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.

Cedar Graphics is looking forward to ExcelCoat complimenting their digital variable data capabilities through allowing them to apply a wide variety of coatings to short runs offline.
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.
