2019: A Year of Growth For Digital Printing

Excerpt from TEXTILE WORLD (01/02) – www.textileworld.com (Dr. Lisa Parillo Chapman, Technical Editor)

Austria-based ZIMMER AUSTRIA Inc. is a producer of machines for textile and carpet finishing. For special applications that require colorant penetration through the substrate such as carpeting, terry towels, flags, and plush, or heavy automotive and home décor fabrics, ZIMMER offers the COLARIS high-performance pre-treatment, digital printing, and colorant systems. The COLARIS series of printers can be used with a variety of colorants such as reactive, disperse, acid, pigment, and vat. Inline pre- and post-treatment systems can be added to improve print quality and increase ink penetration.

From 1 to 500 ZIMMER AUSTRIA is celebrating the benchmark of delivering its 500th MAGNOROLL coating machine.

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.

Join the success road with MAGNOROLL

Join the success road - and ensure your competitive advantage by stocking up your production park with a MAGNOROLL multipurpose coating machine. From one-color printing to coating with paste or foams (instable, meta-stable, stable).
Various coating modules such as knife, screen, slot or magnet roll coating can be changed by a few simple steps. With ZIMMER you can make the difference.


Concentricity accuracy and precision is crucial for quality results, especially when applying coatings on large working widths. The world-famous ZIMMER MAGNET SYSTEM PLUS with up to 3 magnet bars, guarantees a 100% uniform application for any coating, laminating and lacquering. ZIMMER AUSTRIA coating systems ensure the needed accuracy and precision for applying coatings also on working widths larger than 5 meters.

Accelerating our client’s success is at the heart of our DNA. Therefore, ZIMMER AUSTRIA provides the opportunity to run trials or even small-scale productions at our Technology.Application Centre in Klagenfurt. Depending on the individual requirements we offer a variety of standard and special coating techniques to be tested together with our expert technologists, such as knife coating combined with screen printing.

Outstanding coating results require attention to every detail and the highest quality in every step of the process. ZIMMER AUSTRIA has decades of experience in the manufacturing of coating systems, where we achieved many breakthrough innovations that our customers benefit from. We believe that quality makes the difference. Therefore, we offer tailor-made coating systems, manufactured with highest quality materials (stainless steel, chromed steel, etc.), equipped with state-of-the-art operating software to provide our customers with the highest level of quality.
