Intermediate-level | FOM arcRC
The FOM arcRC has been designed to mimic industrial roll-based coating in a lab-friendly format. By integrating industry-grade components and a user-friendly interface, the FOM arcRC provides a seamless, accelerated user workflow and excellent control for coating a wide variety of functional materials. It is an ideal solution for users aiming to bridge the gap between fundamental research and pilot-scale production, with an emphasis on sheer and gravity effects control via variable slot-die attack positions around the coating roll.
- Lab-friendly roll-to-roll processing tool
- Multiple slot-die positions and angles
- Coating area 200 x 1000mm
- Drum enabled with temperature control
- Minimized experiment-to-experiment downtime through an active cooling system
- Multi-coating techniques equipment (Slot-die coating, blade-coating, flexographic-printing)
- Easy alignment of multiple layers
Compact lab-scale slot-die coating system
Originally designed for organic photovoltaics (OPV) and light-emitting electrochemical cell research (LEC), the FOM arcRC is ideal for researchers who wish to work with flexible substrates on a platform that is closer to a pilot-scale production line.
From lab-to-fab concept
The arcRC is designed as a versatile research tool with an extra-large printing area capacity, yet compact enough that you can fit it inside a glove box. From the advent of perovskite-based photovoltaics, the technology readiness of lithium-ion batteries, to the development of any disruptive product idea that exploits the numerous advantages of thin-film technologies, the arcRC will boost any research targets from laboratory small-sized flexible devices to production relevant scales. Post-deposition treatments units such as drying/annealing and docking modules can the stand-alone FOM arcRC tool into a roll-to-roll unit. The FOM arcRC tool is well equipped for boosting the technology readiness level of your research, and demonstrating proof of concepts from lab to fab.
