TRESU Group’s iCoat provides link to a productive digital sheet-fed workflow alongside the HP Indigo 10000 at Graph Expo 2015

Friday, August 14, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Kolding, Denmark - TRESU Group will demonstrate the speed and flexibility of its iCoat post-print coating system for digitally printed sheet-fed applications at HP’s Graph Expo 2015 stand (1202), Chicago, 13-16 September 2015. 

At the show, the coater will operate near-line alongside – for the first time - the HP Indigo 10000, a 29.5in  format digital press designed for virtually all commercial print and light folding carton applications. The working demonstration gives a first-hand appreciation of the offset-equivalent quality, fast-changeovers and serialised data capabilities made possible by the combined print and coating operation.  

Either as a standalone unit, or integrated inline as part of a seamless single-pass print / converting operation, TRESU iCoat – which uses flexo technology - offers an effective way of protecting and enhancing aesthetic appeal of digitally printed sheet-fed substrates, in a simplified process with reduced logistics, material waste and handling.

Scott Hibbs, president, TRESU Americas, comments: “Analog printers increasingly recognize the need to invest in digital processes, to meet the need for variable data printing, personalised prints and short production runs. TRESU iCoat offers the basis for a productive and quality-assured digital workflow, with its fast throughput, diverse substrate compatibility and unique ability to apply UV- and water-based flood and spot varnish coating in tight registration.”    

Capable of running at a minimum of 5000 sheets / hour on board substrates between 180gsm (121.6 lb) and 500gsm (337.8 lb), TRESU iCoat also features corona treatment, quick-change sleeve technology and the ability to switch from UV to aqueous varnish within a few minutes.

End-user folding carton sectors benefiting from the iCoat technology include cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, retail promotional packaging and foods.
