Webinar:Vacuum coating of flexible substrates by Buhler Leybold Optics

November 17, 2020
60 minutes

The Leybold Optics Market Segment Flexible provides Roll-to-Roll vacuum-coating machines and processes for applications such as flexible photonic coatings, metalizing of electrical-film-capacitors and packaging -and specialty-packaging coatings. The Leybold Optics Market Segment Flexible operates at sites in Alzenau-Germany and Beijing-China.

Optical layers are a well-established demand in the vacuum coating industry, including applications for the coating of eye glasses or precision optics with anti-reflective layer stacks. Other applications range from decorative or reflective coatings of 3 dimensional objects in various sizes towards large scale low e coatings of architectural glass. Industrial trends in sustainability, demands in cost savings, special applications and high volume lead to an increase of those products using R2R vacuum coating equipment. The improvement of the vacuum coated layer adhesion for different packaging film types is an add on to this presentation given at the AIMCAL 2020 conference.
