GEW has announced ArcLED, what the company calls the “first futureproof hybrid UV curing system.” The system enables an investment in Arc technology now to be upgraded later with LEDs, using the same lamphead casing and the same power supply and control. To achieve this, one simply adds the LED cassettes required, fits a water cooling system and the Rhino ArcLED power supply does the rest. It automatically recognizes which type of cassette is installed in the machine and adjusts the Rhino control accordingly; all the printer has to do is print. ArcLED switches seamlessly on the same press with the same Rhino power supply from DC power for the LEDs to high voltage AC for the arc lamps. GEW says Rhino ArcLED is extremely energy efficient, showing considerable energy savings when compared to conventional electronic power supplies.
