OPTIMAGS COATING Machines

The machines are completely enclosed with HEPA- filtered air being recirculated throughout their complete interior. Clean room class 10.000 and better is reached inside these machines. Due to their unique coating and drying technology OPTIMAGS coating machines autonomously generate coils of either TDS patch- laminate or edible film without need to exchange or modify any of its components.

The machines are designated according to the foil size they can coat at maximum, as well as the path length inside their dryers. Thus, a PA 460- 4,7m can coat a 460 mm wide web and dry it in its dryer tunnel of 4,7 m length, a PA 260- 5,5m machine will handle a web of max. 260 mm width in a 5,5 m long dryer tunnel.

The hot air drying tunnel consists of up to 4 identical modules, each containing an individually programmable upper and lower drying zone, see Fig. 4, 5.
The tunnel length determines the maximum production speed, in other words: the longer the tunnel, the higher the output capacity. Thus, one may start with the small PA xxx- 4,7 m machine , and add further dryer modules, as the market develops.

In addition, the u- shaped foil path inside the dryer allows the arrangement of the OPTIMAGS knife coating station as well as all unwinders/rewinders, and lamination/delamination stations within the front-end machine compartment. On request the machine can also be equipped with a slitter for inline generation of daughter coils. An integrated, uC- controlled precision pump is a standard. As can be taken from Fig. 6, components within the compartment are assembled in a balcony manner. All these measures enable handling of the machine by one person only in a confined place.

The OPTIMAGS knife coater technology (patent pending) guarantees an unrivalled accurate film profile, easily undercutting the 5% uniformity dosage rate deviation as requested by US FDA, both for TDS patches as well as Edible Films.
