EMBOSSING MACHINE – TCP 150

The TCP 150 is the ideal system to produce advanced micro and nanostructures in materials such as a polymer
for a certain application.

  • Max quality area: 370 x 235 mm 5”-17”, screens with various aspect ratios and multi-cavity.
  • Pattern: advanced double-sided patterns with alignment, optional taper/wedge
  • Thickness: down to 0.10 mm
  • Cycle time: down to 30 seconds depending on application
  • Substrate: any thermal polymer, but most common are PC or PMMA.
  • Automatic input and output of plastic film. A roll of film substrate, with or without protective film, is placed in the system. Any protective film is automatically removed on both sides and the substrate film is deionized and vacuum cleaned. Film width of up to 450 mm is adapted for a 370 mm wide quality area.

TC TECH technology is based on a unique induction heating process, where only the
stamper is heated. The press and tool solution include several patented innovations that deliver
full pressure uniformity to achieve 100% replication.

By leveraging years of experience in materials research, the TCP 150 provides the necessary freedom through a
simplified design for volume production”. TCP 150 will offer excellent precision and reproducibility for a wide spectrum
of applications to industry and academia.

THE TOOL

THE TOOL

TC TECH lanserar uppgraderat verktyg för sitt produktionssystem som kan tillverka optiska filmer till 17-tums bildskärmar

Suitable for any polymer substrate up to 370mm x 235mm.

Our tool makes it possible to manufacture optical films and diffusers in the same production equipment to the three most common laptop screen sizes: 13, 15 and 17 inches.

Also smaller plastic parts, such as for microfluidics, also fit well in the tool. Multiple cavitities can then be utilized to enhance productivity.

Unique tools can be specially designed based on the customer’s specific requirements and wishes.

MASTERS AND STAMPERS

MASTERS AND STAMPERS

With 100% replication achievable down to nano level the precision and quality of the stamper becomes crucial. Stampers are mainly made in electroformed nickel or stainless steel depending on the type of pattern which is requested. A simple dot pattern can be made with laser or etching. Advanced micro lens arrays need a more complex manufacturing method including a lithography process (2D or 3D) to make a master for the production of the stamper in electroformed nickel.

To achieve the best result, the stamper should have a thickness between 0,6 mm to 1,0 mm with a good thickness uniformity. Maximum patterning area (quality area) is 370×235 mm. Stampers can normally be used for several hundred thousand cycles with adequate maintenance. A master for the electroforming process can be used to produce several identical stampers.
