Technical Centers

Test your next Process! Test us and test with us!

Polytype Converting can draw from a unique set-up of Technical Centers, located in Switzerland and Germany.

In our Technical Centers customers and Polytype Converting engineers work together to further develop converting processes and optimize customized applications. The centers are also dedicated to minimizing the manufacturing costs for products that require surface finishing.

Customers benefit greatly from joint feasibility studies designed to support investment decisions, the development and optimization of product formulations, scale-up from laboratory and pilot phases to series production, the validation of new designs, and staff training.

 

TECHMA 1

The center piece of TECHMA 1 are the 50 different coating methods. These include a unique possibility for multi-layer curtain coating and possibilities to coat and laminate multiple substrates simultaneously.

  • Solvent-free and solvent based coatings
  • Thermal drying/curing
  • Line speed: 10 – 1,000 m/min
  • Substrate width: up to 840 mm

TECHMA 2

This line offers like TECHMA 1 the entire portfolio of coating processes and systems. In addition this line is designed to cure the coatings via radiation treatment like UV, IR and especially E-Beam. Furthermore TECHMA 2 offers the chance to demonstrate high speed flying splice operation at speeds up to 1500 m/min.
