ExcelCoat ZRB

Semi Automated Offline/Inline Coating System

“Our 4 ExcelCoats are well built machines that require less worry and less maintenance. They have taken a lot of problems out of our system. UV coaters used to be one of the things we least liked to deal with, but Harris & Bruno has a product that we really like.”


John Martin, Lab Manager

Miller’s Professional Imaging, Columbia, Missouri


The ZRB offers excellent reliability at a modest price. Compared to other like-models, the ZRB's quality is unmatched, without breaking the bank. With an upgrade-able platform you can add components as you need them, such as a chamber/anilox system, IR lamps, and other features for tailored applications.
