Phoseon – New real-time UV irradiance monitor TargetSure
USA • Phoseon Technology introduces TargetSure Technology, a patent-pending technology that monitors UV irradiance in real-time, at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago. TargetSure works with Phoseon’s FireJet FJ200 and FJ605 high-capability air-cooled UV LED curing lamps.
According to the company TargetSure provides integrated real-time irradiance and Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM) monitoring for the family of Phoseon UV LED products. The device detects if UV output is within the expected defined range and immediately notifies the user of UV output degradation and inconsistencies.
“Customers are demanding real-time monitoring of UV Curing lamps to minimize waste. With immediate and targeted feedback of UV irradiance, TargetSure provides a clear view of curing system performance for tighter process control and reliable performance.” Explains Keate Despain, vice president of marketing at Phoseon.
TargetSure technology is set to be suitable for “dark factories” that are fully automated. According to Despain, if there is a discrepancy in UV irradiance, TargetSure provides immediate notification to minimize down-time and scrap.
Low-migration printing — the process of applying and curing specially formulated inks used in packaging so there is minimal to no migration through the packaging materials and into the product — also benefits from TargetSure, so Phoseon says. Low-migration printing requires stable, constant curing as a key part of the process. Providing real-time SLM output ensures label runs are fully cured with consistent, safe output.
