IHI Hauzer Techno Coating B.V. (Hauzer) is a leading supplier of plasma coating technology and equipment. Job coaters and manufacturers in decorative, automotive and tool markets are provided with different PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) and PACVD (Plasma Assisted Chemical Vapour Deposition) coating solutions worldwide. The batch machines as well as the inline machines are industrial (mass) production machines. Hauzer is also partner to many international universities and research institutes and participates in international research projects.

Hauzer Flexicoat® Equipment: Low Cost of Ownership

Hauzer supplies its Hauzer Flexicoat® equipment in different sizes and configurations. The smallest chamber size is 500 x 500mm, the largest 900 x 1500mm. All machines are flexible in their configuration. Different technologies, such as arc evaporation, several kinds of magnetron sputtering and PACVD, can be combined in one machine and upgrading to new technologies is always possible. The Hauzer Flexicoat® equipment ensures a low cost of ownership, due to fast cycles, efficient fixturing and high yield.


Metalliner® : Flexible Inline Production Platform

The Metalliner® is a flexible inline production platform that can be integrated in a fully automated production plant for an optimum mass production result with short cycle times. The modular design of the machine makes it possible to add process chambers for increased productivity.

CARC+, a New Standard in Tool Coatings

CARC+, abbreviation of Circular Arc Plus, is an industrially viable technology that is especially suitable for shaft tools, hobs, moulds and dies. The technology is fast and reliable and guarantees smooth coatings with excellent tool performance. Due to extremely high target utilization, the cost per batch will be significantly reduced. The technology is available in the Hauzer Flexicoat® 850, new or as an upgrade afterwards.


Technology: DLC Coatings for Automotive and Tool Markets

Mass production of Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coatings stared around 1995 when automotive components in diesel injection systems were coated in order to reduce friction in engines, thus lowering fuel consumption and reducing CO2 emissions. Hauzer joined these developments from the early stages and still supplies the leading technology in this field. In tool markets, DLC coatings are superior for the machining of cast and wrought aluminium and coating of plastic injection moulds.

In February 2019, the REACH Committee of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) decided to give companies using chromium trioxide (CrO3) in electroplating on plastic parts a maximum of 7 years to reassess the availability of safer alternatives or substitute the substance earlier when possible. Chromium trioxide is a carcinogenic substance and has long been a substance of very high concern (SVHC) in Europe. It is still widely used in chrome electroplating. Read more

Article about Cromatipic in the Automotive Tier Supplier 2018 magazine

november 29, 2017

The chrome electroplating process for vehicle parts is tried and tested; it’s durable and can be polished to a high shine but uses potentially harmful chemicals, notably chromium 6. A challenge to its use has arisen in the form of EU environmental legislation. One of the aims of the REACH legislation is to reduce the use of hazardous materials in industrial processes where the health of people or the environment is at risk. As such this will impact on the use of electroplating for chrome parts, so in recent years an alternative has been sought and Hauzer believe they have the solution.
