The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a new poster listing steps all workplaces can take to reduce the risk of exposure to coronavirus.
While UV LED curing in the digital printing space has grown significantly over the past decade, most screen-printing operations have continued to use traditional curing technology. The primary obstacle wasn’t the readiness of the technology, but the cost. Until recently, LEDs were expensive, and the need in a screen-printing line to cure the full width of the print at once meant that many more LEDs were required compared to a wide-format inkjet printer. This tended to limit early development in the screen-printing industry to containers and other smaller formats where equipment cost was less of a factor.
Proven advice for industrial applications and other situations where delivering less-than-flawless prints isn’t an option.
Nazdar Ink Technologies has partnered with Focus Label Machinery to help drive the growth of UV LED technology within the label converter market in the UK and EMEA.
The two businesses are now working closely together to demonstrate the efficiency of UV LED curing technology at Focus Label Machinery's Bingham, Nottinghamshire-based offices.
With a mutual interest in the technology, both companies share an objective to showcase how - alongside traditional products - UV LED curing technology is a commercially-viable option for the label and packaging producer.
