DSM Resins & Coatings install a VCM from RK Print, at their site in the Netherlands.
André Goos, Global Technical Application Manager at DSM “RK Print Coat Instruments Ltd offered great flexibility for the custom made design of our new coating machine. We are very delighted to have the new VCM pilot coating line commissioned. This very versatile coating machine combines inline priming with top coating as well as flexo printing and gravure printing with water based, solvent based and UV curable inks. The new VCM pilot coater replaces our 35 year old RK Rotary Coater having an impressive track record of seamless service during more than 20.000 coating runs using more than 250 rolls of film and coating more than 1000 km of film. We are very confident that this new pilot coater will significantly contribute to the growth of our business in the Printing and Packaging market.”
