Matti Primer / Coater Unit

Inkjet priming / coating and varnish solution

The Matti Coater unit improves the surface finishing and mechanical specification of substrates with the correct evaluated fluid / coating with several processing devices. It can be placed directly as a pre- or post-process unit used inline or offline. The multifunctional coating of emulsion, colours and varnish gives (digitally printed) documents their own excellent personal effect either single width or duplex in one machine. The Matti Coater unit is a flexible construction with either two die slots or coating / treating units in one machine mounted in one chassis and facilitates different drying systems depending on the application including cold UV, IR, high frequency drying and convection hot air drying / cold air treating, etc. The unit can be configured to be part of a complete printing system, ideally suited for security (finishing) applications, Company Logos, identity flashes, signatures and coating.

Surface Finishing Solution for: Carbonless coating Inks and Overprint Varnishes Security Inks and Coatings Speciality Adhesives.

Applications with lacquer- materials are also attainable: Vision panels without mechanical cuttings, watermarks, numbers and logos.

Please note:

This unit is particularily well suited to apply primer inline or offline in digital inkjet environments. Primer fluids can be applied precisely and the drying and chilling sections in the unit prepare the paper to directly enter into a digital press. Different fluids (primer, cleaning fluid and waste fluid) are handled automatically.

Using a primer unit to apply primer before inkjet printing has several benefits:
- Paper Surface: Evening out the surface of the paper to achieve better print quality
- Color Gamut: A better color gamut is achieved due to pigments staying on the surface of the paper
- Better economics: Less pigments are required in the ink, making the ink less expensive
- Uptime: Paper dust is eliminated from the paper surface and results in better uptime and reliability of the inkjet system and less wear on the print heads

Interfaces to the subsequent machinery can be implemented according to the specific requirements.
