Argos Solutions is proud to announce its 10th anniversary as an international, leading finishing equipment manufacturer.
“Prior to 2010, there were only some coating competitors: mostly in Asia.”, Tony Michiels, Argos’ Solutions founder, said. In the role of a pioneer in this fast moving business sector, Tony Michiels was behind the first revolutionary European Coating System which changed the lives of numerous professional printers by developping a unique Cold UV lamp system Coater.
Since then, Argos has never stopped investing in research and development of high speed coaters, and is now proud to be a growing industry player in Europe and North America, with distributors in UK, USA, Germany and Sweden. “With export sales exceeding 95 percent of total sales, Argos is principally active abroad”, Tony Michiels declared.
“Argos Solutions has experienced exceptional growth and development over the past years,” said Tony Michiels. “Moving forward, our focus will remain on providing a high-quality product paired with an exceptional client experience.”
Argos Coaters’ with key characteristics including sustainability, reliability and cost-efficiency, are gaining immense popularity and recognition in the printing sector. Argos makes a point of honour to seek the best possible finishing solutions combining state-of-the-art components such as LED technology for low energy consumption and Cold UV Lamp System as a best alternative to plastic lamination. These remarkable features make it possible to maximise line productivity, reduce maintenance and make significant savings on the running costs. As a matter of fact, Argos customers state that the Argos Coaters are having the lowest cost per page for consumables, ten times less than any other roller coater in the market.
The figures speak for themselves: 180 coaters sold to all four corners of the world, 14 full-time employees in the European and the US manufacturing plant, and a turnover that has more than doubled since 2014. And it does not stop here now Argos made a joint adventure with Plockmatic in Sweden in order to have a worldwide coverage in sales and support.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to these 10 years of success of Argos Solutions.
A toast to many more to come…

Plockmatic and Argos Solutions have announced the launch of the new Plockmatic HD LED Coater at Sign & Print 2019, in Stockholm. The Show provided the ideal platform for this first unveiling of the new high definition UV coater, which proves to be the most economic and safest production machine for UV finishing on the market.
Packaging Innovations 2019. Renz UK is using the Birmingham show to launch the Argos Solutions F400 Cold UV Coating Machine into the UK packaging market.
It provides a great cost effective and eco alternative to plastic laminating a range of printed packaging applications.
The aim of Argos Solutions is to reduce the use of non-biodegradable plastic lamination. Thousands of tons of lamination film is disposed of every year. The UV coating machines from Argos Solutions provide a complete plastic free solution.
Instead of lamination the UV coating machine provides a very thin layer of liquid coating to protect and enhance the printed sheet. The UV coating recommended for use with the Argos UV coaters is a non-harmful liquid varnish made in Europe containing no VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website!
After several months of testing, hard work and commitment, we are thrilled to officially announce the launch of our new website on January 7, 2019!

Argos Solutions and Plockmatic announce to join forces for inline coating solutions
September 26th 2018, Latvia
Argos Solutions and Plockmatic released today’s announcement of the collaboration between both companies for inline coating development for cut sheet digital printing systems.
The result on this collaboration is now live at the Plockmatic Riga Open Days, 26th-27th in Riga, Latvia.
At the beginning of March this year, the Argos Inspiration Days brought together in one single interactive environment every stage of the graphical chain so that anyone faced with creation, production and delivery could see the entire process from start to finish, where Argos Solutions is a market leader.
What was the idea behind the Argos Inspiration Days?
“Print industry is multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial, making production, creation and delivery a necessary step for any print professional at some point in the process. That’s why I decided to create and co-organize the Argos Inspiration Days, offering all the aspects in the graphical chain, on one single place, with live demo’s from the complete digital workflow” tells Tony Michiels, founder and CEO of Argos Solutions.
As of now, every two years, the Argos Inspiration Days is scheduled to take place in Brussels in a unique venue for people in the print industry and related sectors to get together and talk business.
