decorative bottle printing

Serigraphie Richford specializes in printing and decorating glass containers for spirits, health and beauty, wine, cider, beer, bottled water, soft drinks, food and the promotional glassware industry. During this premium decorating process, Serigraphie utilizes Phoseon's UV LED light sources for curing inks on glass containers to improve the quality of print.

Applied Ceramic Labeling
Screen-printing, or applied ceramic labeling (ACL), is a process which allows the ability to apply the images, logos, and text, which make up the design, directly to the glass surface. Direct printing enables Serigraphie to combine the brand image and the container ensuring a consistent and unique package design. Inks, enamels, precious metals and other specialty materials can be used or combined if need be, and applied directly on glass or coating.

UV LED Curing Technology
UV LED curing technology is integrated into decorative bottle printing units for a variety of label applications including bottle labeling machines and systems designed for direct printing on cylindrical containers. The small size of the light sources makes them ideal for machines with limited space. It also allows for printing on heat-sensitive substrates and ever-thinner labels. These solutions enable users to process a variety of materials at maximum production speeds, with low-input power requirements.

The Phoseon FireLine™ is a high powered water cooled UV LED curing light source with peak intensities up to 8W/cm². FireLine products are ideal for a wide variety of printing applications such as decorative bottle printing.
