Johannesburg based converter JMB Labels has invested in the new UV Ray Atom systems fitted into its MPS 8-color flexo presses to increase savings on lamp cooling costs and to improve its curing quality and overall productivity.
UV Ray is an Italian company with 20 years’ experience in producing dichroic reflectors that balance energy efficiency and reliability. They are using less energy and provide power stability due to its lamp performance and control. The new lamp design of the UV Ray Atom system generates considerably less heat resulting in higher lamp efficiency and longer life. It is simple to operate and can be fitted to any new or existing flexo, offset or letterpress presses.
‘We did extensive market research and found the UV Ray system suits us best because of guaranteed performance and energy savings,’ said Aslam Monia, owner of JMB Labels. ‘Another reason is our great relationship with family-owned Rotocon, which always goes the extra mile. The company has well trained engineers with international back up that service our MPS flexo and Rotocontrol finishing machines very well.”
Leading the sales and technical discussions was Patrick Aengenvoort, director of Rotocon, who explained the reason for the upgrade: ‘Customer wanted to retrofit its presses with a better performing UV curing system due to lamp faults causing down time in production. From my years of experience in the printing industry and our partnership with UV Ray, I could help guide our customer to make the best decision and configuration for their production environment.’
Rotocon’s technical engineers removed the previously installed systems and installed the new UV Ray Atom which they customized to meet specifications of the customer.
