With the Swing CathodeTM end block, the magnet pack swings in a programmable rotary axis that is independent of the rotating target tube, making it an ideal system for display or 3D part coating. The Swing CathodeTM uses the same patented technology as our other end blocks to deliver outstanding value, performance and reliability in a compact package. For more information, view the application paper.
