    There was a thread the other day about the Drytac UV Coater and I had just been approached a few weeks ago by the MFG of the UV Coaters. I went did some demos on the one from Tec Lighting and to be honest, I am amazed that every major company doesn't run one of these yet. It will UV coat for $0.08 sq.ft, super fast through put speeds, amazing quality, and great people. I met with the owner and he is a great guy with lots of industry experience.

    More info on these machines can be found here: http://www.teclighting.com/products/megacoat-xl-63/
    Some cool videos of it in action can be found here:

    If anyone is interested in learning more just let me know.

    What is the initial cost of the machine though?
    Does it support matte and gloss through roller and speed settings or is a drain and rinse necessary?
    It looks like 15-20' long so there is that issue.
    Cost of electricity and its installation are another issue.

    Interesting technology, and really speeds up turnaround and much cheaper to run im sure, but it appears to be a substantial investment.

    The machine is about $76k, it supports Gloss, Matte, Satin, UL Slip Resistant Coating for Floor Graphics, It also does flood coats of white, Also optically clear for window perf. This coating will stretch up to 200 percent so you can still use it for any wrap application.

    Drain and rinse is necessary and you just need to remove any residue on the rollers. It takes a 220v and installation isn't that difficult, but it is done by the MFG so you are in good hands. I can send you the footprint drawing if you would like to see it. Companies like Circle Graphics run this specific unit and I am sure they have great things to say about it, I believe they are running at least 3 of them currently.

    Since its UV it drys instantly once it hits the UV light, so doing those speeds are no problem. It will go up to 1" on substrates, they can be shipped to Canada no problem. Delivery is not included but setup and training are included. After sales is phenomenal, the machines are work horses and the MFG staff has hundreds of techs here in the US and I will find out about Canadian techs.
