LED UV Turns Silver to Gold at Graph Expo 14
With the excitement of Graph Expo concluding on Wednesday, AMS highlighted it's most successful show ever, recapping some key messages from it's exhibition in the GREEN SPACE pavilion. With hundreds of visitors to the all-new AMS booth themed "I cannot imagine printing conventional again", the most important messages resonated as:
* The first long-perfector Five over Five LED UV press announced in North America, including a Q&A panel led by Carlisle Printing on Tuesday.
* New sheets showcasing High Gloss LED UV flexo coatings produced inline at full speed with a single XP7 Series LED UV lamp and ink type on multiple substrate types, including packaging board, paper, PVC, PP and satin coated stocks
* Stunning labels produced with LED UV on metalized paper, showing literally silver turn to gold in single pass production featuring opaque white inline on a label packaging press
* A packed house Seminar entitled "How to Profit with LED UV in Sheetfed Offset" on Tuesday, September 30 with exhibitor and partner, INX International
The success of the AMS exhibit echoed a broader message in the print industry as more printers discovered the advantages of switching to high performance LED printing as an alternative to conventional oxidative ink drying and less optimal forms of UV.
"We call it the 'LED Smile' said Paul Byron, head of AMS Mid-Format Sales in North America. "It's the shared excitement our customers experience as they discover the advantages of LED UV technology in their pressrooms. And they are willing to share that excitment with others. We couldn't be happier with the turnout and enthusiasm for AMS LED."
