RMGT to Feature LED-UV Curing Technology at Print UV Conference

Monday, February 01, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

MARIETTA, GA - Graphic Systems North America (GSNA), the Authorized Distributor for RMGT (RYOBI MHI Graphic Technology Ltd.) sheet-fed offset presses in North America, announces that it will repeat as a Platinum Sponsor the 9th Annual Print UV Conference, March 16-18, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference features technology tracks and roundtable discussions featuring the best UV printers and UV suppliers as they uncover new ideas and growth opportunities that UV printing enables.

“Our customers are leveraging LED-UV printing technologies and growing their business in so many different ways. In addition to traditional benefits, we are seeing customers use creative coatings and printing on unique substrates such as PVC, synthetic paper, and styrene,” states Chris Manley, President of Graphco, the Midwest Distributor for RMGT. “RMGT was the first press manufacturer to offer fully integrated LED-UV curing systems as a factory installed option for sheet-fed offset presses. We look forward to hearing our customers share their success stories and add our voice to the innovative dialogue around UV printing during the upcoming Print UV Conference.”

What is LED-UV Curing Technology?
UV printing allows printed sheets to be quick-cured by UV light immediately after printing, offering distinct advantages such as shorter lead time, powder-less printing, and printing on unique substrates. In 2008, RMGT became the first sheet-fed offset press manufacturer to commercially develop a next-generation, energy-saving, environmental-friendly LED-UV printing system. RMGT and Panasonic’s LED-UV technology was awarded Japan’s “Nippon Brand Prize” at the 39th Machine Design Award competition in 2009. It was also named a top new press technology at the 2013 Canadian Printing Awards.

Winning high praise among RMGT customers, the system continues to evolve. New versions of the LED-UV printing system have been added to enable varnish coating, greatly expanding the range of value-added printing and providing powerful support for customers. Since LED technology is used to cure UV inks, RMGT systems have a 15 times longer life span, consume 70 to 80% less electricity, and generate much less heat than a conventional lamp system, delivering an ROI in energy efficiency along with a greatly reduced environmental impact.
