Excelcoat ZRW

Automated Offline/Inline

Web Coating System


The H&B ExcelCoat ZRW is a high speed web coater that combines versatile, robust machinery with high quality coating application. Offered in 22” and 42”—simplex or duplex—configurations, the ZRW can be integrated inline with most digital high speed web presses. It can also be supplied as an offline solution with dedicated unwind and rewind. The ExcelCoat ZRW’s wide range of substrate handling capabilities make it the ideal solution for printers looking to add protection or enhancement to print.


The fully automated ExcelCoat ZRW features a quick change sleeve system for both anilox and applicator rolls, which allows for job changes in minutes. Full automation means machine settings are set at the touch of a button, including wash up between coating chemistries. Equipped with the renowned H&B chamber/anilox system, the ZRW is perfect for flawless application of AQ coatings, UV coatings, and primers to fit every printers’ needs.


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.
