Dip Coating is the precision controlled immersion and withdrawal of a substrate into a reservoir of liquid for the purpose of depositing a thin-film. A device known as a dip coater is used in order to employ this technique. At its’ core, this device consist of a computer controlled linear stage in which allows setting the upper and lower substrate resting positions, immersion/withdrawal speed, submersion period.

3/8/2016 — Giving the basic design of Dip Coater, we set out to build one which uses of many of the SCK-200 components. Well after a months of development, and countless design and code changes we finally have a prototype to test, the DCK-100.  The next steps will be to better integrate the precision parts and movements involved inorder to go into production.  

Check out this video of the DCK-100 in action.
