We were able to perform our first test coatings with our recently developed slot-die coationg system. The system is now completely assembled and mounted inside an inert atmosphere box. Everything is remotely controllable via a scriptable coating command line software based on Python. This gives full remote control over the whole coating and annealing process.
The system was tested by coating a thin-film of black water based ink onto a 30m polyimide substrate. The coating was performed at room temperature with subsequent annealing on our annealing stage -which is included into the roll-to-roll setup- at 50 °C.
