1 Series Development Pilot Scale

+ 1 Series Development Pilot Scale

The 1 Series Development Pilot Scale will enable your roll-to-roll product development from proof of principle, through scale-up and optimisation to initial full-scale production.

The testing and technology benefits learned from the Pilot Scale R&D process allows quick and effective scientific advantages into entering quick optimisation of production operations.


Key Features:

  • Web width up to 325mm (narrow web) or 750mm (wide web)
  • Configurable and interchangeable coating modules allowing the widest range of coating & processing techniques in one platform
  • Can be utilised for production.
  • Automatic tension control optimisation for all substrates.
  • Scalable modular cost-effective solutions as products and markets change.
  • Industry leading control system with PLC, SCADA and servo-based web transport system which operates up to 100mpm.
  • Higher web speeds can be accommodated subject to specification.
  • Flexible unwind and rewind options enable in-line coating and lamination with de-interleave and interleave for particularly sensitive layers.
  • Low carbon footprint.
  • High efficiency servo-driven motors and drying to minimise power consumption.
  • Temperature controlled drying.
  • Bi-directional unwinding and winding.

Ancillary Devices:

  • Static elimination
  • Corona treatment
  • Plasma treatment
  • Web Cleaning – Contact type
  • Web cleaning – Non-contact type
