Applied manufactures a portfolio of systems for mass production of barrier flexible packaging including metallic, oxide or transparent barrier layers deposited onto most flexible packaging and flexible electronics substrates, in-vacuum by roll-to-roll web processes. These processes include evaporation by electrically heated ceramic boat; inductively heated crucibles; electron beam evaporation; or sputter deposition.
Applications in the security market require electron beam (e-beam) evaporation. This technology gives improved control of key characteristics such as uniformity of the coating layer thickness and it also allows more options for the coating medium. These characteristics are useful for protecting brands, products, currency and certificates through the enablement of holographics on pre-embossed substrates and color shift effects, improving security and stopping counterfeiting.

As an alternative solution to the offline de-metallizing process, in-chamber (inline printing) roll-to-roll systems print grey-scale and patterned structures on a variety of substrates, eliminating a process step while producing differentiated packaging with unique aesthetics.
Broad portfolio of equipment solutions, SmartWebTM , SmartWebTM WF and TopBeamTM are provided for wide variety of flexible electronics industry. For touch panel displays, “index-matching” layer stacks of high and low index dielectronics are reactively sputtered onto to substrate, which create “invisible pattern” on TCO/ITO film product as industry required.
