Multicoater

The K303 Multicoater is used to make accurate and reproducible prints and coatings of a wide range of products on many different substrates. The heads illustrated are fully interchangeable in a matter of minutes providing Gravure, Flexo and exceptionally accurate surface coatings and laminations. One can detect the smallest difference in products because two or more samples may be printed or coated side by side under identical conditions. As a standard gravure proofer it's often used in laboratories for quality control on all ink/substrate combinations for color comparison but also for determining factors such as printability and adhesion.

Parker Print-Surf (Single Head)

Developed from Dr. John Parker's original method, the Parker Print-Surf (PPS) is designed to accurately measure the surface roughness of sheet materials under conditions similar to those experienced during the printing process. The sample is clamped between a precision engineered measuring head and a specifically designed backing assembly. It provides the information you need to avoid time-consuming, costly printing problems.
