As a leading expert for UV curing technology, GEW has become a key player in the design and manufacture of UV systems for web printing and coating up to 2.50m wide. The focus of GEW’s presence at the show was its enhanced range of high-power LED UV systems.
The company also showed its E2C model, the most powerful low energy UV curing system for narrow web presses. The E2C UV curing system, with RHINO electronic power supply, takes curing of inks and coatings to new levels of productivity and print run security. Safe for the widest range of heat-sensitive materials, with no heat transfer to the machine or substrate at stand-by through the use of actively air-cooled shutter technology, E2C RHINO systems come with the additional benefit of a 5-year warranty.
GEW also displayed a new multi-point UV monitor (mUVm), a major innovation for UV curing installations. This next-generation monitor continuously measures UV intensity across the web, which is vital to avoid the risks and consequences of undercured product reaching the customer. With this highly reliable and cost-effective solution it is now possible to attain 100% UV inspection and to generate a UV curing certificate for every batch, by recording live outputs for every lamp. Furthermore, the new monitor is designed to comply with a broad range of European legislation on food contact packaging.
