Charlotte, NC – GEW's mini laboratory UV curing unit is a must for any ink room working with UV inks. Since HarperScientific division of global anilox supplier Harper Corporation is the leader in bladed hand ink proofers, it only makes sense that they now can offer and promote the GEW Mini-Lab unit for its North and South American customers.
The 88-pound (40kg) mini lab UV curing unit with its simple controls and ozone-free UV lamp can be operated away from printing and coating lines. It offers a belt and curing width of 6 inch (150mm). Using constant UV lamp power the mini lab unit controls curing dosage by varying belt speed from 16.4 to 229.6 feet per minute (5 to 70 meters per minute).
Included as standard is GEW's focused dichroic reflector with 80W/cm (200W/in). An exhaust fan/on-board cooling system keeps the unit running at peak performance even after many hours of full speed operation.
The mini lab's 220/240 V 50/60 Hz single phase 13 amp power supply fits with most workplace locations. Available options include in-feed and out-feed sample catching trays, iron and gallium doped lamps, spare UV cassettes and UV lamps and an inert gas nitrogen atmosphere capsule for inert curing applications.
Tony Donato, Harper Product Development Engineer, said his company's association with GEW reflects the Harper philosophy of providing customers with tools and Technologies that complements our Phantom family of bladed hand proofers.
"The combination of Harper ink proofers with GEW's UV curing unit will increase the productivity of the UV ink techs. GEW mini laboratory unit will help maximize the number of ink draw downs per shift helping the ink room to deliver press ready inks to the press room on time day after day," Donato said.
