UV LED Curing Shines Through

UV LED curing refers to a technique that uses energy output from the light emitting diodes (LED) in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum to treat inks, coatings, adhesives and other UV curable materials. The energy generated by the ultraviolet light triggers the chain reaction resulting in polymerisation of the material thus hardening, or curing, the material. more »

UV LED Curing Wavelength Spectrum

Understanding Ultraviolet LED Wavelength

UV wavelengths typically are measured in nanometers (nm). Nanometer, a unit of length, is equal to one billionth of a meter. UV light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have a narrow spectral output centered on a specific wavelength, +/- 15nm, with typical commercial UV LED lamps emitting at 365nm, 385nm, 395nm, or 405nm wavelengths. more »

Movin' On: Upgrading Press Equipment & Debunking Myths

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. more »
