Press release from the issuing company
Efficiency, Economy and Ecology will be the central themes for Natgraph at next month's FESPA, as it showcases several revolutionary developments in drying/curing technology for the screenprinting industry, as well as a new stencil exposure system.
The Natgraph team will be on Stand 260 in Hall A1 in Munich, and are anticipating strong interest in their FESPA line-up which will spotlight the following advantages;
- Full electronic control for UV curing (no transformers), allowing the UV lamp power to be selected from the touch screen resulting in potentially massive operational savings
- Sheet detector systems, automatically lowering the power output of the selected UV lamps to the minimum power level when no substrate is detected
- Recipe saving of dryer settings - a feature previously only available as on option but now a standard feature on all Natgraph dryers, allowing the settings of any job to be recalled for future use
- Refrigerated cooling of 2m UV Modules - lowering the temperature within the UV module even further allowing an optimum belt speed to be used and lower UV power settings.
- Angled Exposure Unit for conventional and CTS exposure - this type of exposure system has many advantages over conventional units, these include; fully automatic operation via PLC, touch screen control, exposure of CTS (wax or ink jet) stencils, lower glass temperature (reducing positive distortion), easy frame loading/unloading, reduced possibility of glass scratching, etc.
Commenting on Natgraph's FESPA line-up, Commercial Director, Alan Shaw, said: "The screen printing process is viable, versatile and profitable as a method of applying surface coatings, especially in industrial and special purpose, high value end-product manufacture. Natgraph's, improvements to the efficiency of the drying process will result in a better yield, more economical operation and therefore a better ecological result. Our FESPA stand will offer great examples of what is now possible."
