UV LED Integration

Are you interested in UV LED technology but not sure how to get started? Phoseon offers fully integrated solutions for narrow-web retrofits that consist of station-by-station building blocks including light sources and Flex Tower power and control systems. Contact Phoseon to request a demonstration or a quote for your system. Back to flexographic printing overview.

Light Sources

UV LED curing solutions from Phoseon offer many benefits to printers and converters that make it an appealing option for any size operation. If you are interested in utilizing UV LED technology, consider both the quality of the UV LED system and also the capability of the company. The product must work within your machine, process, or factory requirements.

The FirePower™ FP601 water-cooled solution cures UV LED flexo inks at speeds of up to 1000fpm (300m/min) with a form factor ideal for integrating into flexo presses with print widths up to 600mm.

For older flexo press retrofits that have other speed limitations (for instance, speeds only up to 750fpm or 230m/min), the Phoseon FireJet™ FJ601 air-cooled solution may be a preferred option. The FireJet does not require a water chiller or air exhaust system.

Phoseon UV LED Capability:

  • 100% UV LED focus
  • Extensive knowledge of LED fundamentals
  • Engineered for maximum efficiency
  • Consistent, uniform UV output every run

Phoseon Reliability:

  • Semiconductor manufacturing and burn-in process
  • Highly Accelerated Life Tests (HALT)
  • Long-term life testing > 70,000 hours
  • ISO certified

Flex Tower

The Flex Tower provides a modular power and control system for flexo and narrow web, with easy installation for retrofit or new equipment. The modules include a user interface for individual lamp control, press integration, and DC power distribution to the lamps.

The modular design allows customers to start with a few stations for the most difficult to cure colors (for instance one for opaque whites and one for dense blacks). After proving the advantages on just one or two stations customers will want the full benefit of UV LED technology. Additional modules can be added to the Flex Tower to upgrade the rest of the press.

Phoseon's retrofit installation kit includes the following options:

  • UV LED light sources
  • The Flex Tower
  • Power, Data, and Press Integration cables
  • Cooling system (for water-cooled only)
  • Water manifold (for water-cooled only)
  • Custom mounting brackets
  • UV shielding (if necessary)
  • Chill plate captures excess UV energy without touching web
