1) Shorter Lead Times
LED-UV offset printing is high speed and on demand. With no need to wait for printed sheets to dry, work can immediately move on to the next process. You also won't need space to store printed sheets while they dry.
2) Environmentally Friendly
Powderless printing ensures a cleaner work environment and less equipment failure due to powder contamination. Also, LED-UV ink is recyclable and easily removable.
3) Consistent Print Quality
Printed sheets are dried instantly so you do not need to worry about color changes during dry-down. The problem of powder dropping on to printed sheets is eliminated, and printed sheets do not shrink due to heat.
4) Compatible With Special Media
The ability to print on resin film, synthetic paper, metalized paper, and other types of special media.
5) Reduced Power Consumption
LED-UV technology uses 1/8th of the power a conventional UV lamp system consumes. The LED-UV light source can be instantly switched on/off to reduce power consumption during job turnover.
6) No Infrared Light
LED-UV perfectors do not produce infrared light, so the unit generates less heat and requires less air conditioning in the press room.
7) Long Life
LED-UV systems have a life of approximately 15,000 hours. This is five times the approximate 1,000 - 3,000 hour life of conventional UV lamp systems.
See live demonstrations of the LED-UV Perfecting System at the Commit To Print Open House in Marietta, GA on July 21st - 22nd. Event is free to attend.
