Phoseon Technology – Uniformity and control for LED UV curing applications
Phoseon assembles its LED UV curing systems in a semiconductor-based clean-room environment. The company utilizes advanced automation, burn-in, and statistical quality control (SQC) throughout its manufacturing process. Phoseon is 100% LED focused and provides both standard and custom solutions to OEMs and end-users worldwide. (Hall N2 Stand A255)
Phoseon said its technology uses LED UV light to rapidly set, or “cure,” ink used in printing, resulting in a higher quality product without the use of solvent-based inks. With a UV-LED solution, Phoseon said it is enabling converters to enjoy the benefits of UV curing without the typical costs and hazards of operating an arc lamp to produce the UV light. UV LED flexography excels in areas that are in high demand today, from printing on plastic yogurt containers to labels found on numerous consumer items, such as bottled water to snack bags. In addition to its quick-drying capabilities, UV LED curing creates little heat to transfer to, and potentially damage, the printing surface. In addition to standard label and shrink-film jobs, the stable, consistent output of the UV LED system enables converters to confidently run food- and medical-safe processes using LED low-migration inks.
The FirePower FP601 is a water-cooled LED UV curing solution with advanced control features using a Modbus interface and a high intensity output for the fastest possible cure speeds. The FireJet FJ601 simplifies retrofits with a self-contained air-cooled design that eliminates the need for air-extraction systems or water-cooling systems.
