Automatic Film Applicator

Standards: ASTM D823, D4147 and ISO 11998

Automatic Drawdown Machine

 

The byko-drive XL Automatic Film Applicator has the most flexible design to perform drawdowns of coatings and inks. The dry film appearance is impacted by drawdown speed and pressure on the applicator tool. A programmable speed control from 5 - 500 mm/sec. in 1 mm/sec. increments is standard. Interchangeable weights apply pressure across the entire length of the applicator for a consistent film thickness. The push bar is designed to accommodate a wide variation in wire-rod sizes, applicator bars, applicator frames, and film casting knives.
