UV innovations at Expoprint in Sao Paolo
At Expoprint, which takes place from 20.-24. March in Sao Paolo, Brazil, UV specialist IST METZ and its subsidiary Integration Technology Ltd. will be presenting their broad product portfolio of UV and LED systems for the graphics industry at booth 2142.
The BLK UV system from IST METZ was specially developed for applications in web printing. It offers a significant increase in drying performance compared to conventional UV systems without increasing the UV lamp output. IST also marks a successful step towards improving the energy balance and hardening quality in label printing with the air-cooled MBS product series.
LEDcure – flagship for sheet-fed offset printing
The LEDcure variable high-performance LED system guarantees optimum adaptation to the various requirements of sheetfed offset presses. A clever modular basic concept in combination with its extremely robust and compact design allow the user maximum flexibility and versatility. The length of the LEDcure is freely scalable and can be adapted to all machine formats and installation situations. Newly developed, exchangeable optics ensure optimum light yield on the substrate.
Hot Swap concept for maximum flexibility
With IST METZ's hot swap concept, the user can switch between the proven UV lamp technology and the new LED technology at any time during operation. IST METZ equips its systems as standard in such a way that they can be operated alternately with UV lamps or UV LEDs. The integration and electrical supply are identical for both systems, only the module with the light source has to be replaced in the printing press. The complete replacement takes place without tools within the shortest time.
VZX for single-pass applications celebrates world premiere
The new VZX from Integration Technology offers an extremely high performance of 22W/cm². The VZX brings air-cooled LED technology to a level of performance previously only possible with water cooling. The system is particularly suitable for high-speed single-pass applications in inkjet, flexo and web printing. Like all Integration Technology systems, it is equipped with XT8 booster technology, allowing users greater efficiency in intensity and dose.
