Carpe Diem Technologies is now manufacturing small diameter Gravure Rolls. These rolls function using the reverse kiss coating method which applies a smooth consistent coating to the web. The smaller diameter has been proven to produce a more precise homogenous coating which is important when used for processes in medical, electronics, optics, and energy fields.
These gravure rolls are compatible with Yasui Seiki MICROGRAVURE®* rolls and can be used interchangeably in any system. Carpe Diem Technologies’ Gravure Rolls are designed to produce a consistent, even coating between a wide range of coating thicknesses, data shown in table below. Gravure Rolls are available in a wide range of lengths and diameters, with varying pitch and depth specifications.
Manufactured in the USA, the lead time for these rolls are routinely under three weeks, but can be expedited if necessary.
Additional patterns are available.
Common angles that are available are: 30, 45, 60
Further angles available from 0˚ to 90˚
