Coatema Coating Machinery
Coating, printing and laminating plants
The company is focused on these high-tech markets, a comprehensive range of services and a large R&D center for coating, printing and laminating, and is able to offer complete lab-to-fab technologies (from small samples to finished products).
In addition to the classic coating and printing systems, various substrate pre- and post-treatments, dryer technologies, UV networking systems, calenders and nanoimprint processes can also be integrated into the mostly modular designed machinery. All machines can be designed either for clean room and protective gas atmosphere.
The "classic coating/printing system" consists of one unwinding, one or more coating systems, drying, post-treatment and rewinding with the aim of producing functional layers on web-shaped substrates. Coatema offers therefore more than 35 different coating systems, e.g. slot dies, flexogravure printers, rotary screen printing, micro roller, commabar, doctor blade, ultrasonic spray, inkjet, various dryer concepts, which are partly patented (e.g. floating dryers, hot air, sintering lines, special solutions) and various possibilities for pre- and post-treatment, as well as winding technology. The machines are modular. Therefore, the coating system, for example, can be easily and quickly expanded and a different system can be integrated. In addition to standard solutions, many machines are designed to customers’ specifications. One development, for increasing the flexibility of the machine, is the patent-pending Click & Coat concept. The customer can define and select his processes from more than 40 standardized modules, e.g. the laser scribing of ITO- coated PET films.
