Characteristics

The GM Photo Coater is designed for the UV coating of photo paper with superior quality. It also provides UV coating for photo books, labels, stickers, and other roll-feed products.

The UV guarantees that professional quality photos printed on paper using silver halide technology get the optimal protection and required gloss level. UV coating ensures a brilliant appearance and enriches the colors. It prevents the colors and images from fading and provides excellent resistance against weather, UV light, abrasion, sweat, and other elements.

The machine has a compact footprint and is easy to operate. The helical gears used in the coater ensure perfect coating quality due to the minimum level of vibration. The drive train in the coater is completely servo driven offering low maintenance servo-driven tension control and good registration. The coating station uses the flexographic principle, so the actual coating thickness can be controlled very arcuately saving varnish costs.

The GM Photo Coater features the newest electronics, a newly-designed control panel, and a user-friendly interface. The graphical touch screen shows the machine configuration, spindle directions, and web-up. The machine can be equipped with optional modules allowing spot varnish, lamination, cold foiling, and slitting. The large 600 mm bottom rewinder offers fewer stopovers.

GM Photo Coater can run offline and in line with photobook manufacturing equipment and digital printers.

 

Options:
  • The UV Flexo varnish station with optional registration allows a higher level of embellishment with spot and Super Gloss varnish.
  • GM SmartCrush - An ultra-quick set knife system, allowing fast and precise setting of each crush knife – also while running.
  • GM Mini Buffer - easy switching between inline and offline mode. It synchronizes the speed between the digital press and the finisher.
