  • Coat up to 400 high-quality screens in 8 hours (Production rates can vary depending on screen size, coating speeds, and number of coats per side, your rate may be different.)

  • Precision machining and high quality components ensure smooth uniform emulsion application

  • Tool-free adjustable frame holders accommodate multiple screen sizes in seconds

The Uni-Kote automatic screen coater from M&R brings automated efficiency and consistency to one of the most important steps in the screen printing process. Unlike manual coating the Uni-Kote will not vary in coating speed or pressure, giving you properly coated screens that lead to better image quality, ink deposit and detail in your prints.

Uni-Kote’s fully programmable touch screen HMI allows precise control of coating speeds, and number of coats per side, while Job Recall™ allows operators to save up to fifteen “recipes” for quick and easy recall when needed. The precision machined steel chassis uses high quality linear bearings combined with a brushless electric drive system to provide smooth chatter-free carriage movement, while the high-quality regulators and pneumatics deliver consistent uniform emulsion application across the entire screen surface.

The anodized aluminum coating troughs have a dual-edge design allowing for a greater range of emulsion thicknesses across a large assortment of screen mesh counts, and the quick-load design speeds installation and removal of troughs for quick clean up. Combining these features with tool-free frame size adjustments allow operators to rapidly switch frame sizes and coating areas, enhancing versatility and speeding production.

Combine the Uni-Kote with M&R’s i-Image STE I and Eco-Rinse to make your screen department even more efficient. With “M&R’s Digital Screen Room” You’ll see dramatic improvements in screen-production, as well as substantial improvements to image quality and consistency, all with lower operating costs and less waste than you ever thought possible. Screens imaged using M&R’s i-Image computer to screen (CTS) systems leave the “Digital Screen Room” pre-registered for use with M&R’s Tri-Sync registration system. Speeding press setup and getting you up and running in minutes! Not hours.

Engineered for dependable performance and low maintenance the Uni-Kote is the low-cost way to automate your screen coating. Available in two sizes (3143 and 5852 see specifications) M&R’s Uni-Kote automatic screen coaters are CE Certified, UL Listed and backed by a one-year limited warranty.
