Coatema Smartcoater

5-in-1 Roll-to-Roll Coating

Quick adaption of various appliation systems

Most R2R lab units available today have the inherent problems of a relatively wide working width and a high through put speed. That’s where the Coatema Smartcoater fills the gap in the market.

It’s a versatile development tool for production processes on a small scale with working widths from 100 mm to 300 mm and a wide range of coating, printing and laminating applications and productions speeds.

Sophisticated products can be produced on the Smartcoater with a minimum use of substrate and chemistry. To reduce the setup time during test runs the 5-in-1 coating module has been developed. This combined solution is unique on the market.

Smartcoater proof of concept can be tested in Coatema’s R&D Centre located in Germany.
