Venture Technology offers a range of methods for producing patterned or continuous thin films on rigid and flexible substrates. We are dedicated to supporting the research and development community with rapidly adaptable equipment suitable for research and pilot production. Venture Technology will provide complete parts, or deposit high performance thin films on substrates that you provide. We work closely with you to develop prototypes or coatings for custom applications. Most of the thin films we develop are designed and manufactured to specific customer specifications.
