Autoprint Fine Coat 80 AX
It is equipped with 3 roller coating systems including a Chrome plated Anilox Roller and a doctor blade similar to a chamber doctor for better control of UV Varnish solution. It works on the letterpress dry offset principle with 2 cylinder system. The first cylinder is a plate cum blanket cylinder. We can use a blanket for doing full or flood coating, whereas Flexo or photopolymer plate is 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 areas.
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 do we have to take a big risk on a converted coater when you are getting a brand new Spot UV Coating machine along with a dryer combined warranty with a marginal difference in cost? The Dryer unit also carries a One-year spare 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, and packaging companies all over India and abroad as of March 2018.
Our Spot UV Coating Machine can handle a minimum of 60 gsm chromo art mirror coated labels and paper up to 450 gsm board of size up to 22”x32”. The maximum speed is 6000 sheets per hour. It is ideal for large packaging printers as well as for starting Job work Units for UV Coating, Aqueous Coating, Spot Coating, Post Press process Jobs in a suitable location for serving clusters of printers. It is an ideal replacement upgrade solution for conventional manual feed or auto-feed roller coater and your old used dryer.
Apart from packaging, UV coating is also now popular among Publishing houses, where it is slowly replaced with UV-coated Book Cover pages instead of lamination Since lamination is a slow process that cannot match with the products made in offset presses. The creasing issues of book cover pages are also eliminated by using creasable varnishes and by the use of proper creasing tools in the perfect binding unit.
