Airknife Coater

The airknife coater can apply and dry air-knife coatings at 300-1000 fpm (90-300 m/min). Speed is dependent upon the viscosity, solids, and coating runnability. Webs up to 26 inches (660 mm) wide from rolls up to 60 inches (1520 mm) in diameter. Actual maximum coated area is 22-23 inches (560-585 mm). Width of uncoated area is dependent upon the runnability of coating formulation.

Undercoating also possible using blade or rod metering coater at same location. For coater details such as drying capabilities and calendering please see our pilot coarter diagram.
