AMS Spectral introduces new LED-UV curing technology

AMS Spectral UV has unveiled its new XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module

AMS Spectral UV has unveiled its new XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module. This latest innovation claims to offer a range of new capabilities to increase productivity, maximize output, and access curing at unbeatable speeds, harnessing double the power of standard LED curing solutions.

Available from AMS Spectral UV, the new XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module is designed to cure LED-formulated printing inks and coatings on sheetfed and web offset printing presses, or larger-format flexo and rotogravure presses and digital print engines. It is suitable for a wide variety of industrial UV curing processes.    
 
Utilizing new market-leading features and patented technology, the XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module provides system flexibility and reliability. Hosting two large, high-performance LED UV arrays, the Quatro Series delivers double the available power of a standard LED solution at a lower cost than two individual lamps, according to the company.  
 
These features now enable customers to integrate the technology into virtually any analog or digital printing or production process with ease, further increasing print quality while operating at top industrial speeds - driving increased productivity and profitability.   
 
The features of the new Baldwin Technologies XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module include:  
 
Cool Phase - Dual-pass, the high-flow water-cooling system keeps the entire module at the optimal temperature while operating   
 
Extendable Profile - Can be built to any length, providing seamless gap-free curing   
 
Quick Mount - Universal T-slot mounting rails provide quick mounting to a variety of machinery, making units easy to service   
 
Dura Connect - Industrial strength water and electrical connections for extreme product reliability and reduced downtime and associated costs  
 
Chip Connect - Allows sectional control and the ability to easily upgrade or replace LED chips   
 
Peak Optics - Allow for mounting the module at different distances from the substrate while still achieving a secure cure at the highest intensities available  
 
The new XP Quatro Series LED-UV Curing Module supports a wide variety of substrates including micro-thin shrink films, corrugated materials, cardboard, paper and metal.   
 
Michael Derrick, director of Operations and Key Accounts, AMS Spectral UV, said: ‘The Quatro is unique in the LED UV curing industry, notably also in its ability to combine multiple output wavelengths into a single, powerful dose delivery of light. In the past, multiwave blending was compromised by reduced intensities and doses. In the Quatro architecture, adopters can take advantage of new, more powerful combinations of LED curing wavelengths at 365nm, 385/395nm and higher, depending on the needs of their adhesive, coating or ink formulation.’
