300R2R R&D pilot production machines
The 300 R2R pilot productiuon machine is a highly capable, modular roll-to-roll pilot line platform for film coating applications. It can be used in areas such as perovskite solar cells and lithium-ion battery electrodes.
The system is designed to assist upscaling from lab trials to real production style runs. It can function both as an R&D system and a production machine making it the ideal bridge between both worlds. The design allows for a variety of roll-to-roll coating and printing experiments. It is applicable to any solution-processable material – organic, perovskite and other related PV technologies, OLED, LEC and many more.
Universities and companies such as ZAE Bayern (Germany), New Castle University (Australia) and INES (France) are among the users of this coating platform.
Roll-to-Roll (R2R) R&D machines
Application example: Coating fuel cell membranes
- Slot die coater with automated transfer of the substrate carrier to the hot air oven.
- Substrate positioning via vacuum or tape
- Automated coating head positioning
- Up to 200 °C oven temperature
- Air flow in the hot air oven can be controlled
- Machine can be modified and extended with different coating techniques, characterization and curing units
- Combination with a laser patterning unit allows to manufacture fully functional electronic devices
Roll-to-Roll (R2R) Single- or Multihead machines
Application example: Printing solar modules in single or multiple passes
- Automated, robot-based machines for R&D and pilot production purposes
- OPV and Perovskite technology
- Manufacturing solar modules using slot die coating and laser patterning
- Capacity: 200 kW per year, capacity can be increased by orders of magnitude via upgrading the machine
- Process technology based on slot die coating and laser patterning, combination with other printing technologies like e. g. screen, gravure, ink jet or flexographic possible.
- Substrates: Glass/FTO or ITO, sheets up to GEN1 (300x400 mm)
- Printed layer stack on the substrate: 1.Charge transport layer, 2.Active absorbing layer, 3.Charge transport layer, 4.(Transparent) top electrode
- Machine concept adjusted to layer stack
- Highly flexible robot based machine for quick development of each process and fully automated pilot production
