Applications

MEC can propose the optimum specifications for your company based on our abundant track record, as we have delivered a large number of products such as equipment for use in solvent-based TAC film applications, and the equipment for PI, PP, PVC, PC, and water-soluble PVA applications.

Single belt casting machine

Films and sheets are produced using precision gear pumps, specially designed T-dies, and an automatic lip gap adjustment device. The equipment utilizes a super-mirror-polished belt developed to improve width precision.

Hot air simulation analysis

(Improved evenness of chamber-blowing wind speed)
MEC determines the optimum design by analyzing the airflow from the hot air chamber installed close to the belt of the belt machine, and then by deciding how to ensure the evenness of airflow within the belt machine, and identifying the best blower shape.

Film drying simulation

MEC determines the optimum design by utilizing simulations to analyze the dryness of films on the belt machine, and then by identifying the optimum belt length and drying temperature.

Longer belt life

MEC achieves excellent high-speed meander control through the use of a belt as long as 160 mL thanks to our proprietary frame structure, controlling system, and analysis technology. This flexible meander control contributes to achieving a longer life for the belt and the equipment as a whole.

DDL onsite welding

Our proprietary technological development has made onsite direct diode laser (DDL) welding possible, which is considered difficult to perform under normal conditions.
