Trusted Conventional UV Curing Systems For Commercial Printing Applications:

AMS Spectral UV Manufactures conventional UV curing systems that use mercury arc bulbs to generate UV light. This tried-and-true technology has been used since the 1960s, and represents the most common way to cure inks and coatings as part of the printing process. 

UV CURING - HOW IT WORKS:

UV curing is a process in which ultraviolet light is generated and used to solidify substances by causing a photochemical reaction that cross links polymers.

BENEFITS:

The greatest benefit of UV processes to printers when compared with IR and other "drying" methods is that it completely eliminates "drying time" - inks are instantly cured by the light once exposed to it. UV curing also improves quality because the risk of errors due to dust and airborne contaminants landing in the ink prior to drying is greatly reduced.

THE TITANIUM P3 UV SYSTEM:

Ergonomically designed to slide easily onto and off of the press, the Titanium UV curing system offers best-in-class curing for a conventional UV setup. A favorite of printers everywhere, this best-selling system is based on AMS Spectral UV's legacy P3 UV curing line, and represents its most advanced and functional rendition of that classic system. Works with multi-color sheet-fed offset presses from Heidelberg, KBA, Komori, manroland, Mitsubishi, Ryobi, Akiyama, Sakurai and others, as well as Web Offset and Flexo presses from most manufacturers. 

FEATURES:

  • reliable water-cooled system
  • self-healing shutters that guarantee realignment of reflectors
  • seamless water circuits that eliminate rubber hoses
  • mechanical parts are separated from module body to ensure no parts fall into the press
  • can be changed, cleaned and checked quickly easily, without tools
  • 100% electronic ballasts

BASIC SPECS:

PEAK IRRADIANCE: depends on application

WIDTHS: can be built as wide as 3.2 meters (126")

INDUSTRIES: SFO (sheetfed offset) and web lithography, flexography

THE QUADCURE UV SYSTEM:

This system is designed to provide maximum performance in a host of curing scenarios and environments. Built for the rugged requirements of sheetfed offset printing, it is designed to make lamp changes easy, and to achieve excellent curing with minimal power.

FEATURES:

  • Quicksnap couplings make replacement of lamp heads fast and easy, enabling fast replacement of lamps without tools
  • greenUV plus upgrade provides greater energy savings and less heat than standard model
  • whiteUV upgrade options provides optimized results when curing white inks
  • eco standby mode reduces power draw when lamps are in standby mode
  • Top and dedicated side reflectors help lamps securely cure from varied distances
  • single quick-release plug for power and control
