Anthology: New Generation UV

All the information on new generation UV, all in one place. The New Generation UV Anthology was first published in September 2013 and is updated with highlights on an ongoing basis.

New generation UV covers the use of tuned mercury vapour lamps and LEDs to cure compatible inks. The technology extends what is commonplace in carton printing, label printing and large format printing into commercial printing.

There are five reasons to consider new generation UV

1 QUICK DRYING
The sheet is immediately dry in the delivery and can be processed at once enabling litho printers to offer an express turnaround service.

2 NO SPRAY POWDER
There is no spray powder to dull the impact of ink, to be cleaned away from the press and to contaminate finishing equipment.

3 PRINT ON PLASTICS
It extends printing with litho into printing on plastic materials because there is no extra heat generated by the UV lamps.

4 SAVE ENERGY
There is a tremendous energy saving over conventional hot air/IR dryers.

5 UNCOATED STOCK
There is a big quality improvement when printing on uncoated papers because ink remains on the surface rather than soaking into the fibres of the paper.
