Hönle to launch LED Powerline LC HV at drupa

New product on show will be featuring fast and energy-efficient curing of printing inks and varnishes.

Germany-based Hönle Group has confirmed it will take to drupa to launch LED Powerline LC HV, a system developed to offer fast and energy-efficient curing of printing inks and varnishes.

New in the company portfolio is the LED Powerline LC HV. The water-cooled and variable LED-UV curing device can be used for pinning and final curing in almost any printing application: whether paper or film, web-shaped or 3D.

The modular design of the LED Powerline LC HV allows for ideal length adjustment to the application and enables variable format shutdown, resulting in significant energy savings.

The company will be also promoting LED-UV system, LED Powerline, optimized for greater distances to the substrate featuring special focusing optics ensuring excellent curing results even at high printing speeds. The modular construction of the LED Powerline allows for format shutdown and thus efficient curing on substrates of different sizes.

‘The focus of our drupa presentation is this time on LED-UV systems, especially for digital, sheet-fed, and web printing applications,’ commented Dr Tim Rüttermann, head of the new Hönle curing business unit. ‘They not only provide UV-typical advantages such as higher throughput speeds and reliable printing results but also contribute clearly to the sustainability of printing processes due to their comparatively low energy consumption and the option of format shutdown.’

At the drupa stand of the Hönle Group, there will also be a service point where visitors can learn about the comprehensive service offerings of the curing and drying experts.
