MODULAR DESIGN

A New Automated Approach To Coating & Metallization

The PST Line II consists of several modules integrated together and dependent on the customer’s requirement. Supported by Tapematic engineers, PST Line II can be customized according to the required workflow and products to achieve an optimal metallization and UV coating process.
TRAY CONCEPT

The Superlative Performance of an Innovative System

Up to 7800 pieces can be processed per hour. Trays travel along a conveyor between the different modules. Up to 13 parts are arranged on a single tray. PST Line II has the same modular concept as the PST Line I, expanding capacity from the larger trays and sputtering module. New formats are quick and easy to set-up. Different configurations can be stored in the system for instant recall and fast changeover, enabling short production runs for greater flexibility.
