The Byko-drive XL automatic film applicator from Paul N. Gardner is designed to perform drawdowns of coatings and inks in programmable speeds ranging from 5 to 500 mm/sec. (in 1-mm/sec. increments). The dry film appearance is impacted by both drawdown speed and pressure on the applicator tool. Interchangeable weights apply pressure across the entire length of the applicator for a consistent film thickness. The push bar is designed to accommodate a variety of wire-rod sizes, applicator bars, applicator frames and film casting knives.

The unit’s touchscreen display allows easy programming of operating parameters including traverse speed, start position and stroke length. Six memory locations are available for saving routine settings.
