Due to the long wavelength range of UV LED, it has the ability to cure previously difficult inks with reliably higher quality at faster speeds. UV LED inks are available with colors matched to traditional inks for a smooth transition. Check with your ink supplier for details.
UV LED Capabilities:
With no IR heat, converters using UV LED technology can add new capability to a press, previously unable to run thin and heat sensitive films, eliminating the need for chill rolls.
