Inline or Offline, the ZRW easily pairs with a wide variety of digital presses. Built around the theory of using high-quality components in a heavy-duty modular architecture, H&B ExcelCoat machines provide many years of service in a demanding production environment. Faster make-ready sequences including expedited wash up, PLC control create a high-throughput environment.


Reducing setup and increasing throughput is where the ZRW excels. The Quick-Change Sleeve System allows for fast changes of anilox and applicators, while our coating circulatror's automated wash cycle makes cleanup a breeze.


Recessed drying lamps not only cure effectively, but create an environment to help prevent fires. The entry and exit of the dryer is fitted with web break detectors. Should a break in the web occur the lamps switch off, the drier shuts down immediately, the fans turn up to high speed, and the UV cassette shuttles close.
