KROENERTs LabCo can be tested in India now

Hamburg, 25 July 2018. KROENERT, a global leader in the manufacture of customized coating and laminating systems, delivered a multifunctional coating system for research- and test purposes to the Michelman Innovation Centre for Coatings (MICC) in Mumbai, India - a dedicated space for rapid prototyping of new innovative packaging structures. The LabCo coating system is designed as two head coating line that can be used for different coating and laminating applications with convection drying and UV curing. One of the key applications is the functionalization of polymer films for the packaging industry. Together with the Michelman product solutions this KROENERT line can be used for coating tests and product developments.


The modular design of the system allows a very flexible handling. In addition to gravure and smooth roller applications for direct and indirect mode it can also be used for reverse and forward coating processes. Besides the substrates can either be coated on one side or simultaneously on both sides. Due to this multifunctional use many new trends and developments of the packaging film market can be realized.

Since 2010 KROENERT offers the LabCo line, which is especially suitable for product development and therefore reduces the capacity utilization of the production lines. This test coater can ideally be used for laboratory, research and development operations, because it meets scalable results, which can be transferred directly to systems such as RECO.

“We are very happy that our LabCo coating machine is the centrepiece of the new development center of Michelman. With this cooperation we are very close to our Indian customers and we drive the development of the diverse and demanding packaging market there,” says Andrea Glawe, Regional Sales Director Asia-Pacific at KROENERT.


Since 1903 KROENERT is developing, engineering and manufacturing customized turnkey line solutions in the field of coating technology for web-like materials such as paper, foil and film. Besides complete lines, a comprehensive range of winders and rewinders, more than 60 modular coating systems and advanced drying technology, humidifiers and laminating systems can be designed and delivered. The products manufactured on KROENERT machines are used in the flexible packaging industry, for technical applications and renewable energies as well as environmental protection. KROENERT’s headquarters are in Hamburg, Germany, where its own research and test centres are also located. It is represented by agents across the globe. KROENERT and its affiliated companies together employ about 390 people. Further information:
