Special “Removable Center Roll” Feature for quick removal of Center Rubber
Emergency Stop Button mounted on opposite side base plate allowing easy
access to E-stop buttons from either side of machine.
Excellent for performing tests onto small samples,
hand sheets, and can be used for continuous web coating. Can also be
used to perform saturations, 2 roll pressure, and 3 roll differential
Applies a uniform, consistent, and repeatable
coating laydown every time.
- Used for applying coatings onto papers, paperboards, films, foils,
- Applies coatings down to as low as 1/10 of 1 micron (.000004”).
High end thickness varies depending upon the viscosity of the coating,
gravure pattern, and the type of substrate.
Coat weight is controlled by the specific laser
engraved gravure pattern in the bottom gravure roll and by the amount
of air pressure that is applied to the top and center rolls (bottom
roll can be changed within 5 minutes to utilize various gravure rolls,
rubber rolls, and chrome rolls).
Top roll is 3” diameter x 12” wide standard
polished chrome, and is air regulated in order to vary the amount of
downward pressure onto the center roll.
Center roll is 6” diameter x 12” wide standard
neoprene rubber with air regulated vertical pressure for applying
downward pressure onto the bottom roll, complete with dial indicators
for adjusting the vertical position of the center roll in order to set
a gap between the center and bottom rolls if desired. Center roll is
driven with a variable speed motor and controller with digital rpm
tachometer capable of approximately 30 fpm (available in 110 or 220 Volt).
Bottom roll is 6” diameter x 12” wide laser
engraved gravure, driven with a variable speed motor and controller
with digital rpm tachometer (available in 110 or 220 Volt, 30 rpm
- A Stainless Steel coating pan mounts underneath the bottom roll for
holding the coating mixture. The bottom roll rotates in this coating
and picks up the coating mixture, and then the pneumatic wiper blade
meters the excess coating from the bottom roll. The coating that
remains on the bottom roll then transfers directly to the center roll
which in turn transfers the coating directly to the substrate as it is
fed between the center and top rolls.
- All control features mount inside a control panel that also
contains an Emergency Stop button in order to shut off all power to
the machine by simply pressing down on the button.
- Different types of rubber for the center roll including E.P.D.M.,
Silicone, Viton, Hypalon, Buna-N, Urethane, Polysulfide, and Natural
Rubber are also available (prices vary).
- The customer’s choice of one (1) gravure roll up to 180 linescreen
is included in the price of the offset gravure lab coater. If a
linescreen of more than 180 is needed, then prices vary.
- Delivery time: 10 - 12 weeks
Instructions for use:
Pour the coating mixture into the stainless steel coating pan that resides underneath the bottom gravure roll. Apply the desired amount of air pressure to the wiper blade which meters the coating from the bottom gravure roll. Apply the desired amount of air pressure to the top roll and center roll. Set the desired speed of both the center roll and the bottom roll by observing the corresponding tachometers. As the bottom roll rotates in the coating pan, the wiper blade meters the excess coating from the bottom gravure roll and then transfers the coating directly to the center rubber roll. The center roll in turn transfers the coating directly to the substrate as you feed the substrate between the center and top rolls.
