Autoprint Fine Coat 80 AX can perform full and spot (UV & Aqueous) coating on thin and thick papers at a speed of maximum 6000 sheets per hour. It is designed to meet the growing demand for a reliable and precision coater for large format printers and packaging units. 

Autoprint Fine Coat 80 AX is an offline sheetfed Flexo Rotary Automatic UV and Aqueous Coater with UV and IR Dryer.  It can perform Full or Flood coating, Spot coating and Spot-not window coating of both UV based and water based (Aqueous) coatings.  It is equipped with 3 roller coating system including Chrome plated Anilox Roller and doctor blade similar to chamber doctor for better control of UV Varnish solution.  It works on letter press dry offset principle with 2 cylinder system.  First cylinder is plate cum blanket cylinder.  We can use blanket for doing full or flood coating, whereas Flexo or photo polymer plate to be used for doing spot coating.  We can achieve spot-not window coating by using stripped blankets wherever coating is not required.  Spot not window coating is mainly used by pharma carton manufacturers to avoid coating on coding and pasting area. It is a brand new dedicated Coater with specially designed grippers and stainless steel coater unit and other parts to withstand the highly corrosive UV Varnish solution.  Hence it is far better and advantageous than the used or converted coater in the long run.  Why we have to take big risk on converted coater when you are getting a brand new machine along with dryer combined warranty with marginal difference in cost?  The Dryer unit also carries One year spares warranty and 1000 hrs replacement warranty for the UV and IR Lamps.  The Lamps and reflectors are of high quality standards imported from Germany.  Autoprint has installed more than 280 machines of Fine Coat 80 in all leading pharma, packaging companies all over India and in abroad as of March 2018.
