MILTON, N.Y., June 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQX: SOTK) is pleased to announce the recent sale of micronic thin film spray coating process equipment to a major global food manufacturer with numerous plants overseas. The sale is valued at $360,000.
The manufacturer has the potential of purchasing an additional system every 12 to 18 months as part of a planned multi-year roll out of the new technology for all of its manufacturing sites.
The highly specialized application developed in this project is a first of its kind and uses state of the art technology whose details are covered by a non-disclosure agreement with the customer. The new application incorporates ultrasonic technology, which allows for higher transfer efficiencies with precision uniform coatings. The application is capable of applying minute quantities of liquids uniformly over food products, which are configured on a large area moving web. The advantage of this system is its ability to apply accurate and repeatable coating quality, unmatched by any generic pressure assisted spraying systems.
According to Dr. Joseph Riemer, Vice President of Food Business Development, "This new opportunity, together with our continued expansion into the food safety area where we have been collaborating with manufacturers of high speed industrial scale meat slicers, helps to continue our growth and progress in our food industry initiatives in fiscal year 2016."
