May 3, 2018 | by Alfredo Fenoglio, Technical Director of Media Manufacturing Technology, and Jason Payne, Chief Technology Officer, Medical Films and Printing Solutions, Carestream Heath, Inc.
Accurate solution preparation and mixing processes are mandatory in high-precision, roll-to-roll coating operations. To ensure success, the liquid fed to an applicator must be homogeneous in composition, properties and temperature. Controlling these parameters batch to batch is also very important. Thus having a firm understanding of fluid dynamics and mixing parameters is critical to delivering a uniformly coated product with the expected performance characteristics.

February 10, 2017 | by William D. Devine, Aaron R. Clapp and Jason A. Payne, Carestream Contract Manufacturing
Transparent conductive films for touch screen applications using silver nanowire electrodes have been widely researched over the past few years. Silver nanowires are considered especially promising as transparent conductive film electrodes because silver has the highest conductivity of any metal. Films comprised of silver nanowires can also be mechanically flexible and possess attractive optical properties such as low haze and high transparency.
