The formation of ice on surfaces is a major problem in many areas, for example in aviation. Aircraft wings and moving parts of helicopters that have frozen have to be de-iced in a complex manner.
Validation of in-line visual control system of “invisible” coatings Molecular Plasma Group (MPG) now allows its customers to see the invisible (coating). The new in-line visual inspection system based on UV fluorescence has been validated at 30 m/min in industrial use. A correlation could be obtained between the camera feedback signal and the virucidal efficacy
Completely off the roll One of the core competencies of the Fraunhofer FEP is the development and use of roll-to-roll technologies for coating or modifying flexible substrates for different applications. This includes a range of coating processes such as slot die coating, electron beam evaporation or pulsed magnetron sputtering. Flexible materials can be, for example,
Roplass is a leading company in large-area atmospheric plasma processing of surfaces and nanostructured coatings. Roplass designs unique plasma treaters operating under open air for applications in flexible and printed electronics.
Large-area optical components with a particularly low surface roughness below 10 nm Ra and with high contour accuracy require efficient manufacturing technologies:
R2R NET will have a strong presence at PSE2022 with 8 contributions from network partners about their R2R plasma technologies.
They will cover topics like antimicrobial and antiviral coatings, anti-ice films, advanced flame treatments, plasma etching of recycled PET, nanocoatings for filtration media, thermochromic coatings, and the application of flash lamps.
European R2R network offers workshop on climate-friendly roll-to-roll production technologies In order to achieve the urgently needed climate neutrality in industry and the socienty as quickly as possible, energy requirements must be reduced and resources used more efficiently than before. Many industrial manufacturing processes will have to change significantly to achieve this. In the “R2R
A Special Issue of “Vakuum in Forschung und Praxis – ViP“ is dedicated to Roll-to-Roll-Processes Several partners of our network have contributed to the next issue of Vakuum in Forschung und Praxis – ViP dedicated to roll-to-roll processes and published on August 26th. A multitude of surface properties aimed at and realized by using different
Registration now open – Workshop “Roll-to-Roll Technologies – Get ready for future challenges” Building further on last year’s event “Roll-to-Roll Technologies at Work – for functionalized surfaces”, for which more than 180 people from 25 countries registered, R2R NET is organising an interactive workshop on September 21 to discuss the answers that roll-to-roll technologies can
Roll-to-roll processes play an important role in numerous industrial processes. They can be used to functionalize materials, for instance films, textiles, flat membranes, metal foils or even ultra-thin glass.
