Integrated Biometrics Implements Ultra-Precise PRISM-800 To Apply RepelFlex® MBED™ Antimicrobial Coating on Biometric Fingerprint Scanners
Boston, MA USA – June 22, 2021 – Integrated Biometrics (IB), the world leader in mobile, FBI-certified biometric scanners, Ultrasonic Systems, Inc. (USI), a leader in ultrasonic spray coating systems, and NBD Nanotechnologies (NBD Nano), the surface coating experts, are pleased to announce the combination of an innovative material and application process that enables a higher standard of protection of IB’s biometric fingerprint scanners.
“Protecting the health of the individual utilizing our biometric products is one of our top priorities. We have continued to innovate and establish a market leadership position by partnering with USI and NBD to ensure the highest quality of protection as compared to conventional coatings and applications processes,” said Doug Loy, President Integrated Biometrics.
The PRISM-800 is a large format, high-speed X-Y-Z spray coating system designed for the thin, precise uniform application of coatings and suspensions for high-volume, high-throughput production requirements. RepelFlex MBED, an ultra-thin, transparent coating, is designed to provide outstanding antimicrobial, anti-scratch, and anti-stain protection.
“Innovation in materials and application processes allows equipment manufacturers the ability to upgrade their products to ensure the precise implementation of coatings that can reduce the growth of odor or stain causing bacteria,” said Deckard Sorensen, CEO of NBD Nano. “Our collaborative approach facilitated rapid product innovation and speed to market.”
“USI’s proprietary, nozzle-less ultra-Thin Coating Application Technology (tCAT) provides a more uniform and repeatable coating application than conventional spray nozzles,” said Stuart Erickson, President at USI. USI’s ultrasonic spray head is a solid-state device with no moving parts. It atomizes the coating liquid using ultrasonic energy and then shapes the spray into a flat, sheet-like pattern using low pressure air flow. The spray head is “cleaned in place.” No intricate adjustments are required for setup and no disassembly is required for cleaning.
