Microsharp has installed a precision microstructure coating line at its Oxfordshire manufacturing unit.
The new unit gives Microsharp the capacity to manufacture a wide range of UV cured, nano and micro structured films on a continuous reel to reel basis.
The unit is a highly flexible machine intended to be used for new film development projects and cost effective short production runs. This facility will allow Microsharp to design and develop new structures and reduce its project time-lines.
The machine will also be made available to customers to conduct their own development and production projects.
Some of the early development projects for which the line will be used include optical out-coupling film for OLED's, Fresnel lens structures for Solar Concentrators, prismatic Structures for clients in the Defense Display & Security Industries and production of nanostructured self cleaning films.
