Dusseldorf Germany. Air Motion Systems, the world leader in LED UV and UV curing announced the release of their first ever LED UV "Look Book", at drupa 2016. The "Look Book" showcases the capabilities of sheetfed litho cured with LED UV. The cover features both high gloss spot coating and reticulation, which is known as "Drip Off" in Europe and "Strike Through" in North America. Also featured is the print quality and versatility of LED UV sheetfed litho on coated, uncoated clear plastic and white plastic substrates.
The piece was produced at KonigsDruck in Germany. Olaf Konig, CEO said. "On our new KBA Rapida 106 LED press, print quality, brilliance and production speeds have reached new highs. And with innovative inks, coatings and synthetic papers, we have more to offer our customers than ever bfore. With AMS and LED the future is very bright".
The piece was designed by the prestigious firm, Rosendahl Berlin. Anja Rosendahl said "Timeliness plays such an important role in the fashion and retail area. With new LED-UV technology at Konigsdruck, we can now produce better quality work even faster. This gives us more time for creative development beforehand and total confidence in production."
Steve Metcalf, president of AMS said. "We are pleased, but not surprised by the impact of the new "Look Book". Brilliant process print enhanced by the "Drip Off/Strike Through" effects of the cover give it a tactile feel, with high gloss areas and matte effect areas. Visitors to our stand at drupa were amazed it was achieved inline at full speeds on a 6 color litho press."
Carsten Barlebo, AMS EMEA said, "LED UV has truly arrived and is the future of UV curing. The "Look Book" is undisputable evidence of the quality and versatility of LED UV in the hands of a quality print house like KonigsDruck. The vibrant process print on a wide variety of substrates is a great showcase for LED UV."
Drupa attendees are invited to stop by the AMS stand to receive their own copy of the new "Look Book". Others are invited to call AMS at +1 715-425-5600 for a personal copy.
