Application: Cost to Manufacture

Tin Model programs can be employed for estimating the cost of manufacturing, even before a production plant is built. The relevant information include: 

1. Vapor capture: the percentage of material vapor captured by the substrates, or substrate carriers. This determines the amount of raw materials needed for producing a certain quantity of end products in the process being considered. 

2. Throughput: with the deposition-rate calculation for a supplied power the throughput of a coating process can be estimated. Please see Determine Throughput

3. Time required for producing the products: it is determined once the throughput is known. 

4. Energy consumption by the vapor source: it is the product of the power required for achieving the throughput and the total deposition time. 

5. The above also suggests the power supply (of the vapor source) requirements for achieving a desired throughput.
