About Kalpana Systems

Kalpana Systems is a high-tech startup that was founded in Rotterdam in March 2021. Kalpana has a unique design for a machine that uses the spatial Atomic Layer Deposition (s-ALD) technology. ALD is the superior method for the deposition of thin film coatings where a perfect layer quality is required. Currently the main issue is that all available s-ALD machines have major drawbacks, mainly related to speed and uptime. Our design will drastically change this. Kalpana is on a mission to produce the first commercially feasible roll-to-roll s-ALD solution to be used in a variety of industries, helping these industries advance to the next level. These industries include rapidly growing sustainable markets such as (flexible) solar cells and Li-ion batteries for electric vehicles.
