Phoseon Launches High-dose Air-cooled UV LED Curer
Larger emitting window for longer UV exposure
Phoseon Technology is introducing the FireJet FJ645 UV LED self-contained, air-cooled curing lamp for flexographic applications this week at Labelexpo Europe 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
With a 40mm wide emitting window, the FJ645 provides longer UV exposure time and greater dose, improving through-cure and adhesion of difficult to cure materials; especially over-print varnishes, and dense blacks. According to the company, the increased dose allows for higher speed without the need for additional facilities requirements, such as exhaust blowers or water chillers.
The FJ645 is designed for press manufacturers and converters looking for high performance and digital control. It is suitable for applications that require more dose and dwell time for better surface, depth cure and adhesion. The FJ645 is available in print widths up to 525mm and includes advanced digital interface capabilities for tight process control, such as low-migration processes for food packaging.
“The FJ645 has several advantages over its competitors in the market,” said Sara Jennings, Phoseon’s senior technical marketing engineer. “For example, it’s a high-performance self-contained air-cooled solution that doesn’t require exhaust blowers or water chillers. The wider emitting window allows more dwell time for the ink or coating to absorb more UV energy in one pass. This allows the UV curing process (polymerization) to create longer bonded chains, which improves the strength and through-cure in the material.”
The FJ645 has the performance necessary to increase speed capabilities of market leading presses and is compact enough to retrofit existing installed presses, giving converters the opportunity to do more business now. It has a three-year warranty.
In addition, the FJ645 supports the following patented technology enhancements: WhisperCure Technology to deliver air-cooled performance at reduced decibel levels creating a quieter and safer environment for operators; and TargetCure Technology delivers fast performance uniformity with the instant on and off capability of LED and reliability of performance over the life of the lamp.
The FirePower FJ645 will be on display in the Phoseon booth at Labelexpo Europe 2019, held September 24th-27th in Brussels at the Brussels Expo Centre.
