Flint hosts successful UV LED seminar

June 18, 2013

The seminar addressed the growing interest in UV LED systems for narrow web tag and label printing.

Flint Group Packaging and Narrow Web hosted more than 50 attendees at a technology seminar in its Plymouth, MN, USA Center for Technical Excellence on May 23, 2013. This seminar titled UV LED – The Future Is Today – the Time is Now! addressed the growing interest in UV LED systems for narrow web tag and label printing.

The seminar covered the various aspects of UV LED printing technologies – including ink and press systems, along with presentations on lamps and chillers, and also special print applications. Two highlights of this seminar included: a presentation by a printer in the US as they discussed their experience in implementing a UV LED system in their print operation, and the panel discussion which opened the floor to valuable conversation on implementation, return on investment, and the ecological impacts of UV LED technologies.

According to Flint Group, UV LED is a significant innovation for the narrow web industry. UV LED ink and press technology is the answer for economical and ecological sustainability. "Flint Group’s EkoCure UV LED flexo and screen inks are available now! This new generation of inks are running commercial jobs today with success at high press speeds with excellent print results: high color strength and deeper cure," the company says.
