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.
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).

We also have close partnerships with specialist convertors who can offer a finished and packed medical product.
It's important we sit with you to scope the project and understand the parameters. Together we agree targets and timelines.
Following our initial discussions, we construct samples for evaluation. We then review their performance and agree on the next steps. At this stage we can also gauge initial costs and give you an indicative quote.
This is the longest phase of the process and will often include pilot line and main line trials (all with your input), as well as trials held at your own facility. All this is done working in partnership with the Raleigh Business Development Team.
Once a construction is agreed, the next step is the approval of the manufacturing process and confirmation of costs & quote.
This phase includes taking all the development process work and the operational qualification and signing off the specification with you.
