Film Applicator Makes Uniformity Automatic

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Comment | More

TQC Automatic Film Applicator

TQC’s new Automatic Film Applicator is designed to ensure uniform delivery of paint and coating film thickness, opacity, hiding power, gloss, color and other application parameters.

The applicator eliminates differences in draw down speed and consistency, type and weight of applicator, shear rate of the coatings, and other factors that influence the smoothness and appearance of an applied film, ensuring reproducible and accurate film samples for test charts, specimens and test panels, according to the manufacturer.

Features and Interface

The applicator is equipped with ergonomic features that eliminate many steps in the standard operation procedure, the manufacturer says. An automatic chart clamp secures and releases the test chart, and the holder for the applicator returns automatically after the application, leaving wire wound rod coaters in a special holder.

Speed between 0 and 500 mm/s, length and start/stop positions are all fully adjustable. Settings are made digitally, through the multilingual, menu-driven, human interface using a jog/dial switch.

The unit boasts a small footprint that saves counter space, while accepting test charts as large as A3+ sizes. Either an ultra-flat float glass bed or anodized perforated vacuum bed with integrated vacuum pump is available as test table.

Safety Design

In addition to an emergency switch, the applicator is equipped with a range of intelligent safety sensors that detect objects between the machine's moving parts. Based upon the operating status and draw down length, the machine is designed to instantly recognize a dangerous situation, which will lead to a full stop of the process, the manufacturer says.
