Benefits of the system include huge increases to productivity, significant quality improvements, greater application versatility, cost and material savings, and a reduced impact not only
on the working environment, but on the environment as a whole. Illumina takes advantage of the very latest, high power but low heat LED UV curing technologies, along with Fujifilm’s renowned ink expertise, to deliver an ultra-reliable curing system with none of the disadvantages of higher power and higher temperature, UV lamps.
Also on display is the ACTIV LED UV curing system. In combination with the Fujifilm's new high performance Sericol JJ LED UV flexo inks, it allows any traditional UV flexo press to be converted to LED UV curing to deliver farreaching improvements to label production on a narrow web press.
Thanks to the high performance of the ACTIV LED UV curing system, productivity and quality improvements are significant. Not only can press speeds be increased, but job set up and make ready times can be reduced as there is less material distortion due to heat.
Improved substrate stability also results in a more controlled ramp up to production speeds, and it is often possible to achieve the required colours much faster with Fujifilm’s high performance Sericol JJ LED UV flexo ink system. Add to that improvements to the system reliability with much lower press down time, productivity gains can be significant. Quality also becomes more consistent as the impact of the heat from the UV lamps is reduced, resulting in better registration and less substrate distortion.
