200°C Max 4" Wide Vertical Hot Rolling Press with Dual-Zone Temperature Control ( NRTL Ready & Ar Glovebox compatible ) - MSK-HRP-02


In stock
Item Number: MSK-HRP-02
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Personalization

MSK-HRP-02 Vertical Hot Rolling Press features a pair of 100mm wide steel rollers with independent temperature control up to 200°C. Its vertical rolling position allows users to "gravity feed" flexible films/tapesSuch a compact calender  machine can be put in Ar gas glove-box and very useful for preparing flexible battery electrode sheet for Li-ion / Soli Metal-Air battery research

SPECIFICATIONS

Rate Voltage & Power

Effective Cylinder Width

96mm

Roller Size 100mm Dia.x 100mm W

Product Thickness

0~1.2 mm adjustable

Dial Gauge Accuracy

0.01mm
Minimum Thickness
Depending on the electrode's material and thickness, typically:
  • A 0.16mm thick electrode coated on copper can be pressed into a minimum thickness of  0.1 mm
  • A 0.06mm thick electrode coated on copper can be pressed into a minimum thickness of 0.04 mm
  • A 0.33mm thick silver/gold can be pressed into a minimum thickness of 0.03 mm
Temperature Control

  • Two independent temperature controllers enable dual-zone temperature control for the front and rear rollers.
  • Temperature range: RT - 200°C
  • Temperature accuracy +/-5°C
  • Max heating temp: 200°C <30min
  • Continuous heating temp: 180°C
  • Two heating elements are installed
  • Power of each Heating Element: 500 Watts
  • Below is a diagram of the Heating Elements.
Heating Rate
  • RT-100°C: ~3°C/min
  • 100-150°C: ~2.5°C/min
  • 150-200°C: 1~2°C/min
Gravity-Feed Design


Two rollers are aligned horizontally and supported by the steel frame. Such a design allows users gravity-feed flexible materials front above the rollers and collects at the bottom.

Motor

  • High torque 24VDC motor with reducing gear 
  • 0.8A
  • Rated power 40W
  • Speed Indicator Display: 0~40
  • Actual rolling speed: 0~26 mm /sec (Actual Speed = display value * 0.65 )

Surface Hardness of Rollers

HRC 52

Warning:  Never roll materials with hardness >40HRC because rollers are softened in 200℃.
Note: Bench top rolling press is not suitable for calendering thick metals. For applications with such needs, please consult with MTI engineers.

Application Notes

Important announcement (please read this before place the order)

  • The MSK-HRP-02 roller is specially designed for battery R&D in terms of its advantages as affordable, compact and precise. Please strictly follow the instructions to operate
  • Must use acetone to clean rollers' surface after each use
  • Never rolling material with hardness > 50HRC
  • If the machine will be idle for a long period of time, please apply anti-rust lubricant on the rollers
  • The minimum thickness of the rolled sheet should depend on the physical property of the material. Here are some results from our test:
  • Please refer to this instruction on how to calculate rolling pressure from roller gap (reference only)
Electrode  Size    Original thickness    Finished thickness   
LiFePO4 double sides 50mm Width x 260mm Length    0.205mm 0.09mm
LiMn2O4 double sides 50mm Width x 260mm Length 0.205mm 0.09mm
Copper foil + graphite (single side) 75mm Width x 240mm Length 0.09mm 0.04mm

  • This rolling press can be used to make free-standing 2D metal nanosheets by a repeated process of folding and calendaring stacked metal sheets (See reference below)

Warnings
  • Do not touch the surface of the rolling part of the machine when the rollers are heated up or running.
  • Due to the influence of working environments, the temperature on the roller surface may be different from the display on the controller. You may calibrate the temperature by EQ-TC-calibrator-LD, and refer to the instruction here from time to time to ensure heating temperature accuracy
  • Never roll materials with hardness > 50HRC
  • DC motor power supply voltage reduces to 24V DC so that the rolling machine can be used under Ar gas environment.
  • In order to prolong the lifespan of the roller bearings, regular lubrication is recommended. 
  • Multi-step thickness calendering needed: While calendering the sample sheet, make each calendering decrement of 0.02mm comparing with sheet original thickness.
  • Never calendering decrement over 0.02mm comparing with original sheet thickness each calendering.
  • Clean roller surface before and after each rolling process. Lubricate the roller surface when the machine is planned for idle to avoid corrosion.
  • This rolling machine can be used under Ar gas
  • It is not allowed to use any MTI product in any hazardous location, especially prohibit from using in Class I environments (flammable gasses & vapor).
