Visualize Deposition Rates and Other Unknowns
Tin Model is excited to release V-Grade 5S Pro, our most advanced PVD engineering software to date!
New in V-Grade 5S Pro: deposition rates in all modalities and tooling methods that V-Grade 5 series software can model. You can now predict the deposition rate of a material, among other aspects, before you construct or modify a PVD tool.
V-Grade 5S Pro is constructed on the time-tested platform of V-Grade 5S series products. It is highly reliable, versatile and fast. As Tin Model's most advanced software product, V-Grade 5S Pro has all the engineering features of V-Grade 5S Plus, and a robust Deposition Rate Calculator. It seamlessly computes the deposition rate of any given material in any PVD process that you are investigating. With this new capability, V-Grade 5S Pro is complete in predicting and quantifying the three most important measures of a PVD process, namely:
Deposition rate -- for manufacturing throughput,
Vapor capture -- for cost of manufacturing, and
Thickness uniformity -- for meeting specifications of products.
V-Grade 5S Pro also provides you with a broad range of other information that you need in making engineering decisions, from the early conceptualizing phase to the final optimization, in a PVD development cycle.
With the help of V-Grade 5S Pro you will be able to, in great certainty, answer some of the most difficult questions about a PVD process which may involve:
- Magnetron sputter deposition
- Ion-beam sputter deposition
- Single-, dual- or triple-axis rotation tooling
- Complex-surface substrates
- Rotatory cylindrical magnetron targets
- Arbitrary source configuration
- Arbitrary source movement
- Assistant ion bombardment
- Baffles, including collimators
- Multi-source coating processes
Let your creativity flow and turn your ingenuity to winning PVD processes.
