Fluid Mechanics, Coating Devices and Diffusion Dryers

FMP Technology

FMP Technology is an industry leader within the field of fluid mechanics and was founded as a corporate spin-off of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg's Institute of Fluid Mechanics. The company's focus remains on developing its knowledge of certain technologies into commercially viable products.

One of its main product areas is coating systems and drying technologies, which is aimed at making the customer process more efficient, economic and reproducible. To produce the best product possible, FMP Technology develops its solutions across the entire process chain, from the initial design through research and development to the final manufacturing stages.

As a result, FMP Technology provides small, medium and large companies with system solutions based on their knowledge of fluid mechanics and developed by their team of graduates, engineers and physicists.

Coating products from FMP Technology are designed with the knowledge that customers are looking for defect-free technology, capable of providing a reliable and easy-to-handle solution.

FMP Technology's effective calculation methods have led to a product range that has introduced many new tools and devices to the market, as well as improved existing technologies.

FMP Technology's slot die coating solution provides a pre-metered, contact-free process suited for applications that require one or more fluid layers. It is an extremely economical and easy-to-control process, compatible with the company's 'Coating Window Suite' software, which calculates layer thickness.

Slot Die Coating Technology

  • Bead-Coating-Mode
  • Curtain-Coating-Mode
  • Extrusion-Coating-Mode
  • Web-Tension-Coating-Mode

The software-based system meets the need for a flexible and universal application coating technology which is able to handle water/solvent-based fluids, hotmelt adhesives as well as plastic used for foil extrusion. This is a first for the industry.

Along with slot die coating, FMP Technology also provides solutions for spray coating, roller coating and knife-edge coating.

Coating Devices

FMP Technology is able to provide custom-made devices for specific applications and requirements. These are delivered to the customers ready to use, meeting the EC Machinery Directive and Machine Directive 2006/42/EG.

Coating device systems for R&D and production issues include:

  • Sheet-to-Sheet devices
  • Roll-to-Roll devices
  • Trolleys

Diffusion Dryer

FMP Technology's diffusion dryers provide an energy-efficient, economical alternative to conventional convection dryers, which are currently in use. Convection dryers have been shown to use only 20% of their energy for drying, wasting 80%. FMP Technology's diffusion dryers, on the other hand, use 80% of the energy in the drying process - making them 4x more efficient.

The diffusion dryer can be used for fluids on paper, plastic (films), textiles and metals. As it heats mainly by conduction rather than convection, it is able to guarantee uniform heating of the fluid film and even vaporization of the fluid.

The diffusion dryers can be supplied as modular coating and drying trolleys, named 'boosters', which are easily integrable into existing machines. This helps to improve process efficiency and performance in comparison to conventional convection dryers.
