Working Voltage:


Oillless Vacuum Pump OFP (+ USD$599.00)
MSK-AFA-II-VC-FH is a CE Certified larger size automatic film coater with heatable vacuum bed upto 100ºC. It is designed to produce films with consistent thickness by using micrometer adjustable applicators or fixed thickness applicators. It has a stable driving system to promote the smooth coating with all types of materials. The pin holes on the bed allow the substrate sheet to be hold in place with vacuum applied. This is very helpful when perform coating on the thin substrate. It is an ideal tool for ceramic tape casting and Li-Ion battery electrode coating.

Application Notes
  • Pic.1 and 2 show coated cathode and anode for Li-Ion battery. Please click here to see how to coat an electrode sheet.
  • It is recommended to operate the coater under a fume hood. (Click Pic.3 for detail.)
  • You need a vacuum mixer to remove air bubbles inside slurry and to make uniform coatings (Click Pic.4 for detail.)
  • You may need a Slurry Viscosity Tester to make coatings consistent (Click Pic.5 for detail.)
  • You may need a vacuum oven to dry the films and remove binder after coating. (Click Pic.6 for detail.)
  • Rolling pressing is necessary to ensure good density and adhesion of electrode materials to the current collector substrate after coating. Please select a rolling press from here. (Click Pic.7 for detail.)
  • For using other Film Applicator different from standard package, customized Traverse Pusher required to ensure the constant coating speed.( Click Pic.9 for detail.)
  • Test the flexibility of the coated electrode with EQ-MBT-12-LD mandrel bending tester. (Click Pic.10 for detail.)
