Sputtering Targets

At SCI Engineered Materials, we are passionate about providing the highest quality ceramic and metal sputtering targets for laser ablation, cathodic arc sources, e-beam and pulsed laser deposition (PDL). Our exceptional in-house forming and machining capabilities enable us to manufacture one-piece targets up to 20 inches in diameter or 14 inches square, tile arrays up to 3 meters, and rotary targets up to 4 meters. Our team of experts welcome custom or exotic ceramic and metal materials, and thanks to our proficiency in manufacturing ceramic powders and using our five vacuum hot presses, we can even turn raw materials into sputtering targets.

We understand that different sputtering systems require tailored cathode designs, which is why we ensure that all materials are machined to your specifications. Although some of our targets do not require conductive bonded assembly, we are proficient in carrying out indium bonding in-house for others. In addition, our specialized quality control department employs state-of-the-art C-Scan systems to identify voids in both rotatable and planar targets. This eliminates any potential issues with your PVD process, ensuring that you receive only the very best quality sputtering targets.

Rotatable Indium Bonding Reclaim

If you have a rotatable indium bonded target assembly, with a target that is at its end of life, we can help you save money on a new indium bond! Indium (In) is an expensive metal. We take your old assembly, de-bond the used target, reclaim the indium, and pass the savings onto you for your new rotatable target assembly!

Please take a look at our Indium Bonding Data Sheet below for further information on our Indium Bonding Technology

Industry Leading Indium Bonding


We are committed to 100% customer satisfaction. To that end, our sales engineers want to work with you to select the appropriate target material, fabrication process, and bonding assembly that ensures the success of your thin film deposition process. Because your process information may be proprietary and the free exchange of information may be the only route to a solution, we routinely enter into non-disclosure agreements to protect both your and our proprietary process information.
