April 2016 New Pilot Coater
Kernow Coatings Invests in New Narrow Web Coating Technology
Our newest coater has been custom-engineered, to accurately replicate our full sized coating machines. Armed with modular, multiple coating heads & built-in nip-rollers, we are able to run at real production speeds. Combined with our R&D team who specialise in custom adhesives, face coatings, & complex constructions for the labelling & security markets -we have a winning combination!
Product Development Manager, Garry Hume said, “We can provide pre-production trials, quality customised samples, & narrow web production with unique efficiency. The coater is even housed in a clean room environment making it ideal for medical & food applications.”
With a manufacturing width of 300mm and a maximum roll diameter of 300mm we are able to work jointly with our customers on new product developments and can produce meaningful trial quantities for product evaluation before moving to full scale production. This further enhances our ability to be flexible with our extensive range of mix and match top coatings, face materials, adhesives, and release liners, producing materials from unsupported through complex multi-layer constructions.
Our Label Specialist, Paul Dimery said, “Without the usual issues of large quantities being required for new product developments, Kernow can produce small rolls of brand new materials following discussions and developments with our customers.”
