Beneq delivers world’s first scaled-up roll-to-roll ALD system to ASTRaL

  Coatings

Finnish Beneq has announced the delivery of its first industrial-scale system to the Advanced Surface Technology Research Laboratory (ASTRaL), a research unit based in Mikkeli, Finland. The R2R system allows the development of rapidly growing new applications that were not able to take advantage of ALD coating until now.

Atomic layer deposition, ALD, is a thin film technology that enables new and highly competitive products
Beneq announces a breakthrough in its roll-to-roll (R2R) atomic layer deposition (ALD) technology with the delivery of its first industrial-scale system to the Advanced Surface Technology Research Laboratory (ASTRaL), a research unit based in Mikkeli, Finland, that belongs to the Lappeenranta University of Technology. The R2R system allows the development of rapidly growing new applications that were not able to take advantage of ALD coating until now.
Beneq has successfully scaled up its proprietary continuous ALD process to a 500mm wide web using the R2R manufacturing method. Testing of the pilot WCS 500 system was completed in December 2012, and the system is currently being delivered to ASTRaL. The system is the promising outcome of a longer-term partnership between ASTRaL and Beneq.
Dr Tommi Vainio, CTO of Beneq, says, “Evidence of the successful process scale-up to 500 mm and beyond has a profound impact on how this technology is perceived. We’ve leapfrogged from a 120mm proof-of-concept system up to industrial scale in just over one year. This is a true test of the inherent robustness of the ALD process and Beneq’s engineering skills.”
According to Professor David Cameron, Director of ASTRaL: “We’re thrilled to have the world’s first industrial-scale R2R ALD system and look forward to exploring the exciting R&D opportunities that come with it.”
Beneq currently offers two systems for R2R ALD: The WSC 500 has been designed for R&D to pilot scale; the TFS ...
