Detailed Equipment Information
The Uni-Kote automatic screen coater from M&R brings automated efficiency and consistency to one of the most important steps in the screen printing process. Unlike manual coating the Uni-Kote will not vary in coating speed or pressure, giving you properly coated screens that lead to better image quality, ink deposit and detail in your prints.
Uni-Kote’s fully programmable touch screen HMI allows precise control of coating speeds, and number of coats per side, while Job Recall™ allows operators to save up to fifteen “recipes” for quick and easy recall when needed. The precision machined steel chassis uses high quality linear bearings combined with a brushless electric drive system to provide smooth chatter-free carriage movement, while the high-quality regulators and pneumatics deliver consistent uniform emulsion application across the entire screen surface.
The anodized aluminum coating troughs have a dual-edge design allowing for a greater range of emulsion thicknesses across a large assortment of screen mesh counts, and the quick-load design speeds installation and removal of troughs for quick clean up. Combining these features with tool-free frame size adjustments allow operators to rapidly switch frame sizes and coating areas, enhancing versatility and speeding production.
Combine the Uni-Kote with M&R’s i-Image STE I and Eco-Rinse to make your screen department even more efficient. With “M&R’s Digital Screen Room” You’ll see dramatic improvements in screen-production, as well as substantial improvements to image quality and consistency, all with lower operating costs and less waste than you ever thought possible. Screens imaged using M&R’s i-Image computer to screen (CTS) systems leave the “Digital Screen Room” pre-registered for use with M&R’s Tri-Sync registration system. Speeding press setup and getting you up and running in minutes! Not hours.
