White Papers

While white paper may not seem interesting, Plasma Process Group has some white paper with valuable text on it! Take a look at our Learning Center area where we have an array of white papers covering some of the research we’ve done regarding IBAD coatings and processes. All research presented in these white papers was done on our in-house Deposition System, which is, by the way, available for your use as an Applications Laboratory.

Getting the Most from your Gear

In a coating facility, nothing hurts more than having a system down. Thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars per day can be lost when a system is not working. It is therefore critical that these systems be kept in excellent condition as much as possible. While Plasma Process Group provides services to keep your system running at peak performance, we also understand that sometimes it doesn’t make sense to send us your equipment for maintenance.

As such, we have put together a number of different pages on our website regarding best maintenance practices, pitfalls, and tips & tricks to keeping your equipment in good shape.
Take a look through our maintenance notes and see if you could be doing something to help keep your systems running.

We have maintenance information and notes, performance standards, and refurbishment hints for almost all parts of your ion source package.  We are continuously adding more to the available information on our website, so check in often. You will find useful training videos in our ‘Resources’ section. The videos do require authorized access which is free when you sign up.
