FHR.Roll series

Film coating for flexible electronics and thin film solar cells in research and production

  • Precision mechanical winding with web edge guide   
  • Production of form-flexible thin film solar cells, heat protection foils and printed circuit boards
  • AVOtouch technology for contact-free front side coating   
  • Suitable for portable, lightweight and flexible applications

Sputtering, vapour deposition and PECVD systems for flexible film substrates such as metal strips or polymer films

Our roll-to-roll concepts

Modern electronics are flexible. Our roll-to-roll vacuum coating systems with PVD and PECVD technology are the ideal system concept for production of products such as flexible solar cells, organic display films or flexible sensors. Metal and plastic films are used as substrate materials, the coating width is set individually. This design concept offers the highest level of flexibility in the field of sputtering and vapour deposition processes. A freely programmable web winding system and the ability to regulate the temperature of the substrate allow various substrate materials and film thicknesses to be processed in a wide process window. We have the expertise needed to integrate in-situ process monitoring and derived online process control.
