1 Injection Molding
The MOLDPRO/2 all-electric molding machine is designed for the economic production of CDs and DVDs. Its direct drive concept guarantees highest precision and repeatability to ensure disc quality according to the specifications issued by the Philips Intellectual Property & Standards Organization. The MOLDPRO/2 molding machine is equipped with its own computer control unit and is fully integrated into SPACELINE II and interfaced with PLC.

Other qualified DVD molding machines can also be integrated upon request.

2 Spin Cooler Unit
Provides fast and homogenous temperature reduction on the discs. Allows handling and managing of the disc halves without deviation and birefringence impact.

3 Input Conveyor
An adjustable clean airflow device results in best pre-process conditions for every single substrate.

4 SINGULUS V Metallizer with TMD Sputter Layer Measurement
With more than 6000 units, the latest Singulus metallizer has proven its reliability and efficiency with our major customers. Both metalizers in the SPACELINE II are equipped with SMART CATHODES®, allowing the use of a large range of sputter materials.
