PST Line I is a completely self-contained system for applying a stable, high-quality varnish and metal coating to packaging items in-house with only one operator. Its robotic spray works accurately on-demand, using less varnish and producing far fewer rejects, making it extremely economical and eco-friendly.3 in 1: Three processes in one sealed automated production line
PST Line I applies a UV base-coat, 3D metallisation and a UV top-coat together in one processing system. The line consists of several modules depending upon the configuration.

High solid UV curable lacquer is the new industry standard, but it is very expensive. Traditional always-on spraying techniques use up to 80% more varnish. With the PST Line I, each 3D item can be varnished individually in as little as 150 milliseconds with minimum wastage.Less rejects
Consistent controlled processes ensure consistent results with less errors and consistent quality control. Built-in ionization and Class 100 HEPA filtration ensures that no contamination enters the process area; therefore ensuring guaranteed quality in the production process.One operator
The PST Line I loading and offloading are linked by a fully automated handling system, with precision servomotors controlling all functions. The process control is monitored and adjusted using a user-friendly, touch screen interface. Even quality control is carried out automatically via a HD camera and identification software.Eco-friendly
PST Line 1 is extremely efficient, with much lower energy consumption than traditional lines and much less varnish. There is no toxic wastewater to process after spraying or other unnecessary waste products. No toxic chrome derivatives are used in the metallisation process.
Customers who have already installed the PST Line I are now being recognised with Eco Awards around the world. With the use of high solid UV varnish, emissions are minimised. It eliminates the toxic emissions associated with the galvanic process used in chrome.
Furthermore thanks to the innovative spraying technology the VOC emission are drastically reduced compared to traditional spray varnishing systems.
