Phoseon Technology – LED curing symposium

Due to the long wavelength range, LED UV cures difficult inks at faster speeds

USA • The company and partners invites to their upcoming symposium in Chicago on April 28. Presenters from Phoseon Technology, Siegwerk and Mark Andy will illustrate how LED curing technology is a game-changer for the printing industry.

Due to the long wavelength range of LED UV, it has the ability to cure previously difficult inks with reliably higher quality at faster speeds. Such inks are available with colors matched to traditional inks for a smooth transition. LED UV capabilities comprise higher quality opaque whites and dense blacks; multiple thick layers cured all the way through with good inter-layer adhesion; low/high Coefficient of Friction (COF) whites for shrink application; UV metallic range; fluorescent colours without fading; wide range of coatings; UV adhesives, both for lamination and PSA, as well as for cold foil; and low migration for food packaging.

LED technology opens the door to new revenue opportunities with the ability to print on heat sensitive and thinner substrates, offering increased profitability for printers and converters. LED curing solutions offer higher print quality, faster curing speeds, and a more reliable curing process. New revenue streams become available with the unique UV LED technology benefits, in addition to saving energy and eliminating replacement part costs.
