Trelleborg to Launch New Coating Plate Range to Enhance Precision Coating
Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation within Trelleborg Coated Systems, leading manufacturer of Vulcan®, Rollin® and Printec® blankets, launches a new coating plate range that enhances precision coating and broadens the company’s total offering of offset printing solutions.
An addition to traditional blankets, the new range of coating plates is available in rubber- and polymer-based versions for both UV and aqueous coatings in 1.15 mm and 1.35 mm thicknesses. This new fabricless solution provides added features for pre-press managers and press operators, such as cleaner plate preparation, easier strip with visible cut lines, reduced ink back-trapping, simpler handling and perfect printing quality over runs up to 100,000 copies.
Paolo Gagliardi, Offset Business Director of Trelleborg's printing solutions operation within Trelleborg Coated Systems, says: “The introduction of our newest product line meets the changing demands of the market, contributes to extending our product offering and assures perfect coating and varnishing results.
Improve printing process productivity
“We invested significant time, effort and resources into the development of this new coating plate solution to further improve printing process productivity, print quality and environmental impact of our products. As such, the new coating plates are manufactured on the recently introduced Solventless Roller Head Line which, using solvent-free technology, provides a much more environmentally-friendly solution.”
In addition, the new product also represents the first step of a revised contact strategy, aimed at improving the value of the communication with distributors and end users. To further reinforce this idea, a dedicated web site has been launched in seven languages containing information on the product range and all its features, benefits and advantages for printers. The newly created web site offers an online selection guide which allows customers to download technical information related to coating plates available for their specific market.
