The article focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of implementing new technology and hardware innovations in the laboratory or pilot coating and drying processes. The use of die, blade or Mayer rod have been anticipated to provide an inexpensive hardware cost, and a tool test the coatings. However, the use of the die, blade or Mayer rod do not produce quality coating, uncontrollable drying, and poor reproducibility.
