MetalCoat 480

The perfect solution for UV inline coating

The MetalCoat 480 is ideally suited for the application of protective coatings within a UV printing line. As the most modern machine on the market for inline coating, it incorporates a whole host of cutting-edge technologies, including specialised coating application systems. The MetalCoat 480 rises to every challenge – irrespective of whether that means problematic coatings, demanding substrate qualities or increased speeds to match the overall line.

High speed – also for coating!

High productivity need not end at the delivery of the printing press. Through electrical synchronisation of the overall line and a consistent focus on maximised speed, the MetalCoat 480 is able to keep pace with the high production outputs of modern presses like the MetalStar 3 and Mailänder 280. Inline coating is no longer a bottleneck!

Innovative solutions of the MetalCoat 480:

  • Electrical synchronisation of the overall production line
  • Maximum coating precision thanks to dedicated drive technology
  • Laser-assisted cylinder positioning
  • Use of coating plate cylinder for UV coatings

Product Information

Dedicated drives for perfect coating results

The use of dedicated drives in the coating unit provides for absolute precision in the coating process. The speed of the coating cylinder is calculated on the basis of the measured cylinder circumference; a pneumatic clutch is no longer necessary. Even the tiniest variations in circumference are detected and compensated.
This precision yields perfect coating results, especially for spot coating or coating on thin metal sheets down to 0.100 mm.

Process-optimised coating application systems

The MetalCoat 480 is offered with two different coating application systems, and can thus promise an ideal solution for every customer application. The first of these configurations is a two-roller coating system which is especially suitable for the processing of conventionally dried coatings.
If UV coatings are to be applied, the MetalCoat 480 can be equipped with a FlexoCoat chamber blade system. In conjunction with the two-roller coating system, this implements an optimum set-up for the use of UV coatings.
