- Seal-free annular-piston pumps require little or no maintenance
- Pulsation-free pump operation for optimum coating quality
- Reduced makeready times when changing coatings thanks to high pumping volumes, reversible pumps, and a warm-water rinsing program
- Customizable washup programs
- Operated using controls on the unit or from the Prinect Press Center (via the CAN connection)
The Perfect Combination of Top-Quality Coatings and Fast Coating Changes.
Customers are increasingly asking for their products to be finished with high-gloss or special-effect coatings. If several coating changes are required in the course of a single day, flexible technology and a high level of automation are required to minimize makeready times. CoatingStar® makes it far quicker and easier to switch between different dispersion or UV coatings.
CoatingStar is a universal coating supply unit based on low-maintenance annular- piston pump technology and is suitable for a wide range of coatings. Its powerful pump enables even high viscosity coatings to be processed with ease. This power, combined with automatic rinsing programs, reduces makeready times by facilitating coating changes and cleaning of the coating system.
The ability to operate pumps both forward and backward enables coating residue left in hoses and the coating unit to be pumped back into the container. In addition to saving you time, this reduces your material costs. CoatingStar can also heat the coating. This improves the gloss level, in particular for UV coatings. Thanks to the pump design, CoatingStar benefits from pulsation-free operation. This means that hardly any foam is produced, leading to uniform distribution of the coating and an optimum coating result.
CoatingStar Compact is based on the same pumping principle as CoatingStar but does not include the heating function or automatic washup programs. Its small footprint means that it can be located close to the coating unit. This reduces the volumes in circulation, residues, and costs.
