The sky is the limit. Another milestone has been achieved in the company's history by successfully shipping its 500th MAGNOROLL coating machine.
“A milestone indeed and honor for us as well“, says Bruce Stalker from Eclipse Blinds, excited to receive the machine in Scotland (www.eclipseblinds.co.uk).
Precision, quality and reliability - many aspects changed since the invention of the first MAGNOROLL, but this coating machine made its name as industry benchmark due to its constant characteristics of highest quality and outstanding precision for reliable firstclass results. This success is based on the effort of our dedicated workforce who managed to continuously improve and innovate.
Nowadays, the MAGNOROLL coating machine is equipped with state-of-the-art operating software that is loved by our customers. The machine comes in a unique modular design execution that combines various coating techniques (knife, screen, slot or magnet roll coating) within just one machine. This minimizes machine downtimes and ensures quick adaptation to specific requirements.
