The Ultra 200/A UV Coater and the SF-200 Suction Feeder, distributed by Duplo USA Corporation, have received the seal of approval from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and have been issued the coveted UL mark. It indicates the products met rigorous safety standards for use in printing environments and were found in compliance with U.S. requirements. The Ultra 200/A was also evaluated for applicable Canadian requirements and has been issued the ULC mark.
“The UL mark is the most trusted safety certification in North America and we’re excited the Ultra 200/A UV Coater has been determined to be in compliance,” says Peng Chou, product manager at Duplo USA. “It is very difficult for UV coaters to receive UL approval. UV coaters require high heat and sheets can be prone to catching on fire if safety standards are not met. All components of the Ultra 200/A, including electrical, were thoroughly tested and evaluated and print providers can be rest assured with the product and their operator’s safety.”
The Ultra 200/A UV Coater applies high quality glossy or satin finish to a variety of offset and digitally printed pieces, enhancing the richness of its colors as well as protecting them from scratches and scuffing. Providing the same functionality as the Ultra 200, the Ultra 200A comes standard with the SF-200 Suction Feeder for feeding high volume jobs and features innovative technology to accomplish a smear-free finish when coating the two sides of the document. Both the Ultra 200 and Ultra 200A UV Coaters provide the utmost safety throughout the entire process with numerous detection sensors in place while the UV lamp’s ventilation draws out heat from the main chamber providing safe operating temperatures at all times. All Ultra UV Coaters are also CE certified. For more product information, please visit www.duplousa.com.
