Unilux, a stroboscopic inspection lighting specialist has introduced UVX, a new line of portable UV inspection strobes with improved efficiency and optical brighteners allowing defects detection at full production speed.
New UVX inspection strobes excite UV-visible inks and optical brighteners over a wider area, making it easy to spot issues across the entire web width confirming the quality without slowing production. By spreading the usable illumination more evenly, UVX strobes provide a true representation of quality by eliminating hot spots.
Portable LED9 and LED12 UVX strobes provide the ability to inspect anywhere on the press and feature quick-change batteries for added convenience. Stationary LED2000 UV inspection systems provide full-width inspection and feature Smart Assist controls, which allow to daisy-chain multiple units for the simultaneous inspection of standard and UV-visible inks and coatings.
‘UV LED technology has improved since our award-winning LEDUV inspection strobes,’ said Mike Simonis, president of Unilux. ‘With UVX, we’ve leveraged those improvements using experience that only comes from decades of problem solving in security printing, cold seal, and coating to meet customers evolving requirements.’
