We have a large expertise (processes and equipment) in the plasma technologies for surface treatments such as plasma nitriding and thin films deposition by PVD technique. A new technology (Combined Magnetron Sputtering and Ion Implantation – CMSII) has been developed and successfully applied for tungsten coating of carbon based materials for the first wall in the nuclear fusion devices. Specific plasma equipment has been manufactured under our supervision and exported to customers from UK, France, Zimbabwe, etc. The group is certified in accordance with ISO 2001 and ISO 14001 standards.
