Custom Web Coating and Laminating System
Custom Web Coating and Laminating System

The Challenge

A company manufacturing a medical test strip required a special laminating and coating system. The system was required to accurately control the tension of the web and two additional cover layers. A high viscosity material needed to be accurately coated on each layer of film prior to the installation of the cover sheet. The entire system had to be designed to operate in a zero humidity environment.

The Solution

Creative Automation designed and fabricated an assembly using precision servo drives at all key points to control the web tension. The coating and laminating stations utilize technologies previously developed by Creative Automation for accurate dispensing on the film material and Calendaring. All components were properly fabricated and coated to operate in the zero humidity environment.
