Screen, Flexo, and Digital Printing
Developers of printing equipment are choosing UV LED curing technology because of the following advantages:
the curing heads are small enough to be used in smaller, more compact machines. Without generating a lot of heat or consuming high levels of electrical power, UV LED curing units can produce deep, thorough curing on a huge range of substrates. UV LED lamps can provide controlled curing intensity on thin plastics, foils, and films that would soften, warp, or discolor under the heat produced by UV arc lamps.
Because a UV LED curing lamp is a solid-state electronic device, it can deliver more than 20,000 hours of operating life. Consequently, printing equipment owners don’t have to spend the time or money to change out the curing heads as often as arc lamps that have an average operating life of about 2,000 hours.
