Multi-Step Modular Film Web Coater    

Modular web film coater

Overview

Multi-step complete system for web film coating that can generate metalic and non metalic coatings on flexible substrates. The films are deposited under vacuum conditions, particularly for capacitors comprising a housing that can be pressure-tight sealed. The system has a device for taking in the film web and also comprises an evaporating sources.

Primary Application of the Technology

The primary application is for flexible capacitors and electronics.

Other Potential Applications

This technology can also be used for coating of flexible substrates with multiple materials.

Competitive Advantage

The competitive advantage of this technology is high performance coating specifications in thickness control and uniformity across the web. Another advantage is that masking capabilities are built in the system.

The seller would like to be granted a license back.

Additional Information

There are overall 38 patents in this portfolio, 8 of them are not published yet.

Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 118: Coating Apparatus

pparatus for applying or obtaining a surface coating on a base and/or apparatus for impregnating base materials and takes all such apparatus not provided for in other classes. The coating obtained may be permanent or transitory. The coating may be supplied solely by extraneous materials, as in a painting or waxing operation, or may be supplied wholly or in part by the base materials as in the formation of an oxide coating on a metal base. The coating may consist of an emulsion, dispersion, solution, admixture or oil which is clearly disclosed as leaving a residual film, layer or continuous deposit on the base.

Subclass 718: Running length work
Subclass 720: Having means to expose a portion of a substrate to coating medium
Subclass 726: Crucible or evaporator structure

Class 226: Advancing Material Of Indeterminate Length

A process or apparatus for handling indeterminate-length* material in one of the following ways: (1) moving such material in a direction generally along said length dimension, (2) sensing such material and imparting additional movement to, or otherwise controlling movement of, said material responsive to said sensing, (3) threading a new portion of such material into or through material moving apparatus or (4) constraining such material through a certain path of movement relative to a disclosed material moving apparatus.

Subclass 190: Including details of roll or mount

Class 26: Textiles: Cloth Finishing

The treatment of textile fabrics subsequent to the fabrication thereof for putting them in better marketable condition. Due to the similarity of the shearing of fur in the finishing of a fur skin to the shearing of the surface fibers or threads of cloth, particularly that of pile fabric, and the finishing of fur by shearing is included in this class.

Subclass 99: Roller spreader

Class 239: Fluid Sprinkling, Spraying, And Diffusing

The general class for claims pertaining to the spraying, sprinkling, or scattering of fluids or fluent solids either in the form of slurries or as dry material, over an extended area on a surface, including - weather control or modification, diffusers, fountains, drinking tubes and straw, dry pulverulent material, terminal fluid handling elements and orifice shapes.

Subclass 82: Nozzle with molten pool holder
Subclass 83: Wire or rod type supply

Class 392: Electric Resistance Heating Devices

Subclass 388: For metal vapor deposition
