CONTACTLESS HANDLING OF THIN FILMS USING AIR BEARINGS EXPLAINED

In current solar and flat panel industry, flexible substrates are used in inline roll to roll (R2R) processes; IBS PE investigated the behaviour of these flexible substrates on a (New Way) porous air bearing conveyor. Due to the flexibility in the substrate, local deformations might occur. The measurements on these deformations are discussed in this technote. Results show that deformation of < 5um can be achieved.

New also are the "Air Turns". These cylindrical bars of porous graphite are able to apply a thin film of air between the transported foil and the air bearing while the foil is making a turn.
