CoatingStar - Fast Coating Change and Top-Quality Results
Fast Make-Readies when Changing Coatings
More and more companies are offering their clients not only straight printing but also finishing. To do this, they need to ensure optimum coating quality while remaining very flexible. Many printers - depending on what their customers want and their job scheduling - have to change the coatings used several times a day. These can range from high-glossy water-based varnish across UV coating to metallic finishes during the course of a single day. Profitable production is only possible if this can be done quickly.
Heidelberg's CoatingStar is the flexible universal coating supply unit you need. It is designed to be connected to a conventional coating unit with two-roller system, chamber doctor blade, or Flexokit. The entire spectrum of coatings - from water-based coatings across UV to special-effect coatings - can be handled by a single system.
Thanks to a new annular-piston pump, the first time this technology has been used in the printing industry, CoatingStar can pump washup solution into the coating unit at rates up to 1,000 liters an hour. This quickly cleans the hoses and coating fountain.
