FRANCE • Codimag presents its new, energy-saving IST MBS UV LEDcure solution for its label presses at UV Days 2017 in Nürtingen, Germany. At the event, a Codimag Viva 340 press will be shown for the first time with the air-cooled IST MBS LEDcure system.
The UV Days 2017 are organised and hosted by its partner, IST METZ,, from 15 to 18 May, in Nürtingen, Germany. At the event, a Codimag Viva 340 press will be shown for the first time with the air-cooled IST MBS LEDcure system that offers longer lamp lifetime, reduced energy consumption, increased start-up speeds and the elimination of ozone releases found with traditional UV lamps. This LED UV system will be used to cure the waterless offset UV inks printed on the Aniflo units of the Viva 340.
Benoit Demol, president, Codimag. “In addition to its other benefits, IST MBS LEDcure technology reduces the heat generated by dryers, enabling the printing of temperature-sensitive substrates, including shrink sleeve materials.”
The Aniflo inking unit on the Viva press, a technology designed by Codimag, combining offset quality, flexo simplicity and digital flexibility, is set to offer label converters the opportunity to print on a range of narrow-web substrates. Together with LED UV system, as advantages of Aniflo unit are named short set-up times, reduced waste and compatibility with low-cost offset plates. Furthermore, Aniflo, together with the Viva press, enables inline finishing.
