Dip Coaters

PAR Systems’ dip coaters apply hydrophilic coatings onto catheters, guidewires and other medical devices using semi- or fully-automated systems that have the smallest part lengths in the industry.

Our equipment is built to maximize efficiency in production and to work effectively in small spaces without bending devices. Semi- or fully-automated systems increase consistency and quality, equipment’s dual-batch platform increases throughput, and simple design and controls make for safe and easy use.

DC200 Fully Automated Dip Coating Machines

Our DC200 hydrophilic coating machine is an automated solution designed for the latest low particulate, low-friction lubricious coatings, with multi-coat and multi-solution capabilities. The DC200 uses a dual-batch platform with a load/dip/dry station in parallel with a dry/cure station to maximize production of the coating process.


With simplified loading, unloading, and a configurable and fully-automated process, the DC200 will protect your products.

The DC200 offers:

  • Automated handling and processing, which improves quality and consistency
  • Space-saving design to optimize production area without bending the device
  • Process flexibility via solution containment of multiple different coating solutions
  • Safe and efficient use
