Geometric limitations?

Utilizing ink-jet technology to avoid masking and the other pitfalls of the more common coating technologies is great.  Having designed several polycarb product display lenses I would have liked to use this process, the article does not mention if the current process can only handle flat parts.  Since it is ink-jet I guess this is the case.  Perhaps the next step will be 3d spray head applications.

This is a fascinating process. Are there any process characteristics available for it? Basically, what are the cycle times for a part , and is it based on part size?

Who's using Vuecoat?

Sounds like a promising abrasion coating process, particularly in that it can minimize design and manufacturing efforts via its ability to selectively coat specific components or areas. Could you provide any examples of current products that employ Vuecoat?
