The byko-drive Auto matic Applicator is an economical film applicator that improves the consistency of draw downs. When more than one operator is drawing down the same coat­ing or ink, the dry film appearance will vary because of differ­ent draw down techniques. Draw down speed and pressure on the applicator tool will impact the result. Film thickness, gloss, opacity, and color can vary with differing draw down techniques.

The byko-drive is available with a vacuum plate or glass plate with clamp. Applicator bars, U-shaped bars, applicator frames, film casting knifes, and wire-wound rods are accept­able applicators. The byko-drive has a compact design con­sisting of a light-weight aluminum chassis and impact resis­tant thermo-plastic cover.
