LITHOCOAT CIRCULATOR UPGRADE
The H&B LithoCoat Circulation System is the preferred chamber/anilox/circulation system for tower coaters, with over 10,000 installs worldwide. In recent years, we have reinvented LithoCoat technology, allowing for more productivity, easier maintenance, and reduced overall downtime. LithoCoat Circulation Systems are built in an upgradable architecture, allowing for easy additions to your current equipment.
LithoCoat Circulators have been upgraded with a focus on high quality components and materials, allowing for better reliability and overall efficiency.
Reduce coating waste by more than 50% using Intelligent Viscosity Logic (IVL) technology. IVL is the ideal solution for processes requiring varying viscosities on coatings or inks, allowing automatic timer settings that update as coating viscosity changes.
H&B Smart Pumps last up to 5 times the life of conventional ARO Pumps. With fewer moving parts, and electronically controlled pump action, Smart Pumps feature increased flow rates with less air consumption.
PLC controlled Smart Pumps optimize coating needs & usage, resulting in minimal foaming. Ultrasonic sensor alerts system in the event of loss of coating flow.
Renewed warranty and support options
The leading cause of coater downtime is time spent changing blades and seals, followed by changeover between coating chemistries. By keeping a spare chamber on hand, you can cut that downtime out almost completely.
SAVE ON COATING CONSUMPTION
Quantum Anilox Engravings
Save at least 15% on coating consumption when using the Quantum Anilox Engraving, our exclusive new anilox engraving. Use less coating vs comparable traditional engravings, while achieving superior overall laydown and better particulate release (ideal for soft touch/matte/specialty coatings).
THOROUGHLY MIXED COATING
Swift Clean Troughs
The H&B SwiftClean trough is coated with a nonstick material that allows for faster cleanup and reduced downtime versus traditional chamber troughs. Swift and easy clean up means no clogging or hard scrubbing.
REDUCE CLEANUP TIME
The CleanCell PRO Anilox Cleaning Kit is the first all-in-one preventative maintenance package for anilox roll cleaning. Using nanotechnology, the cleaner gets underneath dried coating and lifts it out of anilox cells— substantially improving the lifetime of the anilox roll, and drastically reducing maintenance costs.
MORE ACCURATE METERING
Orange Doctor Blades
H&B recommends the Orange Doctor Blade for most applications. This blade outperforms traditional steel blades when it comes to blade life, metering precision, anilox wear and scoring, safety, and more!
With over 70 years of industry experience, we are experts at the coating process and associated anilox engravings required. As the preferred anilox roll supplier for many of the worldwide offset press OEMs, H&B is well equipped to manufacture for any press type.
