EASY TO USE

The FOM nanaRC is the latest in our line of high quality Slot Die coating machines. The FOM nanoRC is a lightweight, cost efficient, easy to use, precision instrument for testing Slot Die coating of solution-processible material onto flexible substrates.

REPLACING SPIN COATING

Based on many years of research in functional organic materials, including feedback from our clients worldwide, the FOM nanoRC has been designed to mimic the coating process of large scale roll-to-roll machines. The FOM nanoRC enables our clients to produce hundreds of highly complex samples in matter of hours that can be reproduced at larger scales while using only a fraction of the material required for the same output produced by a spin coater.

COST EFFICIENT

It provides reliable direct proof of scalability of any coatings conducted but without the high material consumption and associated costs or upstart time, making the FOM nanoRC a much more cost efficient and reliable tool than current alternatives.

DESIGNED FOR EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH

The FOM moduloR2C addresses the challenges associated with roll-to roll equipment in R&D environments. Industrial roll-to-roll equipment often lacks the necessary freedom to experiment, adapt and data collect as is common in research.

EASY OPERATION

To accommodate the flow of the research process the FOM moduloR2C provides a flexible system that allows facile experimental set-up, data collection and operation.

MODULAR BUILT

The modular built FOM moduloR2C is fitted with all-around web access for easy maintenance and constant monitoring of the printed web. Furthermore, the FOM moduloR2C enables custom configuration and positioning of the coating, printing and drying units ideal for R&D. Upon request, the FOM moduloR2C is Atex-compatible with certification.

DIGITAL CONTROL AND DATA COLLECTION

The coater is based on a digitally controlled platform and provides process control and complete process data logging with export functions to enable researchers to analyse this data.

DATA MANAGEMENT

Automated documentation is key to handle large data volumes. The complete coating conditions are automatically logged by the control software and can also be printed alongside the coated area by a synchronised barcode printer/reader.

COATING & PRINTING METHODS

The FOM moduloR2C facilitates the integration of multiple coating and printing methods into the machine frame, for example Slot Die coating and flexographic, inkjet or rotary screen printing. In principal, any deposition method can be integrated. Designed to handle a wide range of substrates it is currently running with carbon fiber tows, multiple plastics, paper, metal foils and flexible glass.

SOFTWARE

The integrated, extensive and self-diagnostic monitoring system with Ethernet access provides easy service support and offers remote service as well as maintenance supervision.

INBUILT INDUSTRIAL RECONFIGURATION

The FOM moduloR2C is capable of industrial production speed. Based on a new PLC platform the machine is Industry 4.0 ready. This allows facile reconfiguration for industrial production once your research is ready for technology transfer to a pilot or commercial phase.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL | FOM arcRC

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL | FOM arcRC

 

  • Multiple device processing
  • Easy material film forming testing
  • Material roll-to-roll compatibility screening
  • Hands-on research experience
  • Process development tool for solution processable materials
  • Minimal material consumption
  • Easy alignment of multiple subsequent layers
  • Slot Die head is simple to assemble, disassemble and clean

 

COMPACT LAB SCALE SLOT DIE COATING SYSTEM

Originally designed for OPV and LEC research, the FOM arcRC is ideal for researchers who wish to work with flexible substrates or scale up from spin coating.

SOLUTION PROCESSING

The FOM arcRC allows to test the solution processing of materials with respect to the production of multiple devices, film forming and roll-to-toll compatibility. It provides hands-on research coating. Currently the FOM arcRC is used for perovskite PV, OPV, OLEDs, thin-film sensors and functional material technologies in general where solution processing is applicable.

LOW MATERIALS CONSUMPTION – EASY OPERATION

The FOM arcRC design and small Slot Die head volume facilitates much lower materials consumption compared to larger systems. It is the ideal starting point for device processing development. Due to its ability to process numerous devices, the FOM arcRC enables the testing of material film-forming properties or device architecture printability in a fraction of the time compared to spin coating.
