The Hydrophilic Coating Machine is used for coating of catheter production assemblies.
Up to 21 products are coated simultaneously by dipping and subsequent UV exposure in a controlled environment. A pneumatic system enables automatic switching between two rows of coating tubes (base coat and top coat). The machine is also equipped with a temperature and humidity sensor and two digital cameras to monitor the process.
This machine is equipped with a BW-TEC HMI, touch screen and PC for recipe management.
