M2 Launches the SQR 3
M2 Engineering has announced the SQR 3,
a system for inline manufacturing of recordable DVD and CD optical
discs, including DVD-R and CD-R. For CD-R production, the SQR
3 is equipped with three manufacturing modules, and the cycle
time can be decreased to less than two seconds per disc. For inline
DVD-R production, the SQR 3 is fitted with three molding machines
and two manufacturing modules. The device is also equipped with
M2’s CenterBond technology, which allows DVD-R discs to be bonded
all the way to the center hole. The SQR 3 also features M2’s SpinCure
technology, which helps to achieve a uniform bonding layer.
