Machine for lab scale and pilot plant production with potential:

Scalable. Validatable. Extendable. Reproducible.

Machine for lab scale and pilot plant production


Versatile equipment and a wide range of coating and printing systems make Coatema products the choice of today‘s solutions for coating applications in the pharmaceutical and medical market.

From Lab2Fab is the vision of Coatema and with this small R2R unit we offer a number of very precise and efficient coating systems combined with state of the art drying solutions for your markets. The unit can be additionally equipped with printing, lamination stations and slitting, which makes the system a modular and economical approach for small scale production.

Results from this modular and compact unit can be easily transferred to bigger pilot and production lines. The advantage of short test runs with just a minimum use of chemistry and materials needed to produce sophisticated products, leads to a very economical production and shortens the development time of your products.

Reproducible results are offered with the efficient control system and the modular design of the overall unit. Combined with the Optima solution you get the complete value chain for medical and pharmaceutical products out of one hand.

All processes relevant to the product can be developed at lab scale and scaled up to large batch manufacturing. Output can be matched to demand while maintaining the highest standard of process safety.
Extendable The modular construction of the machine allows a high level of customization. The base machine can be upgraded from an intermittent motion to a continuous motion process. Individual process stations or even entire machine modules, such as pouching, can be integrated at any time.
All production parameters are stored in recipes.
