Faustel’s Technology Center stands ready to assist you with product development and process R&D. Our in-house facility includes a 300 mm Pilot Line and a 600 mm Production-Level Coating Line, both capable of aqueous and solvent-based coating using a wide variety of methods including slot die, comma roll, knife over roll, gravure, and hot-melt coating. The Process Development and Technology Center incorporates all well-known drying and curing technologies as well as a wide variety of coating, laminating, and winding capabilities. Faustel’s Technology Center is a modern process and product development resource available to converters and to coating and adhesive formulators. The Center features a 610m/min., 600mm (2000 fpm, 24″) wide pilot line that incorporates all major coating and curing/drying capabilities. The key to the line is flexibility, which allows converters to closely emulate processes used on their production lines. Process Development Faustel is available to help you successfully develop a process for new products or improve existing web products from initial laboratory coating to full-scale manufacturing. UV and EB curing, and thermal drying in roller support or floatation configurations are available. More than 40 coating methods provide a full range of application possibilities. Four unwinds and three rewinds allow a wide variety of web paths, putting numerous combinations of coating and laminating capabilities at the user’s disposal. The Future of Web Converting Web processing technology has come a long way since we opened our doors in 1956. We are proud to say that progress can be traced to the skill and ingenuity of the men and women at Faustel. Our engineers and craftsmen work directly with customers to find solutions to material converting problems though problem-solving and innovative solutions developed in our Process and Technology Center.
