ITL/IST forge one-stop shop for UV LED solutions at LabelExpo 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Single sourcing UV solutions for all applications is a dominant feature of the 2011-forged strategic alliance of curing systems developers Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) and IST METZ GmbH  

Both companies exhibit the full spectrum of products for the label printing industry and other industrial applications at this month’s LabelExpo (Sept 25-27th 2013, Brussels).

On Stand 9F34, ITL introduces to the label industry for the first time the all new LEDZero Solidcure 2 range while offering visitors a special preview of its new VZero LED air-cooled system, which is making its world debut at the show.

Initially launched in July this year, the all new LEDZero Solidcure 2 (above) offers class-leading dose and linearity of output that surpasses other water-cooled units of this type and is also available in a HD (high dose) version which delivers twice the dose of the standard model to match even the most demanding of high speed curing applications.

The slim, ultra-compact architecture of the LEDZero Solidcure 2 enables easy integration while water-cooling provides precision high output. Benefitting from the latest in semi-conductor development, the Solidcure 2 also offers a highly efficient UV LED solution that further reduces energy and cooling input.

Fully scalable in length, it can also be tailored to meet the widest of UV LED requirements in a variety of different machines and applications.

The high speed curing capability of this ground-breaking technology will be demonstrated on a 2 colour flexo-press onthe stand (5D45) of ITL’s technology and marketing partner IST.

IST will also be demonstrating under the “UVLED Ready” banner the world’s first “cross over” conventional UV systems, whereby the standard MBS®-6 UV lamp cassettes can be exchanged for UV LED cassettes utilising the same housings and interconnecting services - a technology that successfully marks the company’s sustained development of energy-efficient UV label printing.

Further working examples of Solidcure 2 and other models from the extensive range of ITL UV LED solutions can be found at the show on a range of both digital and flexo label presses. A full list of these working demonstrations can be obtained from either the ITL or IST stands.

Soon-to-be released, ITL’s VZero LED system is an elegant, compact and modular solution that utilises all of the proven features and benefits of its sister arc product and incorporates them into an LED alternative, unrivalled by any other product in the market.

VZero LED joins an already impressive line-up of new air-cooled UV LED solutions unveiled by ITL during 2013 as the ‘top of the range’ model, and thanks to advanced semi-conductor technology and cooling design offers a high intensity and high dose output that previously was only possible with water-cooled models.

The flexible architecture allows long versions to be produced in scale increments of 90mm and options include 4 different wavelengths of LED’s to be selected to give a perfect match to any chosen ink or coating chemistry.
