Entry-level | FOM nanoRC


The FOM nanoRC is the ideal entry point to begin the scalable coating of functional thin films and devices. The FOM nanoRC has been designed to mimic the complex coating processes achieved on large-scale roll-to-roll machines while requiring a fraction of the cost and physical footprint. By leveraging years of experience in materials research and slot-die coating, the FOM nanoRC provides users with a simple route for precise, reproducible, and scalable thin-film production from any solution or slurry-based precursor.

Easy to use

The FOM nanoRC is a lightweight, cost-efficient, easy-to-use, precision instrument for testing slot-die coating of solution-processable materials onto flexible substrates.

Replacing spin coating

While spin-coating is often used for the fabrication of thin films, it lacks compatibility with industry standards due to its substrate size restraints, the difficulty of batch processing and the high percentage of material waste. Based on many years of research in functional organic materials and close collaboration with world-class research partners and clients worldwide, the FOM nanoRC has been designed to mimic the coating process of large-scale roll-to-roll machines based on the slot-die coating at a laboratory scale, allowing for high throughput experimental design. The FOM nanoARC enables researchers in industry and academia to develop, or transfer, their knowledge in thin films into slot-die coating fabrication protocols with an entry-level investment.


Whether you are doing fundamental research or developing a new process for your product, the FOM nanoRC provides direct and relevant proof of scalability, yet on the smallest scale, thereby, avoiding the high material consumption and hassle associated with larger size pilot lines.
