Hauzer Techno Coating

CARC Plus

Hauzer developed a new circular arc technology with superior features.

Speed Meets Performance

The new circular arc technology CARC+ developed by Hauzer is fast, reliable and produces very smooth coatings.

  • Fast: cycle time < 4 hours in Hauzer Flexicoat® 850
  • Smooth: Ra down to 0.16 µm  for 2 µm AlTiN
  • Reliable:
    - Arc confinement
    - No maintenance cathode ignition
    - Process reliability due to integrated cathode protection
    - Stable behaviour over wide pressure range
    - Extremely high target utilization

The performance of the coatings is excellent. In different tests by prestigious tool makers, the tools with CARC+ coatings performs better than benchmark tool coatings. A prestigious American tool maker tested 13 different state-of-the-art coatings and found that the TiAlN coating produced with CARC+ technology outperformed all others. You can read more about these tests here.

CARC+ technology is available on the Hauzer Flexicoat® 850 and 1000.
