Transparent films vacuum coatings machine with integrated in-line monitoring and control

Transparent films vacuum coatings machine with integrated in-line monitoring and control

Objective

TransMach is led by current and future needs for packaging films (30 GEuro products in 2001), optical coatings on flexible substrates, solar modules and flexible displays (20 GEuro in 2005), where cost efficient production and high quality transparent coatings by large area vacuum (LAV) machines are the drivers and Europe's difficulties. TransMach in an integrated approach develops an ultra-fast unit to monitor the processes and a method to screen transparent coating properties to demonstrate an intelligent and reliable LAV machinery with in-line control solving the difficulties in: processes (speed 10m/s, moving surfaces, surface cleaning and then coated), technical demands for coatings (defined optical and barrier properties), requirements for material and energy consumption (thickness), repeatability, high quality products and cost reduction.
