MacroTech develops innovative system solutions for the control of vacuum evaporation systems. The control software and hardware components are ideal both for new vacuum evaporation systems as well as for updating existing ones. The flexible software with its modular recipe is dynamically adapted to customers' wishes.
Project based: MacroTech offers the entire control technology from software development to the complete assembly. Service, advice, support and training complete the scope of supply. The software and the complete system are developed in close cooperation with the manufacturers and end-users. Industrial series products make the systems independent of the manufacturer.
