The line includes a 22-m, seven-zone flotation and roll support dryer. The machine line features automatic turrets at the primary unwind and winder for continuous running, a secondary unwind for wet and dry laminations, corona treatment, web cleaning, and UV curing.

Demonstrations during the open house included high-speed coating via a smooth roll coater as well as automatic high-speed transfers at the unwind and winder.
