IDCoater - Semi-Automatic Dip Coater-Dryer

The IDCoater, IDC's Semi-Automatic Dip Coater, is a high performance and cost-effective applicator for primary liquid Photo Resist. Its small footprint makes it ideal for work in the yellow room. The IDCoater is self-contained, including resist coating and drying, all done automatically in a class 1000 internal environment. Manual load and unload subsystems are designed for convenient operation. Download brochure.


State of the Art Coating Solution

The IDCoater is the obvious choice for state ofthe art liquid photoresist coating of rigid andflex panels for fine lines.

Cleanliness and Coating-Consistency

IDC's compact dip coater-dryer features a fully automatic internal processing designed to coat up to 120 panels (22”x28”) per hour in a self-contained environment that ensures a class 1000 level of cleanliness or more. While easy to operate, the IDCoater accomplishes a uniquely high standard of uniformity and consistency of the coating managed by a variable parameter control. A proprietary circulation and filtering system enables the achievement of superior levels of cleanliness.


The IDCoater has been optimized for a variety of photo-resist liquids available on the market, based on its enhanched control capabilities over physical parameters such as: dryer temp.; resist heating and cooling; viscosity metering and solvent supplementing; dipping velocity; deep filtration, etc.

Easy Operation

The IDCoater's small footprint and simple batch-mode operation enable easy integration in the product line. The vertical load and unload subsystems are designed for convenient, safe and efficient panel handling.

Competitive Edge

The IDCoater's unique integrated coating and drying design delivers high throughput at low cost, making it one of the most cost-effective liquid resist coaters on the market.
