VON ARDENNE develops and manufactures advanced coating equipment for the deposition of ultra-thin functional layers on materials such as glass, metal strip, wafers and polymer films. Two key technologies are applied by our equipment: magnetron sputtering, a process during which materials such as metals or oxides are atomized in plasma and then condense as a layer, and electron beam evaporation, a method of vaporizing metals and alloys by bombarding them with electron beams.
The major international manufacturers of crystalline and thin-film solar modules use our highly productive equipment. We are also cooperating closely with them to develop the next generation of modules that will be even more efficient.
We have acquired an excellent process know-how based on more than 300 coating systems we have installed for crystalline solar cells and thin-film solar module providers. This expertise has been incorporated into the development of coating systems for the next generations of high-efficiency solar cells.
VON ARDENNE was founded in 1991 as a spin-off of the former Manfred von Ardenne Research Institute. The company is based in Dresden, with subsidiaries in China, Japan, Malaysia, the USA, India and Vietnam. Manfred von Ardenne’s inventions formed the basis for our work today in the fields of vacuum, plasma and electron beam technology.
Equipment, components and technologies made by VON ARDENNE make an important contribution to the protection of the environment. Our customers use them to produce sustainable products for the generation of renewable energy and the sustainable use of resources.
