Commercial Scale

The HELIOS industrial line offers cost-effective ALD coatings on parts ranging from microns to meters. HELIOS coating systems bring film quality, atomic-level control and conformal performance of ALD to industrial manufacturing, opening up new possibilities and enabling novel applications as protective of functional surface engineered objects. 

HELIOS is designed for efficiency with ‘zero-waste’ processing, substantially lower factory power consumption and small footprint. A patented integrated abatement ensures minimal maintenance and exceeds uptime records of legacy CVD and PVD equipment.
