UV LED Curing Systems & Digital Printing
UV digital printing is a well established worldwide application for UV curing systems, with rapidly advancing technology and a growing interest in the use of LED (light emitting diode) light source alternatives. UV LED curing is poised to take on arc lamps as the next generation in UV printer solutions, for both single-pass narrow format and multi-pass wide format UV inkjet print applications. UV LED light sources further enhance the environmentally friendly aspects of UV printing with dramatically lower energy consumption, and no mercury content or ozone emission. At the same time they improve print quality with less heat impact to the substrate, and lower operating costs through extended life and less frequent maintenance intervals.
UV LED Inkjet Printer Light Source
UV LED curing has numerous advantages over other light source alternatives. First and foremost, the generated UV light is concentrated in a narrow spectral range that leads to the key benefit of cooler print results, which allows UV printing even on heat sensitive substrates. Other advantages inherent with UV LED curing include a life span that can be more than five times longer than a traditional arc lamp solution leading to an overall lower cost of ownership, in addition to the instant on/off capabilities that eliminate the need for internal or external shutters in your printer architecture.
Excelerate® light source designs offer an ideal solution to UV printer integrators with industry leading power densities above 9 W/cm2 that support high printing speeds without compromising print quality, while being air-cooled. Our innovative air-cooled LED technology provides ease of integration into your UV inkjet architecture while reducing cost, with no need for tubing, coolant, or external chillers/heat exchangers. A compact UV LED Excelerate® curing head offers seamless integration into existing UV printing applications, as a drop-in replacement for an arc lamp or liquid-cooled LED solution in next generation UV printers.
Excelerate® offers innovative UV LED curing solutions designed to provide leading integrators of industrial and commercial print applications with ultimate control and reliability for highest print quality.
