UV LED curing

We believe UV LED technology to be the future of UV curing, as it is a lower energy consuming option than traditional Hg-doped lamps. It is also the technology of choice to coat or print on heat-sensitive substrates.

Benefits:


  • Very long lifetime and consistent energy output

  • No infra-red emission ➞ no heat generated

  • No warm-up time required

  • Compact and flexible lamp design

  • No generation of O3

  • Mercury-free system

 

➔ VERY HIGH PRODUCTIVITY AND DURABILITY

➔ RECOMMENDED FOR HEAT-SENSITIVE SUSBTRATES

➔ CURE OF COMPLEX SHAPES

➔ HSE BENEFITS
