Paper Abstract

The design is described of a prototype semi-continuous roll coater for the manufacture of optical multilayer coatings. It consists of an unload-, a process-, and a rewind module. The process module has been designed to accommodate both resistance and electron beam gun sources. Although the prototype can deposit only one layer at a time, an expanded production machine should be capable of depositing several layers onto the moving web on each pass.
