Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) is a thin layer deposition process by which ultra-thin and homogeneous material layers can be applied to a wide variety of materials. The PICOSUN® P-300B ALD system is especially used in the field of semiconductor industry as well as in batch processing of coatings of various 3D objects such as machine parts, coins, glass or metal sheets, watch parts and jewelry, lenses, optics and medical devices.

The ALD system was specially developed for use in noble metal industry and is equipped with industrial robots to enable fully automatic, unmanned operation and handling of heavy coin carriers. The Austrian Mint is currently using its PICOSUN ™ ALD system for the Al2O3 protective coating of metal objects.
