UC500

UC500 Coating and priming unit

The UC500 coating line is a universal coating/priming unit. It comes as an inline or offline version. Inline versions support all major digital presses. GM delivers the UC500 in both left- right and right-left run direction. Coatings are applied with a flexo graphic station and can be both UV and water based. The UC500 can be equipped with partial varnish, lamination, super gloss and other coating options. For priming synthetics a Corona system is needed. Water based coatings will need a closed chamber option in most cases. The UC500 can be delivered in a “full duplex version” that applies coatings to both sides of the web. The standard 4x1.6 meter UC500 has a more compact sister; The ultra compact UC500L. This light version measures only 2x1.6 meters.
