As Renz and Argos Solutions have announced the launch of their new F400 HD Cold UV Coater, Renz has confirmed its presence at year’s The Print Show to make first unveiling of the new high definition UV coating machine.
The Argos UV Coaters, made in Belgium, use 2 grams of coating per square metre compared to other manufacturers which aim stay below 10 grams per square metre. Furthermore, the LED UV lamp sleep mode ensures low power consumption. Renz and Argos Solutions’ new F400 HD Cold UV Coater also boasts the glossiest UV coating finish available on the market.
Paul Simpson, Sales Manager at Renz said, “Argos Solutions have entered new territory with this new HD machine and the results are seriously impressive. It has all the features of previous Argos UV coaters, namely cold curing technology and very low cost per page, however this new HD gloss finish puts this machine in a league of its own.
“Flood UV coating has over the years developed a bit of reputation of being unsafe due to the high temperatures and high emissions used on traditional UV coating machines mainly manufactured in the Far East.”
The Argos Solutions range of UV coaters are recognised as the safest on the market with the cold lamp technology developed in Belgium, the machines do not go above 25 degrees Celsius. This also ensures instant curing time which allows the customer to process the paper directly after coating.
The new Argos Solutions F400 HD model also compliments the other flood UV coaters in the range, The F400 LED and the F400 with a traditional UV lamp. Argos also offer 540mm wide machine versions for the B2 size market. Renz UK are the UK distributor for Argos Solutions. Earlier this year Renz GmbH and Argos Solutions entered into a formal manufacturing and distribution partnership.
Iain Bullock, Managing Director, Renz UK added, “for Renz the partnership with Argos is a logical extension of our existing portfolio of high efficiency punching and binding machines for wire comb binding in the digital printing market segment.
Renz will also be showcasing the Punch 500 and Mobi 500 at The Print Show alongside desktop punching and binding equipment for book and calendar work. The Print Show is an ideal time for Renz as printers enter the prime calendar season and this profitable segment of the Print Industry.
Iain concluded, “The Print Show has been a big success story and we are proud to support the show again this year. The organisers have done a fantastic job assembling the largest names in print and making it an event that can’t be missed regardless of the size of printer.”
