Compact Sheet Coater

The CSC was designed for research in thin-film coating of functional materials: OPV, perovskites, OLED or any other solution processable material.




It is the latest in a large series of laboratory up-scaling equipment designed and manufactured by FOM Technologies used worldwide in advanced material research. With its heated vacuum chuck it allows for film forming in a controlled manner giving the user the ability to set pump speed, coating speed and drying temperature.



The system is fitted with a syringe pump to allow for low volume controlled material distribution. Coupled with the specially designed slot-die heads low material consumption and low materials waste becomes the norm. With the standard fitted 13 mm slot-die head the system operates with a material dead volume of less than 15 microliters. Ideal when experimenting with expensive materials.


Thin film coating

The system is ideally suited to the thin-film coating needs of R&D, for example organic electronics (e.g. fabrication of perovskite or OPV modules) and any advanced functional materials, that may be solution processed. It represents the first step from spin coating towards industrial type processing and provides proof of concept in the researchers up-scaling effort. The system is capable of coating using slot die as standard.
