Technical, Reliable & Beneficial: UV LED has Impressive Endurance, Brings Advantages to Package Printing

Ultraviolet (UV) curing is a photopolymerization process that uses energy to change a liquid to a solid. Upon absorption of the UV energy, the photoinitiators produce free radicals which initiate crosslinking with binders (monomers and oligomers) in a polymerization reaction to cure or solidify the ink, coating or adhesive. more »

New Revenue Opportunities

Stacy Hoge outlines some of the benefits of working with LED curing technology — LED curing technology opens the door to new revenue opportunities with more press uptime, higher yields, and the ability to print on heat-sensitive substrates, offering increased profitability for printers. Solutions offer higher print quality, faster curing speeds, and a more reliable curing process. New profit streams become available with the LED technology benefits, in addition to saving energy and eliminating replacement part costs. more »
