Compact tape casting coater with a heating cover designed to produce films with consistent thickness. It has a unique driving system to produce a smooth coating on all types of materials. The flat vacuum chuck is built into hold the substrate sheet in place, which is particularly useful when making thin coatings. One 140 mm width adjustable micrometer applicator (doctor-blade). Heating cover with digital temperature controller can dry films after coating up to 200°C with a temperature accuracy of +/-1°C. This equipment can be used for researchers on ceramic tape castings and Li-Ion battery electrode coating.
