SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Harris & Bruno International announces it was part of an outstanding event that showcased the HP PageWide Web Press T400S with coating options during an open house at HP’s facility on Jan. 19th and 20th.
H&B web coaters are installed in-line with the HP PageWide Web Press T400S press at the HP facility in San Diego, providing maximum efficiency and productivity. The first is installed between the unwinder and press, and treats coated papers with HP Priming Agent before printing. The second coater is installed after the press and applies an aqueous over-print varnish (OPV). Featuring Harris & Bruno’s renown chamber/anilox technology, these coaters include automated circulators for quick change-overs. Versions are available for either inline or near-line operation.
“It was a pleasure to be included in this event and we’re proud to be selected as an HP SmartStream Solution partner for these presses,” said Scott Michels, H&B VP of Sales & Marketing.

Customer & OEM Engagement Continues to Grow for ExcelCoat
“With additional ExcelCoats in the worldwide market every year, word is spreading to printers and press manufacturers that ExcelCoat offers advanced coating capabilities with automation and high throughput,” said Scott Michels, Harris & Bruno VP of Sales & Marketing. “It was a pleasure to meet with many of our partners and develop new partnerships at Graph Expo this year.”
Showcased with live demonstrations in H&B’s Graph Expo booth was an ExcelCoat ZR30 with the features of a Corona Treatment Unit and Duplexer. The Corona unit eases wettability for primers/coatings over substrates and ink traditionally difficult for adhesion.
The Duplexer flips sheets inline for seamless duplex coating or to prepare prints for the next downstream finishing process. ExcelCoat’s chamber/anilox metering system is the preferred method for applying AQ, soft touch, matte, and other coatings with particulates.

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.”
H&B is excited to be bringing machines to HP’s Print China booth April 7-12, the Dscoop EMEA event in Dublin June 3-5, and Graph Expo Sept. 13-16. If you’d like to receive a coating sample booklet with technical details of the machine, please send an e-mail request to [email protected].
