Faustel Develops Custom Coating Technology

Faustel Laminator technology

Every day Faustel helps companies produce life saving and life changing products in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Our recent collaboration with Iowa medical supplies manufacturer, Katecho, is one of those stories. The following article featured in Today’s Medical Developments details how our team of converting equipment engineers worked alongside Katecho to design custom web coating equipment for the production of unique hydrogel pads used by first responders to treat wounds in the field. After multiple rounds of testing and refinement, the combined efforts of Faustel and Katecho engineers produced a unique process capable of uniformly coating 23” wide swaths of material and processing the rolls of hydrogel material through to its finished form.
