Innovative Partial Processing Scaling Next-gen Functionalities of Glass

Our cost-efficient, sustainable solutions allow users to configure numerous functions to control the glass to their convenience or environment. This offers glass processors huge opportunities to generate added value in already very competitive areas in glass industry. Read the full text here website version: Interview with Jukka in the Applied Technology Review magazine “Our patented technology uses multiple source materials in one go. We provide multiple coatings for different functionalities of the glass.”

Rethinking of sputtering process – partial coating technology

Abstract  Coatings are an emerging technology for the fast-growing glass market. Various thin film deposition technologies have been used for decades in glass processing industry to improve the properties of glass or to add new functionalities.   This paper aims to rethink the process to enable an easier, cheaper and more feasible method to process partial coatings on large substrates, which in turn allows various new innovative products for the smart glass market in the construction, transportation, and power generation industries.    […]

Different processes for different purposes

Is the method suitable only for the sputtering process? Initially, the partial coating tool and method were designed to form conductive patterns on a surface of substrate plate by a sputtering process. It is possible to further develop the tool to manufacture many different processes for different purposes. That is why there is no one-size-fits-all partial coating tool as the configuration depends on the performance, desired application and production requirements, which are unique. The important aspect in this process is […]

Volframi´s targeted glass processing device

Unprecedented flexibility in producing functional glass panes with targeted processing There is an increasing need to bring functionalities on glass surfaces in the construction, transportation and power generation industries. Thin film coatings are an emerging way to improve properties or add new functionalities in the glass processing industry. However, the pace of innovation is being held back by the demanding requirements in glass processing, including large facilities to house big, expensive machinery for each of the different processes. Introducing for […]
