8 Color Press 433Px
UV LED technology delivers hassle free curing on new and existing narrow web presses. The system efficiently cures inks and coatings printed on a variety of substrates, including thinner filmic materials, which can be sensitive to the higher temperatures generated by traditional mercury offerings. UV LED generates far less heat, providing greater flexibility in material selection and a consistent cure at higher speeds. Read more »

SUNY-ESF/RadTech Webinar Series: At the Tipping Point? A Snapshot of UV LED Curing in North America

Esf Logo
Thursday, March 31, 2016 from 2:00 PM to 2:30 PM (EDT) — With rapid advances in both chemistry and hardware, UV LEDs are fast becoming an alternative, or even the standard method for UV curing in certain markets. At the same time, interest in UV LEDs is higher than ever, with a record number of papers addressing UV LED technology scheduled for the upcoming Radtech 2016 conference in May. This 30-minute webinar will provide a brief "snapshot" of progress of UV LEDs for curing inks, coatings and adhesives. We will examine the state of UV LED curing in various print markets (digital, screen, flexo, offset), as well as in the spot cure and industrial adhesives market and for curing UV coatings.
