According to one aspect, the invention provides a table for compensating deformation in flexible foils (1) The table comprises a supportive base (2) and a deformation compensation system (3). This system comprises a plurality of movable elements (4), supported by the base (2), wherein the movable elements form a surface for supporting the flexible foil. The movable elements comprise clamps (6) for clamping the foil (5). The movable elements (4) are individually movable parallel to the surface for supporting the foil, so as to stretch the clamped foil into a predefined shape. The table for compensating deformation in flexible foils may be used in a manufacturing process of flexible functional foils to compensate deformation of the foils during sequential patterning.
