UK developer Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) says its major 2013 roll-out of UV LED and UV Arc solutions will continue at FESPA.
On stand N3S, the all new LEDZero Solidcure 2 is the latest UV LED curing unit drawing on ITL's 10 years of experience in developing semi conductor light engines. Solidcure 2 offers class-leading dose and linearity of output surpassing other water cooled units of this type in the world. Slim and ultra compact, this water-cooled system has a standard output power of 12W/cm² @ 395nm with alternative wavelengths such as 365nm, 385nm and 405nm available as options.
Fully scalable in both length and width, the LEDZero Solidcure 2 can be tailored to meet extremely specific UV LED requirements on a wide range of applications, including high speed inkjet printing, high speed roll to roll flexographic and offset printing; screen printing; converting; and a wide range of other industrial applications.
Specification benefits include field-replaceable modules offering even further extended service life; driver electronics fully integrated within the lamp head; switch mode power supply unit for world-wide compatibility. Also available in a HD version offering twice the dose of the standard model, the ground-breaking LEDZero Solidcure 2 is commercially-available from July (2013).
FESPA London will meanwhile host a live application of ITL's new SubZero LED system. Although primarily designed for wide format graphics platforms, the SubZero LED will be demonstrating it's high cure capability by being equally at home in a single pass high speed application at the show.
This revolutionary new air-cooled curing solution has a compact footprint and all the proven features and benefits of the established SubZero arc system range making for an easy conversion to UV LED technology for any platform currently using the world leading SubZero.
The SubZero arc program is also enhanced with the launch of two new models on show for the first time. Firstly there is added cure length in the new SubZero 220 along with a new high power version of the very popular SubZero 170 model, which produces 50% more output power than the standard version.
Also on show - and again new for 2013 - ITL's super compact MZero LED utilises all of the proven features and benefits of its sister arc product and incorporates them into an LED alternative enhanced by extra functionalities such as instant on/off, variable power and low temperature operation and a plug and play feature to the lamp head design enabling simple machine integration or field installation.
Ideally suited to digital inkjet applications such as small plotters, 3D product printers or marking and encoding applications, the MZero LED is also equally at home curing inks, coating or sealants in a variety of other industrial applications.
