Detailed Equipment Information
Uni-Kote™ provides a reliable, low-cost option for automating screen coating. The computerized control center, conveniently mounted at the side of the screen coating machine, makes programming simple. Uni-Kote’s front and rear screen coaters can apply emulsion in tandem or independently, allowing operators to coat each side of the screen separately, both sides simultaneously, or just one side. M&R’s Job Recall™ allows users to save up to five screen coating jobs for added convenience and quick changeover.
Uni-Kote’s pneumatic screen coating pressure control, variable frequency brushless electric-drive carriage motor, high-quality linear bearing system, and precision-machined coating troughs ensure smooth travel and uniform emulsion application. Consistent emulsion thickness is critical to the quality of the printed image, as it directly affects ink deposit. Uni-Kote ensures consistency by removing the human element. The manual application process is guaranteed to result in high spots and low spots across the screen, and the thickness of the emulsion can vary from person to person. And, unlike individuals coating manually, Uni-Kote doesn’t tire or lose concentration. Uni-Kote also frees the operator to do other tasks during the coating process, greatly improving efficiency and lowering per-screen costs. In fact, when combined with M&R’s i-Image STE I direct-to-screen imaging & exposure system and M&R’s Eco-Rinse screen rinsing system, a single operator can coat, image, expose, and rinse up to 400 pre-registered screen in eight hours.
Adjustable frame holders accommodate multiple screen sizes, and self-aligning clamps of solid aluminum secure screen frames independently for fast loading. The heavy-duty frame provides excellent rigidity for stability during screen coating. Maximum screen frame size is 79 x 109 x 4.5 cm (31” x 43” x 1.75”) for Uni-Kote 3143 and 147 x 132 x 4.5 cm (58” x 52” x 1.75”) for Uni-Kote 5852. Uni-Kote automatic screen coaters are CE Certified, UL Listed, and backed by a one-year limited warranty. Engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance, Uni-Kote is the low-cost way to automate screen coating.
