Conti Tipocolor Advances with AMS LED UV in Florence
Florence, Italy - Fourth generation Italian printing leader, and worldwide specialist in quality books and packaging, Conti Tipocolor just announced an all-new AMS LED UV printing capability on a Heidelberg CD 102 5-Color with Coater.
Niche printer, Conti is one of the world's top producers of fashion and museum-quality art books, with portfolio publications ranging from collections of renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz to works by artists on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the National Gallery in London.
"At Conti Tipocolor we are in a constant quest to present new technology to our customers, and we are extremely excited to introduce LED Printing, which offers tremendous benefits to the quality and repeatability in our production process" said Dr. Roberto Conti, Chairman and CEO. "Further, LED is a 'green UV' system and should not be confused with traditional UV, LE-UV or H-UV technologies".
The AMS XP9 Series LED system was selected as the engine for the new process on its Heidelberg CD 5-color plus coating press following a thorough review by the team at Conti Tipocolor. "AMS has more LED UV installations and experience than any other provider we met with, and their unique LED design provides Total Position Flexibility on our machine. This consequently met all of our needs transitioning to LED printing technology, and we could not be happier with our choice" added Dr. Conti.
