Abstract

Michael Bresnahan Abstract: Dip Coater

Spin coaters and Dip coaters are industrial machines important for manufacturing thin films of many varieties. These machines can cost several thousand dollars, which is not affordable for everybody. A dip coater will be built from cheap and common materials, and it will be useful for research and educational purposes. Currently the housing for the machinery has been built out of Plexiglas and machine screws. The main mechanism, which includes a drive wheel and a shaft for holding the sample, has been 3-D printed, and the motor was purchased on the internet. The next step is to mount the motor to the inside of the case on a mounting bracket, which will anchor to a plexiglass shelf within the case. Then the drive wheel will be attached to the drive shaft of the motor and the instrument will be ready for assembly.
