With over three decades of success in inline coating;  the focus in the early years was surface protection but soon print buyers became increasingly more interested in the many other effects this technology offered  but at reasonable costs.  Matt, gloss and lustrous effects provided great advertising appeal – and better still could be all produced in one inline process. The ROLAND InlineCoater made its mark in history.


InLineCoater smart 

Inline coating has been popular for many years with packaging printers who coat almost every job. With more and more commercial printers interested in inline coating but only coating occasionally, the extra cost of a coating module with extended delivery could not always be justified. The ROLAND InlineCoater smart was specifically designed for occasional and simple applications of dispersion coating (protective and matt or gloss coating) on paper and light board, ideally suitable for the commercial print market

The printing unit equipped with the ROLAND InlineCoater smart can be changed over from printing to coating and vice versa within a reasonable time. It can be fitted to the last printing unit of all ROLAND 700 straight printing or perfecting presses. An IR/hot-air drying system specially modified to suit the standard delivery ensures good drying results.
