GEW – A range of arc lamps and LED UV curing systems
ITALY • The British company will display its range of arc lamp and LED UV curing systems for printing and coating applications, available in widths from 100 mm (4”) up to 2500 m (98”) from a single lamp. (Hall 18 Stand E27)
GEW’s patented LED UV curing solutions are provided with an advanced cooling design to ensure effective heat dissipation at high power levels of up to 27 W/cm2 depending on wavelength. GEW’s LW2 system boasts uniform UV output and wavelength across the full curing width and offers reliability, long-term consistent output and extended life cycles.
The company will also the E2C low energy UV curing system with Rhino electronic power supply for the curing of inks and coatings on narrow web presses. Safe for a wide range of heat-sensitive materials with no heat transfer to the machine or substrate at stand-by through the use of actively air-cooled shutter technology, E2C Rhino systems come with the additional benefit of a comprehensive five-year warranty.
GEW will also display their new multi-point UV monitor (mUVm), a major innovation for UV curing installations. This monitor continuously measures UV intensity across the web, which is vital to avoid the risks and consequences of undercured product reaching the customer. With this solution it is now possible to attain 100% UV inspection and to generate a UV curing certificate for every batch, by recording live outputs for every lamp. Furthermore, the new monitor is designed to comply with a broad range of European legislation on food contact packaging.
