MSK-AFA-III is a compact tape-casting coater with various heating 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 in to hold the substrate sheet in place. One 100 mm width adjustable micrometer applicator (doctor-blade).  The heating plate with the digital controller either on top or bottom is optional for drying up to 100° with +/-1°C temperature accuracy. This equipment can be used by researchers on ceramic tape castings and Li-Ion battery electrode coating. 
Bottom heated upgrade to Max. 120°C since Jan.15, 2019; Top UV Light is added for the curing process of polymers since March 10, 2019.
