From Lab to Fab


Coating on medium scale

Roll-to-Roll plant close to production scale

The Linecoater is a robust pilot coater that makes it possible to run roll-to-roll coating processes on a near manufacturing scale. The standard 3,000 mm drying module can be expanded to any length and the interchangeable coating system can accommodate multiple input possibilities for different substrates.

With the addition of dryer modules the Linecoater pilot plant and can become full production plant. Integrated process control as well as integrated thermal oil heaters makes the system an efficient platform.

Coatema has developed many innovative applications for leading edge technologies in the last few years and the Linecoater is a unique pilot production platform on which to mount them.

Working width: 500 to 1,000 mm
Range of application e.g.: textile, foil and paper
