Coating and Laminating on a Small Scale: Precision Sheet-to-Sheet and Roll-to-Roll Processing
Research and Development Tools With a Budget in Mind
The Test Solution S2S and R2R are compact, versatile, cost-oriented Coatema tools for single-sheet and roll-to-roll processing. The small piece good machines enable doctor blade and slot die processes for coating.
The Test Solution S2S, with a motor-driven precision granite table and a small, efficient touch panel control system, makes for a very cost-effective, high-quality entry point for coating on DIN A4 size.
The Test Solution R2R is a compact roll-to-roll tool with a working width of 100 mm. It comes standard with a doctor blade and an electrically heated dryer. It can be fitted with a modular slot die and another advanced coating, curing, and laminating system. Standard equipment includes a touch panel control unit. This is the smallest Coatema roll-to-roll coating machine. Details can be provided on a customer-request basis.
Advanced Coating, Curing, and Laminating System Available
Available as a Sheet-to-Sheet or Roll-to-Roll System
Can Be Tested in the Coatema R&D Center
Integrated Siemens LOGO! Controller
Minimal Quantities of Chemicals and Substrate Required
Ultra-Precise Sheet-to-Sheet Piece Good Coating and Printing
Can Print and Coat in a Single Pass
Ultra-Precise Laboratory Machine for Piece Goods
Combines a Slot Die Coater With Various Printing Processes, Such as Gravure or Flexo Printing (This allows complete products to be processed in the display, OLED, or sensor sector without moving the substrate.)
The precision adjustment and positioning of the application systems are servo-motor-driven, which ensures a high level of precision and reproducibility of the test parameters.
In addition to the possibility of creating layers in the nanometer range, the Siemens S7 plant controller enables easy scalability for production processes.
Combination of Coating and Printing in One Plant for Piece Goods
Ideal for the Production of Piece Goods for Displays, OLED, and Sensors
Motor-Driven Gap Adjustment Available as an Option for All Systems
No Movement of Substrate During Product Manufacturing
The Easycoater (third generation) is a discontinuous high-tech coating machine for sheet-to-sheet coating.
The Easycoater is designed to produce high-quality products or samples in DIN A4 up to DIN A0 quickly and reliably. A slot die, doctor blade, and flat screen-printing unit are available, and many additional coating systems can be integrated.
The Easycoater is controlled by a Siemens S7 PLC processor and can create samples or small production quantities of products using various coating and printing methods. The plant is easy to use and offers an electrically heated dryer as standard and optional UV/infrared units.
The Easycoater is fully encapsulated and is available in an EEx design. Source extraction is available in the coating area, and a glove box configuration with an inert atmosphere is also possible.
Both the ultra-precise granite coating table in the vacuum table variant and the modular holder for the doctor blade and slot die can be motorized. The table movement under the coating system and then under the dryer can be defined in advance, enabling the drying cycle to be precisely regulated and repeated. If the motorized coating gap adjustment option is chosen, an adjustment in the 1µ range is possible. High precision, in every function, allows usage in technologies requiring top accuracy and consistency.
The Versatile Roll-to-Roll Laboratory Platform for Printing, Coating, and Laminating
Quick Adjustment of Modular Coating Systems
The Smartcoater is a unique piece of laboratory machinery that can reproduce complex processes in a variable compact form. The Smartcoater is suitable for experienced users and newcomers to coating, printing, and laminating technologies.
With working widths of up to 300 mm, standardized assemblies, and a modular layout, the Smartcoater is a fast, cost-effective laboratory or small pilot production tool.
The Smartcoater can deliver complex products with minimal use of substrates and chemicals and a short setup time.
More than 30 modular coating and printing systems can be quickly and easily mounted. Technologies including inkjet can be exchanged using a Plug&Play system, and any number of 1,000 mm dryer systems can be used. From electrically heated dryers, NIR, and infrared to UV-cross-linked systems, the Smartcoater can be fitted with the systems of your choice.
Both wet and dry lamination can be used, and corona pre-treatment, web cleaning, and systems for web edge control can be integrated.
Precise tension regulation in the single-digit Newton range can be maintained using measuring rollers. Accurate start-up curves allow the use of very thin or tension-sensitive materials.
A wide range of options and equipment possibilities allow our customers to configure their optimum plant configuration.
In a standard version for technology newcomers, the Smartcoater can be fitted with a 5-in-1 coating system.
The Smartcoater, like all Coatema laboratory systems and pilot machines, can be tested at the Coatema R&D center in Dormagen, Germany.
