Digital Coaters

The Most Versatile Coaters for the Digital Market

Capitalizing on our offset coating expertise, Epic Products has developed versatile coaters for the digital printing market. These coaters are fully automated and consistently apply UV or aqueous coating.


Introducing the CT-660XD™-Off-Line Coating System with Extended Drying

The Epic CT-660XD offers all the same features and capabilities of the CT-660. However, in addition to the conventional UV and air drying the XD is outfitted with IR drying.

The Advantages of Extended Dry
        • Apply blister coating for packaging applications
          • UV SoftTouch made easier
            • Improve the flow and lay down of UV coating


Epic CT-660™ – Off-Line Coating System

The Epic CT-660 is the most versatile digital coater on the market. The CT-660 outperforms the most advanced roller coaters. Using offset coating technology and advanced electronics, the CT-660 can support a broad range of coatings and can spot, flood or security coat at 4,000 sheets per hour. Recently, Hewlett Packard validated the CT-660 as part of their complete folding carton solution (read full article).
