Recently years, UV LED curing technology are widely used in printing and showed speedy growth trend due to its variety of advantages,
What is UV Printing?
UV printing is a form of digital printing that uses UV curing systems to dry or cure ink as it is printed. As the printer distributes ink on the surface of a material (called a “substrate”), specially designed UV lights follow close behind, curing or drying the ink instantly. Because the UV lights cure any printed ink immediately, the dots of wet ink do not get a chance to spread out once printed, resulting in much finer detail.
What are the advantages of UV LED printing?
1. LEDs have minimal heat output. Heat-sensitive substrates can be printed on safely, with quality results.
2. This curing process is more environmentally friendly as it produces few VOC’s, odor, and heat. Heat, ozone and mercury are eliminated from press rooms, making them safer and improving overall environmental impact.
3. LED UV curing lamps last significantly longer (10x) than traditional UV lamps, saving time and money (our LED-UV modules can provide 20,000+ hours of curing, when operated at the proper power capacity).
4. LED UV lamps can be switched on and off instantly, without any degradation of intensity. That means faster operations and higher productivity.
