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 gets the optimal protection and required gloss level. UV coating ensures a brilliant appearance and enriches the colours. It prevents the colours 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 user-friendly interface. The graphical touch screen shows the machine configuration, spindle directions and web-up. The machine can be equipped in optional modules allowing spot varnish, lamination, cold foiling and slitting. The large 600 mm bottom rewinder offers less stopovers.
GM Photo Coater can run offline and inline with photobook manufacturing equipment and digital printers.
