The Grafcut UV53 adds value to your prints at a fraction of the cost of traditional laminating. UV Coating is a process whereby a polymer resin changes from a liquid to a solid with the help of an ultraviolet light source. UV Coating can be a direct replacement for traditional lamination. Provides a protective rub-resistant covering that adds value to any document, increasing the vibrancy and richness of its colours.

Widely considered to be a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional forms of lamination. UV Coaters flood the sheet in production. With any waste/overspill varnish recycled into the holding tank for re-use. Once coated, documents are 100% recyclable whereas laminated media would normally be treated as plastic waste. A further reason why UV Coating is considered to be better for the environment.

The Grafcut UV53 is a compact, cost effective, sturdy UV Coating solution aimed at the Offset and Digital Print markets. It can handle sheet sizes up to 530mm in width with zero restriction on sheet lengths, making it perfect for a wide range of applications and larger format B2 print companies.

Manufactured in Poland. And designed to offer the very best performance whilst also being very simple and intuitive to use. The modular design allows the system to grow and expand as your needs change. Grafcut offer a vacuum fed pile feeder to automate the process. Thus creating the UV53-F.
