World Leaders in Process Development, Thin Film Design and Reliable Thin Film Deposition


Advanced Automated Coating Capability

From the UV through the visible to the IR we have a very broad range of thin film coating capability.  LightMachinery uses six chambers each with their own unique capability.  From  our newest plasma assisted reactive magnetron sputtering systems to our trusty our e-beam and thermal systems we decades of experience and technology that we can apply to meet your unique requirements.  Our proprietary technology allows us to control depositions to heroic levels and to create durable coatings that solve real world problems.  Our thin film deposition is truly at the cutting edge technology today.
