Thin film technologies are our passion

With our vacuum coating systems, ultra-thin films featuring unique characteristics can be produced on a wide variety of materials under vacuum. For example, they make lenses scratch-resistant, protect tool surfaces against wear or ensure that a smartphone can be operated with the fingertips.

We are a technology partner with research facilities and companies, particularly in the areas of semiconductors and microelectronics, photovoltaics and solar thermal energy, architectural glass, optics and sensor technology.

The three business areas of FHR

FHR Anlagenbau GmbH offers its customers various products and services in the field of thin film technology. We support our business on three pillars. The first and major pillar is coating system manufacturing. Our systems for applying, modifying and removing thin layers are used in the glass industry, automotive part manufacturing and jewellery industry as well as in organic electronics and the "classic" semiconductor industry. Our customers can choose between products from one of our small-scale series or customized coating systems. If a customer orders a customized coating system, it is planned, designed, manufactured and assembled specifically and according to their wishes and requirements, and then put into operation on their site. Engineers, technicians, designers (mechanical and electrical), procurement team, logistics specialists, mechanics and electricians work together closely in the process.

After delivery, our service technicians and service engineers continue to look after the coating systems. For example, they look after the maintenance, upgrades and repairs. Thus, service is our second pillar.

To complete the package, we also provide our customers with sputtering targets and support them in developing their coating system. In order to perform this versatile list of tasks, we benefit from our experienced team members with different backgrounds.
