One of the latest UMV inventions is the INVO® Coater. Customers often have very limited space for rebuild and upgrades of existing coating units. Capital Expenditure constraints are also a common part of the reality for the lion part of our customers.


UMV has therefore designed and launched the compact and versatile INVO® Coater module.
“-Our guideline in this New Product Development has been that Minor Capex should give Major Effects, says Håkan Karlsson, Vice President Operations of UMV.

This short dwell application unit can be installed in pre-metering position or to meter directly on the web.

INVO® Coaters can run with grooved or smooth rod and of course with INVO® Tip, UMVs own patented and award winning metering element. 

INVO® Coaters come with a jet applicator that has UMV’s unique chamber design, ensuring uniform MD and CD distribution. The jet applicator rests on a support beam with special features assuring exact positioning and stability. 

INVO® Coaters can also be equipped with a profiling system.
