Amalgamated International Ltd. holds ten United
States patents that represent prominent developments within the
printing and coating industry.
Under U.S. Patent # 4,779,557
Amalgamated introduced a blanket cylinder retractable coater for
sheet fed printing presses.
This form of application set the standard for today's blanket
cylinder in-line coater application technology.
In the early 1990's, the printing press manufacturers began
to respond to the demand for in-line coatings expressed by printing
companies and started to offer factory built coating towers using
the Amalgamated blanket cylinder coater concept as their model
along with the extended delivery systems for their new presses.
