NON-CONTACT FILM HANDLING USING AIR BEARINGS

Air bearings are providing breakthrough enabling technology by acting directly on substrates. Flexible films flow over non-turning “air turns” rather than contact rollers and enables non-contact handling of substrates.

Viscous shear in air films is used for tension control between “air turns” and across the web. High pressure boundary layer scrubbing for effective cleaning and drying with convective film coefficients allowing rapid precision temperature control. Air bearing seals isolate process environments.
