Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

Working Voltage:


Oilless Vacuum Pump OFP (+ USD$699.00)
MSK-AFA-II-VC-FH is a CE Certified larger size automatic film coater with a heatable vacuum bed up to 120ºC. 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 a smooth coating with all types of materials. The pin holes on the bed can hold the substrate sheet on the bed via a vacuum. This is very helpful when performing coating on the thin substrate. It is an ideal tool for ceramic tape casting and Li-Ion battery electrode coating.

Working Voltage
110VAC or 208~240VAC, 50/60Hz (please select one in the voltage option bar)
Max. Power Consumption 2050W

Traverse Speed
  • 10 - 100 mm/sec variable [Without any load, the read traverse speed is around 90 mm/s when the speed is set as 100 mm/s. Therefore the real speed for coating should be calibrated by customer themslves by using a ruler and stop watch]
  • Accuracy: 10mm/sec
  • Controlled by 24 VDC motor. 
Stroke Length 10 - 530 mm adjustable by using Adjustable Position Switch
Max. Coating Dimensions 250mm(W) x 530mm(L)
Heated Vacuum Bed
  • A heated vacuum bed is made of aluminum alloy with a micro-size hole
  • Vacuum Chuck Dimensions: 600mm(L) x 300mm(W)
  • Heating elements are built inside the vacuum bed for a uniform heating up to 100ºC Max. 
  • Precision digital temperature controller with +/- 1ºC accuracy
Film Applicator

Application Notes
  • Pic.1 & 2 show coated cathode 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 from slurry to make uniform coatings (Click Pic.4)
  • 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 the 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.)
