Pilot Scale Roll to Roll

Roll to Roll Speed and Flexibility

PulseForge tools can be configured for either stand-alone web handling, or for
integration with existing web-handling equipment. These new tools can be used
for manufacturing R&D and scale-up, including for pilot line production of 
continuous-web products.

NovaCentrix offers the PulseForge 1200 and 1300 configured as a standalone Roll to Roll print and cure system as an $80,000 option. This low cost configuration offers entry into continuous manufacturing with pneumatic/electrical roll handling, precise digital tension control, digital web alignment, flexographic printing, near infrared drying, and PulseForge curing at speeds up to 30 meters/minute. Inkjet configurations are available at additional cost.

PulseForge 1200 and 1300 tools can also be configured for integration with existing web-handling or conveyor based equipment. These tools are used for manufacturing R&D and scale-up, including for pilot line production of continuous-web products.

Process conditions developed using the Roll to Roll configuration can be transferred directly for use with the full-scale PulseForge 3200 and 3300 production tools.

In place of the standard Sample Positioning system the Roll to Roll configuration adds:
  • Completely standalone with no other required modules
  • Integrated printing system, drying system and PulseForge® curing system
  • Process speed up to 30 meters per minute/100 feet per minute
  • Process width up to 150mm/6 inches
