Benchtop Roll-to-Roll Tape Casting System with Heating Bed and Hot Rolling Press - MSK-AFA-HRP-150

In stock
Item Number: MSKAFAHRP150
Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

MSK-AFA-HRP-150 is a benchtop roll-to-roll electrode coating system. Such a system features electrostatic dust remover for a particle-free coating environment. The calendar with pressure readings allows thin films to be densified right after the bake-out. The roll-to-roll fashion enables the continuous treatment process: substrate feeding, tape casting, bottom heated drying, roll pressing, reeling the processed films. It is ideal for coating applications such as lithium-ion battery electrode slurry, solid-state electrolyte film, and ceramic film research. 



  • R2R fashion enables automatic substrate feeding and receiving
  • The doctor blade is included for tape casting
  • The bottom heated bed provides uniform heating and drying for the coating slurry
  • Rolling press with pressure readings, up to 200ºC, 2 tons force


  • Hot Rolling Press: 208 – 240VAC, 50/60Hz, single phase, 1.8 kW
  • Roll-to-roll Coating: 208 – 240VAC, 50/60Hz, single phase, 1.2 kW

Coating Method & Precision

  • Tape casting is done with a doctor blade on a flat marble platform
  • Doctor Blade Coating technique (click the picture on the left to see details)
  • Coating Thickness Precision: 0.01 mm
  • One 150mm blade is included. MSK-AFA-HRP-150 can take a blade up to 180mm wide.

Coating Performance

  • 150 mm with an included doctor blade.
  • Max. coating width: 180 mm with an optional doctor blade.
  • Max. substrate width: 188 mm
  • Max. substrate roll diameter: 80 mm
  • Speed: 2 - 100 mm/s adjustable
  • Thickness: 0 - 5 mm adjustable
  • Max. Coating Length: Depending on the coating and substrate thickness. (The slurry consumption)

Drying Chamber

  • 90 °C Max bottom heating bed
  • The casting flatbed is enclosed by a 1000mm long drying chamber. A 1 kW heating plate enables continuous-flow heated circulation through the drying chamber. 

Static Control & Dust Removal

  • A destabilizing bar for neutralizing the static of the substrate material.
  • Air curtain (8 mm width, 180 mm long) for dust removal (Air pressure: <10 psi)

Heatable Roll Pressing System

  • Effective calendering width: 200mm
  • High strength hardening steel with hardness HRC > 52  (Attention: It is not suitable for calendering materials with HRC > 45)
  • The Roller surface is plated by Cr for anti-corrosive property
  • Roller Size: 96 mm Dia. x 220mm W
  • Temperature: 200 °C max.
  • Pressure Up to 2T

Rolling Pressing Performance

  • Roller Gap: 0 - 1.8 mm adjustable
  • Dial Gauge Accuracy: 0.01mm
  • Pressure: 0 - 2000 kgf  (Note: the actual calendering force is dependent on the material physical properties such as hardness and thickness. The rolling gap thickness will also affect the applied force.)

Roller Heating System

  • Two digital temperature controller with 30 segments programmable for control two rollers separately
  • Max Temperature: 150 °C suggested (200°C maximum)
  • Max Heating Rate: 4°C/minute
  • Power of Heating Elements: 1600 W
  • Temperature Control Accuracy: ±5 °C
