Coating

We took over the medium sized coating machine from ILFORD IMAGING SWITZERLAND (prev. CIBA GEIGY FOTOCHEMIE), the “Mother Of Cibachrome”.

The machine is just large enough to produce films and papers yet small enough not to build up excess overhead in todays market size.

We coat with a bit more than 20 Inch width and can cut product up to 20×24 Inch.

Thousands of analog and inkjet materials have been developed on our machine in the past, Cibachrome being just one of them.

We test ran the machine in march 2015 and we upgraded it to coating specs during the summer.
