TEC Lighting (Booth 3435) is launching the XB18 UV coater, an 18-inch double-sided coater, engineered to interface inline with every popular digital press in the marketplace.
The XB18t is the first UV coater to apply UV coating to both sides of a sheet of paper simultaneously, reports the company. It also offers on-the-fly shifting between single-sided and double-sided coating for even greater flexibility. Coatings can be varied, allowing, for example, a satin coating on one side of the sheet and gloss on the other. The XB18 is scheduled to be introduced with handfed, auto-feeder, and inline model options.
The company is also exhibiting the XC14 MINI UV coater, offering a small production footprint, and the new Inteli-Coat 21-inch wide automated feeding UV coater.
