Established in 1988, nTact is the dba for FAS Holdings Group, LLC, and is engaged in the design, development, manufacture, integration, sale and service of advanced, high-precision slot die deposition (coating) systems and integrated process solutions for the display, microelectronics, alternative energy, and other thin-film dependent industries. The company enjoys worldwide recognition as a pioneer in the development of fluid handling and slot die coating equipment for a wide range of high technology applications, and is the inventor of the extrusion or “spinless” coating, a slot die based technology that has become the standard deposition method for the flat panel display (FPD) industry.
nTact was founded in Dallas, Texas, and was initially focused on the development of an innovative and proprietary dual-stage pump for dispensing high purity polymers. The Company successfully introduced a line of patented fluid handling products, delivering these products worldwide to major semiconductor manufacturers. In the early 1990s, using its proven dispense technology as a foundation, nTact began the development of its Slot Die coating (extrusion coating) technology, identifying it at the time as “FAS-Coat,” for thin film microelectronics applications. The development work of this slot die based coating technology occurred in the early stages of the FPD industry and eventually became the de facto standard for large area processing and LCD manufacturing.
nTacts proprietary coating technology has made it possible for a single technology platform to provide the essential coating / deposition operations in key markets such as Flat Panel Display (including LCD, OLED, PLED, Flexible, and Touch Screen), Solid State Lighting (OLED / PLED), Photovoltaic (Organic PV, CIGS, CdTe and other thin film applications), RFID, ICC, Semiconductor, and others including biomedical and fuel cells.
