Phase 3: Development

The development phase is the most important part of the process, where we finalise the project requirements. This phase will usually include pilot line and main line trials, as well as trials held at your own facility.

Working in partnership with you is important for the successful completion of this process; we welcome customer involvement at all stages of the development process.

Information on all lines:

Pilot line:

Our machine comprises of a knife over roll or knife over plate coating head, with a 5m, 2 zone thermal drying oven. The pilot line is able to process a wide range of adhesives (acrylic psa and silicone gel) onto a number of different substrates. Anything that is made on the pilot line is scalable to our main coating lines. A pilot line booking includes the full support of our Business Development Team, on hand lab testing facilities, full technical report, full customer input (customers welcome to bring any additional testing equipment).

Line 3 Machine

Perforator:

  • films, acrylic coated films, silicone gel coated products
  • Perforation diameter ranging from 1.5-3mm+
  • Max width = 500mm – 1600mm
Perforator

Slitting and Converting Capabilities:

Reel to reel slit rewinder :

  • Able to rewind or slit rewind from master rolls to widths between 15mm – 1600mm

Delamination/relamination & reel to reel slitter:

  • Process = replace release liners, add in other carriers
  • Able to slit post-lamination
  • Max width = 15mm – 1600mm

We also have close partnerships with specialist convertors who can offer a finished and packed medical product.
