Successful drupa for Coatema Coating Machinery

May '12
Coatema Coating Machinery GmbH takes one week after the drupa a positive stock. For the first time the company presented itself in Dusseldorf from May 3rd until 16th at the leading exhibition for print and paper as part of the Printed Electronics Pavilion. The number of new contacts and orders exceeded the expectations by far. Hundreds of interest from all around the world visited the booth of Coatema to get the latest information on solutions for printing and coating plants.

The visitors got especially enthusiastic about the wide range of Coatema: from the small lab unit up to the complete production line ranges the product portfolio for producing printed electronics. A good third of all discussion during the drupa where dealing with Coatema's award wining lab unit Smartcoater. Since its market launch in summer 2010 it finds favour with institutes, start-ups as well as with established companies. Especially the high degree of adaptability of the roll-to-roll unit, for instance by the 5-in-1 coating module, speaks in favour of the Smartcoater.

There is no need to purchase additional modules as the Smartcoater is already equipped with the needed systems to produce all layers of a product. The small working width enables cost-effective work as only small amounts of substrates and chemistry is needed.

That Coatema also possesses this expertise also in the big format is verified by therintoCent production line which was inaugurated in Finland at VTT this spring. This line stands out first by its dimensions: 11 m long and 5 m high. As inline process this line offers on two floors all printing and coating steps to produce large area printed electronic devices. This enables a roll-to-roll mass production from lab to production.

The PrintoCent line is equipped with interchangeable printing and coating Coatema units: gravure and reverse gravure printing, rotary screen printing, flexography printing and slot die coating. Additional processes such as hot embossing, plasma treatment, lamination, rotary die cut, hot air drying and UV crosslinking as well as an automatic registration which enables to apply several layers accurately fitted on top of each other are included.

The line is operating with a working width of 300 mm and running with an operation speed in the range of 0,1 up to 30m/min. That printed electronics is no longer a niche market is also shown by the next highlight of the branch which already takes place in June: the LOPE-C in Munich. Coatema will be also present at this exhibition with a booth and will present concrete solutions via live demonstrations to a broad-based audience of industry professionals – above all from user industries.

Coatema Coating Machinery offers mechanical engineering and R&D for coating, printing and laminating plants for R2R and S2S applications. For more than 35 years Coatema has been delivering solutions to a wide range of markets including prepreg, flexible electronics, renewable energy, converting, technical textiles, paper, medical, and membrane casting.
