NEW FROM KOMPAC: Chambered Anilox for Soft Touch & Matte Coatings

Why Only Run One Coating, When You Can Run Many?

Users can now easily run a full spectrum of coatings including: high gloss, gloss, semi gloss, satin, matte, soft touch and more - all on one machine! The NEW Kompac Chambered Anilox Roller System makes it easy to run more difficult-to-run coatings like matte and soft touch. Changeover between systems takes minutes! 

For Quality Soft Touch and Matte Coating Finishes

The Kompac Chambered Anilox Roller System allows users to easily apply soft touch and matte coatings to sheets or web. The air tight handling of coating runs aqueous, matte and soft touch coating without drying and breaking down.

  • Chambered anilox co-exists with standard coating unit

  • Ideal for HP Indigo, Xerox, Canon, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, Xeikon, Offset, and more!

  • Available for the EZ Koat 15+, 20+ and 30+ flood coating systems in web or cut sheet configuration

  • Available for the Kwik Finish 32 flood and spot coating system

  • Can be retrofitted into existing EZ Koat Plus models

A full spectrum of finishes. Made easy.

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.
