Automatic Film Applicator

The MAF-400 FIilm Applicator is economical equipment that improves the consistency of drawdowns. When more than one operator is drawing down the same coating or ink, the dry film appearance will vary because of different drawdown techniques. Drawdown speed and pressure on the applicator tool will impact the result. Film thickness, gloss, opacity, and colour can vary with differing drawdown techniques.

The MAF-400 is available with a vacuum plate or glass plate with the clamp. Applicator bars, U-shaped bars, applicator frames, film casting knives, and wire-wound rods are acceptable applicators. MAF-400 has a compact design consisting of a lightweight aluminium chassis and impact-resistant thermo-plastic cover.

  • User selectable start and stop positions to accommodate different chart sizes
  • Power assist carriage return for ease of operation
  • Drip pan for faster cleanup
  • Weight and bar fixture for consistent pressure on applicator devices
  • Small footprint to save on counter space
