Krzysztof Pisera, Business Development Director at Scorpio, said “we see considerable potential for the roll-to-roll and spot coaters in our area, and Kompac’s coating solutions fit these expectations well. This partnership will allow us to provide our customers direct access to the latest UV and aqueous coating technology for off-line and online finishing production in the graphic arts industry.”

“The appointment of Scorpio will greatly enhance access to these systems in Europe, as they have an extensive background in offset, flexography, and digital printing - which is perfect for Kompac’s coating solutions,” said Thomas Hayes, President of Kompac Technologies. “Their extensive knowledge and history within the print industry was a key factor in the decision-making process and we believe that they will be a valuable partner within our distribution network.”

NEW FROM KOMPAC - The EZ Koat Anilox System

Problematic Coating is No Longer a Problem!

The Kompac EZ Koat series now offers a dual coating system: the standard system for conventional finishes like gloss and satin, and the new chambered anilox system for more difficult-to-run coatings like matte and soft touch.

UPGRADE YOUR EZ KOAT TO ANILOX FOR AS LOW AS $425/month!

Changeover between systems takes minutes! The standard system operates with no coating recirculation and two-minute coating cleanup. To apply a more complex finish, simply engage the anilox system, where air tight liquid handling allows for the application of matte and soft touch coatings with ease. External coating feed and return lines circulate coating directly from the coating bucket, with no internal tanks or lines.

Proprietary servo-driven technology delivers a quality finish, with the same compact footprint and low maintenance operation Kompac has always offered. System can be field installed to most existing EZ Koat models.

Kompac is pleased to announce they have recently partnered with Xeikon, and installed an EZ Koat 20 Plus at their new Itasca, IL., demonstration facility to show UV/aqueous coating capabilities when paired with Xeikon technology. Following the placement was the North American edition of Xeikon Café, where the team was invited to speak with both Xeikon owners and those considering acquiring a Xeikon press, about how the two technologies can be paired to create more efficient workflows and provide opportunities they may not have previously known about.  

“Taking part in the North American edition of the Xeikon Café allowed Kompac to work directly with printers, converters and suppliers who own Xeikon technology, and show them how our coating systems can work directly for them to. These solutions can be for both cut-sheet and web applications, and provides a host of opportunities for Xeikon users looking to increase their offering with UV/aqueous spot and flood coating,” said Chris DuFour, Director of Sales and Marketing. “Since the event, we’ve seen a great deal of interest from people who attended, with installs to take place before the new year.

“We value the partnership with Kompac in meeting the needs of our mutual customers.  Our label, packaging, and direct mail customers are looking for high quality UV and Aqueous systems, just like those offered by Kompac. We appreciated their presence at the inaugural Xeikon Café serving the North American market and look forward to their participation in future events and at our new Innovation Center.” said Donna Covannon, Director of Marketing NA at Xeikon.
