We achieved a number of major business wins in flexographic and fiber optics markets in 2018 and significantly increased our manufacturing footprint implementing modern lean practices and automation. We also strengthened our presence in Asia. I am very proud of our team and am looking forward to more great accomplishments and growth in 2019.
Among the products and technologies that Phoseon debuted in 2018 were the FireJet FJ605, FireLine FL440 and FireEdge FE100 UV LED curing systems:
- The FJ605, a self-contained air-cooled UV LED curing lamp, for flexographic applications delivers substantially more curing energy than currently offered. The FJ605 was showcased at Labelexpo 2018 in a flexographic press operating at 1,000 feet per minute.
- The water-cooled FL440 was designed for the most performance demanding print and industrial curing applications, offering scalability to support custom length options. It delivers the most UV output available in the market with up to 135W per 25mm Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM) array.
- The FE100 is the first ever passive air-cooled UV LED solution on the market. It is specifically designed for digital inkjet pinning, with a width of less than 16mm, making it ideal for space constrained environments.
