industry innovators, Denton Vacuum has designed, engineered and installed biocompatible PVD and PECVD systems used on a wide variety of medical implants and instruments, including those in the medical areas of orthopedics, cardiology and neurology in applications for:

  • Instruments and Tools
  • Cell Attachment Surfaces
  • Medical Imaging
  • Implantable Devices
  • Wear Coatings
  • Color Coding
  • Diamond-Like Carbon Coatings

Systems for the Medical Industry

Our products for medical and health applications use sputtering, PECVD (plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition) and thermal evaporation that enable users to reliably and economically improve health outcomes.

Processes within Medical

PECVD
Titanium nitride, TiAlN/AlTiN (Titanium Aluminum Nitride), CrN (Chrome Nitride) and
TiCN (Titanium Carbo-Nitride) coatings, for example, can be applied by Denton Vacuum PVD and PECVD systems to extend implant life and to sharpen and enhance the durability of surgical instruments. See Denton Vacuum’s research findings on fractal titanium nitride coatings.

Sputtering
Denton medical products sputter conformal coatings on three-D medical implants for biocompatibility, wear resistance and color coding.
