High Quality Sputtering Targets for Thin-Film Deposition

Welcome to SCI Engineered Materials, your industry-leading sputtering target manufacturer.

At SCI Engineered Materials, we are passionate about providing high-purity sputtering targets & thin-film deposition materials for laser ablation, cathodic arc sources, e-beam, Magnetron Sputtering Vapor Deposition (MSVD), 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, planar sputtering target tile arrays up to 3 meters, and rotary sputtering targets up to 4 meters. 

Custom Sputtering Targets Tailored to Your Specifications

We are a sputtering target manufacturer equipped to provide standard vacuum deposition materials as well as custom sputtering target stoichiometries & geometries. Our five industrial vacuum hot presses, along with our mills, kilns, and spray dryer combined with over 35 years of experience mean industry leaders looking for consistency, and capability choose us. Our academic and collegiate customers appreciate our ability to produce small-batch research-grade sputtering targets with the same proficiency as our industrial sputtering targets. We even offer sputtering target refurbishment, through our Virgin Powder Repress process, on select platinum group metals (PGMs), and compounds like Indium Tin Oxide (ITO).  

Specialized Quality Control

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.

Industry Leading Indium Bonding

We understand that different sputtering systems require tailored cathode designs, which is why we ensure that our high-purity sputtering targets 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.

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.
