Air Motion Systems (AMS), a US-based provider of high-power LED UV curing systems, has announced three new products to be introduced at Drupa 2016.
Faridabad-based APL Machinery, the Indian representative of AMS, will also be present at the show.
CP Paul of APL Machinery said, “We are projecting double digit installations in the coming year for LED UV. It is the future of printing. Our aim is to make the industry a better place with better technology.”
At Drupa 2016, AMS plans to commercialise a blended wavelength series LED module called MultiWave LED-UV. The system features a uniform blend of Wide Spectrum UV and LED wavelengths at equivalent power levels, and with a performance range designed for compatibility with many existing UV photoinitiator packages, including low-migration formulas. This development, according to the company means that the “ink prices for LED curing can now be similar to those of existing high quality UV inks”.
The company will also introduce a new low-profile LED module, called the XD Series, which is aimed at space-restricted machines which can be easily converted to LED printing. XD is an LED printing solution for printers who operate 520mm (20-inch) format machines with low pile designs from different manufacturers.
AMS will further unveil an extendable, high-power Air-Cooled LED UV architecture; known as the X-AIR Series. The system is designed for machines and applications where air cooling can be realised into the space of the machine. The modules, will offer a central connection to a blower manifold instead of relying on a series of onboard fans, which take up space and can lead to maintenance issues.
AMS will showcase all of its products, as well as numerous examples of LED UV printed quality, substrate variations, special effects and customer successes at its 115 sq/m stand in Hall 14, Booth 71.
