ExcelCoat ZRS

Fully Automated Offline

Spot Coating System

“The Harris & Bruno offline coater has a quality mode where it can register the coating to the print with camera technology. This is not as easy as you might think, and the ZRS only needs a couple sheets to register, which means minimal waste.”


Glen Adams, Category Manager for
Folding Carton Inc.

The ZRS Spot Coater is a high throughput, multipurpose machine that raises the bar in advanced finishing machinery. With a quick change flexo-style plate system and sophisticated camera registration technology, the ZRS is the perfect fit for packaging and commercial print applications.


The ExcelCoat ZRS uses a two-mode registration system for spot coating. High accuracy mode uses a high speed camera sensor and servo drives to position each individual sheet for registration accuracy. High throughput mode uses a lead edge sheet sensor to register spot coating to the printed image.


Changeover in minutes! The ZRS features a quick change applicator sleeve for easy changeover between jobs. At the touch of a button, machine settings are automatically loaded and the ZRS is ready to run— drastically reducing manual operator involvement. The fully automated ExcelCoat ZRS stores up to 50 saved jobs for easy repeatability.
