The new Pro-Cast series lab-scale tape casting/coating machines from HED International, Inc. offer a simplified and inexpensive forming method for product development, research and quality control. The new machines are simple to use yet sophisticated enough to provide a versatile research and development platform.
The lab-scale machines are designed with an enclosed drying chamber and removable tempered glass viewports for ease of product access and visual inspection. Precision casting and coating applications are accomplished with a calibrated doctor blade set on a solid granite plate. Independently controlled heaters and an exhaust fan are provided for counter-flow circulation and dynamic management of the drying process and vapor removal. A variable speed drive with both carrier payout and removable take-up spools are also included.
At less then 10 ft in overall length, the units are suitable for either tabletop or freestanding installations. Each machine comes complete with an integrated control system, wired and ready for immediate operation. A variety of custom options is also available.
Developers that successfully produce prototypes on the Pro-Cast series lab-scale machines can be confident that similar results will be produced when they transition to the larger-scale Pro-Cast production machines.
