Wilmert De Bosscher Wins Prestigious Industry Award

Naples, FL USA – October 28, 2015 – Wilmert De Bosscher, Chief Technology Officer of Soleras Advanced Coatings, won the John Matteucci Award for Technical Excellence in Vacuum Web Coating presented at the 2015 AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling Conference USA / FlexPackCon.

The Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators and the Society of Plastics Engineers recognized De Bosscher’s paper “New Rotatable Magnetrons and Target Materials Enabling Higher Performance Sputter Coatings” for its “breadth of subject, technical content, presentation style and future impact on technology or the marketplace.”

“It was a great honor for Wilmert to receive this award as it is one of the highest accolades in the coating world,” said Jeff Edel, Soleras’ CEO. “Soleras Advanced Coatings is dedicated to advancing coating technology and it’s exciting to see this recognized by AIMCAL.”

De Bosscher holds a PhD in Solid State Physics and Plasma Physics from Ghent University and has been active in the vacuum coating industry for more than 30 years. He has been instrumental in the introduction of rotatable magnetron sputtering technology into the glass coating industry.

A result of Soleras’ focus on innovations to advance sputter coating technology is the development of a revolutionary online adjustable magnet bar that allows, for the first time, computer-controlled tuning of the magnetic field in a coater to provide for optimal film uniformity. The tuning can be performed while the coater continues to sputter and remains fully operational.
