Sputtering Targets

DXL offer PVD materials in the form of targets and evaporation materials. In addition to raw targets DXL provides backing plates and bonding services for all targets.

Manufacturing Techniques

Some of the many manufacturing techniques DXL is able to provide in the production of your targets:

Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP)

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a manufacturing process used to reduce the porosity of metals and influence the density of many ceramic materials. This improves the mechanical properties, workability and ceramic density.

The HIP process subjects a component to both elevated temperature and isostatic gas pressure in a high pressure containment vessel. The pressurizing gas most widely used is argon. An inert gas is used, so that the material does not chemically react. The chamber is heated, causing the pressure inside the vessel to increase. Many systems use associated gas pumping to achieve necessary pressure level. Pressure is applied to the material from all directions (hence the term "isostatic").

Electron Beam Melting

This solid freeform fabrication method produces solid metal pieces directly from metal powder with characteristics of the target material. The EBM machine reads data from a 3D CAD model and lays down successive layers of powdered material. In this way it builds up the model. These layers are fused together utilizing a computer controlled electron beam
