From Lab to Fab


Many processes in one plant

Many processes in one plant without conversion

The Deskcoater was Coatema's first pilot coater 10 years ago and is still a work horse plant. The Deskcoater has a working width of 500 mm that includes processes like coating, laminating and calendaring in a small foot print.

Due to the revolutionary deflection roller in the 3,000 mm dryer the Deskcoater fits easily in smaller labs. The deflection roller in the dryer also allows the operator to see the coating process at the front of the plant and check the finished result of coating at the same time because of the rewinder is also at the front of the coater.

So just one operator can run the entire coating machine.
