Vacuum coating machine NovoFlex® 600
Versatile vacuum coating technologies using a single machine
The novoFlex® 600 pilot web coater allows coating of polymer films with different materials in any desired sequence.
The web coater includes various vacuum coating technologies which can be combined with each other in different ways. This versatility means that a wide range of coatings and layer combinations can be created. Versatile vacuum coating technologies using a single machine Customers can also choose from a wide variety of substrates: In addition to polymer films made of PET, polypropylene (PP), and polylactides (PLA), the web coater can also be used to test and coat customer-specific polymer substrates, flexible metals foils and textiles.
The application of barrier layers to packaging films for the food industry is one established area of work. The main benefit is the very high coating rate in order to coat large quantities of film at favorable cost.
The web coater can also be used to apply layers for special applications, for example transparent conducting electrodes and high barrier layers for flexible electronics.
