  15. 15. What is new in Liquids     Introducing the Giclee Coater New Liquid-Colorcapture New single use Giclee coater New Base model for AFC1600
  16. 16. Giclee Coater
  17. 17. GicleeCoater 44     Coats cut sheet canvas and fine art paper Prints can be easily coated mutiple times Each coat enhances finish and protection Please come by the booth for a demo.
  18. 18. GC44 Features      Mister to keep the coating viscosity consistent Rear pull out table Disposable coating roller cover Filtered coating recirculation system Forced air dryer so prints come out ready to wrap or ship
  19. 19. New SmartCoater
  20. 20. Base Model vs Pro Model   Supply system: Base has no coating tank or pump.  It has a gravity feed system.  There is no Stainless steel soaking tank. No quick disconnects (there is no need).  One nozzle vs two nozzles on the PRO. Drying System:  No spare heating elements (PRO comes with 2).  One bank of drying fans have been eliminated.  There is no rear outlet for an auxiliary dryer.
  21. 21. Base Model vs Pro Model    Control System:  No pump sensor. No constant speed control.  No take up alarm.   The Base will use a regular rear idler roller, regular castors (no self-leveling), and the motor will be smaller. (90 Watts versus 400 watts in the PRO) The Base unit will be sold to smaller users, whereas the PRO will sell to those that have high volume.
  22. 22. Pro Model-What’s New      Stainless steel soaking tank added New Electronic Controls Smaller width (<36”) available 1st Qtr 2014 Speed control enhanced-encoder vs sensor New pump and mixing station
