Lawrence, Kan. – October 20, 2018 – Allen Press, Inc. is excited to announce the purchase of an ExcelCoat ZR30, manufactured by Harris & Bruno International. The ExcelCoat ZR30 greatly expands in-house specialty coating capabilities, allowing Allen Press to produce top-quality products with even more efficiency.
“We decided on H&B because they have the absolute best coaters in our industry, with the newest technology,” said Allen Press CEO Randy Radosevich. “We want to offer superior full-service printing to our customers and the ExcelCoat ZR30 provides that premium level coating you can’t get at most print shops. Our customers will love the coating effects the ExcelCoat ZR30 can deliver and the quality difference will be very noticeable.”
Installed in August 2018, the new coater efficiently produces digital sized sheet print jobs with different coating technologies and impeccably applies aqueous soft touch coating to digitally printed projects. With recent purchases such as two digital presses, a die cutter and foil stamper, and a saddle stitcher, Allen Press has positioned itself as one of the industry’s most modern and innovate printing companies.
“We have been so impressed by the breadth of offerings that Allen Press provides,” Sean Tobler, Harris & Bruno International Regional Manager said. “They are growing quickly, adding innovative equipment and have a super tenacious team. H&B is looking forward to helping Allen Press expand their capabilities and offer more to their customers through value-added coating application.”
The ExcelCoat ZR30 has already been producing high-quality results, running a number of digital sized projects. With the new coater’s versatility, high speed and premium quality as well as the professionalism and care shown by Harris & Bruno International, Allen Press customers will benefit for years to come.
“The entire H&B team has been pros to work with. From sales to project managers to the installation. Even H&B President Nick Bruno checked in to ensure we were completely satisfied,” said Allen Press CEO Randy Radosevich. “It’s been one of the best experiences in working with a vendor on a new equipment install. And we’ve installed lots of new equipment over the last few years.”

Harris & Bruno coater applies receptive UV Gloss for downstream foil stamping
A Harris & Bruno ExcelCoat stands in HP’s Print China booth, where it coated 11 pallets of prints from various HP Indigo Digital Presses.
The Harris & Bruno ExcelCoat offline/inline coater for UV and AQ continues to gain exposure at worldwide trade shows.
Last month, an ExcelCoat was showcased in the Print China Hewlett-Packard booth. Next month, one will be demonstrated at Dscoop EMEA in Dublin.
H&B coated 11 pallets of prints at Print China, including thin substrate from the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press and packaging board from the HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press. Many of the packaging boards were actually part of an Indigo SmartStream Solution. ExcelCoat’s chamber/anilox system was integral in applying a consistent layer of UV gloss that was receptive enough for downstream foil stamping.
“It’s always great to meet with our worldwide HP partners and customers,” said Scott Michels, H&B Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We look forward to giving demonstrations, answering questions, and showcasing our equipment’s abilities.”
The ExcelCoat series of inline/offline coaters for UV & AQ excels at applying a variety of coatings via its chamber/anilox metering system in a high-throughput environment.

Dscoop attendees were interested to learn about the ability of ExcelCoat’s chamber/anilox system to lay down coating with particulates such as UV Matte and UV Soft Touch, as well as its ability to apply AQ coatings in a high-throughput environment. Current HP Indigo / ExcelCoat users also stopped by the booth to express their thanks.
“The best way I can sum up our experience with Harris & Bruno and the ExcelCoat installation is ‘It’s been easy,'” said Brian Benson, Chief Executive Officer of Benson Integrated Marketing Solutions, where they bought an ExcelCoat to compliment their HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press. “From the sales process to the on-site training and machine reliability, we couldn’t have had it go any better. We were up and running in four days and the relationship with H&B has been outstanding. Harris & Bruno’s machine is an obvious choice for any PSP who wants to add coating to their product offerings.”
