RIVER FALLS, WI -- AMS Spectral UV – A Baldwin Technology Company will showcase its leading LED-UV curing technologies to the North American market at the upcoming PRINT 17 exposition, set for September 10 to 14 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The company, which was formed in early 2017 by combining Air Motion Systems with Baldwin Technology’s UV and IR divisions, is excited to reintroduce its new-but-familiar brand and products to the market.
“We are looking forward to speaking with printers who want to add LED-UV curing to their presses – we’ve seen our installed base more than double in the last two years, and know we are still in the early stages of getting our systems to those who would most benefit from them,” said Steve Metcalf, president of AMS Spectral UV.
“It’s exciting to be on the cutting edge of a technology that is both in-demand yet still making its way to the operators that need it most – the PRINT 17 show will be a great opportunity for those who have been interested in LED, but hesitant, to speak with us in person about how curing technology will benefit their businesses.”
AMS Spectral UV offers three main LED-UV curing lines: the XP Series, the XD Series, and the XO Series; the XP Series is the dominant LED curing system both for retrofits and OEMs in the sheetfed offset printing market. It offers a host of benefits over conventional UV curing and IR drying methods, including “instantly dry” sheets, energy savings, a heatless process and more.
“LED Curing is surpassing our customer’s original expectations, not only by helping them expand their product offerings, but by providing a ROI better than forecasted. It’s a true game-changer for those with long perfectors, and for printers specializing in heat-sensitive substrates,” commented AMS Spectral UV’s Hans Ulland. “LED curing is being rapidly adopted by both folding carton and standard commercial printers as a more efficient process with a quicker payback.”
AMS Spectral UV will host booth 3007 at PRINT 17, conveniently located near the entrance of the event. Samples of LED-cured print pieces will be available for review, as will examples of LED-UV modules.
