Excellent. And I love the use of wood in engineering products!

If my memory of the Ilford factory tour is correct, that is a cascade coater. It is possible to inject several emulsions at the same time which flow over each other before coating the film with multi-layers. The one in the link looks like it is set up for a single emulsion at the moment though.

The text does say that this is a prototype head so perhaps there are plans to make a multi-layer coating head.

This looks similar in size to the pilot machine Ilford use to test batches of emulsion before running it on their full size machine - which is huge!
