Press release date: January 14, 2014

The TQC Automatic film applicator provides a reliable basis to apply coating films to test charts, panels or foils in a uniform and reproducible way in order to eliminate variations caused by human factors.

Variations in speed, pressure and direction of draw down cause irregularities. Other factors that may influence the result are the shear rate and the weight of the applicator. With the TQC Automatic film applicator these variable factors are being stabilized. Over the complete surface the film thickness is even.

Samples created with the TQC Automatic film applicator are reproducible. It's possible to produce a large number of identical laboratory precision draw downs in a short period of time. The quality of the applied film is important for research on rheological properties of the applied media. To prepare samples for testing rheological properties, abrasion resistance, hiding power and gloss the TQC Automatic film applicator is a must have. Multiple types of automatic film applicators are available for either glass/paper/metal substrates or foils. All models can be used in combination with either standard block type film applicators such as bird/baker models, or spiral bar type film applicators (wire-wound rod type) depending on the configuration chosen.

FEATURES:
Automatic test chart clamp
Test charts are fixed automatically (when no vacuum bed is used) and also released automatically when the process is finished. This eliminates two steps in the process and the operator does not need to bend over the machine to reach for a clamp.

Easy to clean ultra plane glass bed
Easy to clean ultra plane glass bed with models AB3120 and AB3125.

Vacuum bed with built in vacuum pump
Vacuum bed with built in vacuum pump with models AB3220, AB3225, AB3320 and AB3325. Complete with 2 electronically controlled vacuum area's of DIN A3 (11.7 x 16.5") and DIN A4 (11.7" x 8.3") size. *A3 only for AB3320 and AB3325.

Removable bed for easy cleaning and maintenance
The open structure of the back of the vacuum bed ensures the vacuum holes can be cleaned at all times.

Automatic bar coaters storage device
This positions the bar coaters on a holder at the end of the test chart. The traverse will retract automatically after the application of the film. This eliminates another two-steps in the process and generates important time savings.

Flexible
The machine is suitable for all types of applicators. Set-up of length and speed is adjustable in any way the operator chooses while a pre-selection of popular settings is programmed for quick setup.

Wide speed range
Wide speed range of 2 to 500 mm/sec.

Extensive operator safety features
Besides an emergency stop button the machine is equipped with intelligent hand-detectors at the side which will stop the machine immediately when body parts are in immediate proximity of the moving traverse. TQC automatic film applicators comply with directive 2006/42/EG on machinery.

Solid support feet
Extremely robust adjustable feet that guarantee a stable position of the machine to prevent external disturbances.

Menu driven
All settings are made digitally through the multi-lingual menu-driven human interface that offers an intuitive operation using a convenient jog/dial switch. No manual necessary.

Operator orientation saves counter space
Display and buttons are located on the short side of the applicator.

Illuminated
To illuminate the working area a flexible light of 5W warm white LED's is standard supplied.

Silent
The integrated vacuum pump of the TQC film applicators is fitted with silencers which decrease the sound level without vacuum from 81dBa to 66dBa. With the chart in position and vacuum in place the level is 60dBa.
