The partnership with nTact gives M
Braun the ability better to support and advance research in coating applications under inert gas
(PRWEB) March 30, 2013
In continuing successful business relationships, The Worldwide Leader in Slot Die Coating/
Extrusion Equipment, nTact, would like to announce the formalization of their partnership withThe M Braun Group.
This new partnership will allow both companies to offer a complete system solution -- offering slot die coaters from nTact, and gloveboxes from The M Braun Group. M Braun is the global leader in inert glovebox systems. Customers looking for customized inert slot die coating solutions will benefit, by being able to purchase a complete, high-quality system, with factory integration.
Standardized and custom combined systems will be available, marrying nTact’s premier
coating nRad and nRad2, and custom coaters to M Braun’s line of Gloveboxes. These
various combinations allow the highest quality inert coating to be available for all stages of development, from research through full scale production. The combined product of the nTact/M Braun partnership will be available for global distribution, including the US, Europe and throughout Asia. Any interested parties will be given first hand demonstration at one of either company’s laboratories. Those looking for highly specialized or innovative inert coating solutions are also invited to apply for custom demonstration to show how nTact’s innovative slot die coating technologies along with M Braun’s Gloveboxes can be customized to suit their needs at any scale.
Both companies are excited to work together, and will continue to offer the top-quality products customers expect. nTact and The M Braun Group know that this partnership will help both companies grow to better serve the evolving coating needs of many industries, particularly OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) producers, including display and solid state lighting, and the photovoltaic industry.
“After several years of collaborating on various projects with M Braun, the market leader
in inert gas systems, we are delighted to formalize our partnership to develop and deliver fully integrated process solutions. By combining our nRad family of coaters with M Braun’s gloveboxes, we can offer a proven process platform for the development and scale-up of OLED, photovoltaic, and related devices, based on high performance, high efficiency solution-processed layers” said Greg Gibson, Chief Business Development Officer at nTact.
Martin Reinelt, President and CEO of the M Braun Group, added: “The M Braun Group is very excited about the opportunity to add the nTact slot die coating line to our comprehensive set of OLED, OPV, and SSL research and production solutions. The partnership with nTact gives M Braun the ability better to support and advance research in coating applications under inert gas processing environments.”
