USI updates coating tool for tablet, large display fab and R2R processing May 31, 2012 — Ultrasonic Systems Inc. (USI), ultrasonic spray coating tool manufacturer, developed new options for its MAX-800 coating system, such as an automated reel-to-reel system, tablet-glass handling conveyor, and more. The MAX-800 is a large-format (780mm2), high-speed X/Y/Z spray coating system using the company’s proprietary nozzle-less ultrasonic spray head technology for thin, uniform coatings. The optional active HEPA filtration system and vacuum-purged actuators ensure class-100-cleanroom-compatible conditions in the spray area. USI’s Precision Metering Pump liquid delivery system with servo motor control and automatic pump re-fill, delivers precise, repeatable liquid flow to the spray head. The tool is used to make displays, fuel cells, batteries, solar cells, and other devices. New options for the system include application-specific-sized heated substrate fixture with vacuum hold, a heavy-duty conveyor for large substrates and pallets, an automated reel-to-reel (R2R) system for coating foil substrates, and a walking beam conveyor for transporting tablet-PC-sized glass plates. Ultrasonic Systems, Inc. (USI) manufactures high-performance spray coating equipment based on patented, nozzle-less ultrasonic spray head technology. Learn more at http://www.ultraspray.com/.
