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

The byko-drive is available with a vacuum plate (byko-drive V) or glass plate with clamp (byko-drive G).

The byko-drive has two user selectable speeds:
- 10 mm/sec . complies with ISO method 11998
- 1 in/sec . same speed setting as the BYK-Gardner Mechanical Drive

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.

- User selectable start and stop positions to accommodate different chart sizes
- Power assist carriage return for ease of operation
- Drip pan for faster cleanup
- Weight and bar fixture for consistent pressure on applicator devices
- Small footprint to save on counter space
- Easy to operate user controls
- Adjustable push bar gap clearances
