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.
Nazdar Ink Technologies will once again be among the exhibitors at InPrint - the industrial print show - in Milan, Italy this November, showcasing its wide range of UV-LED, traditional UV, solvent and aqueous ink formulations to attendees.
The Mack Brooks Exhibition Group held its InPrint USA Industrial Inkjet Conference in Chicago, IL, May 1 to 2, 2018 at the Palmer House, a Hilton Hotel. The organization’s goal is to inform, inspire, and educate. Co-founders Frazer Chesterman and Marcus Timson led the event with opening remarks that addressed the growing popularity of inkjet printing in manufacturing and the need to educate potential users on its capabilities.
Nazdar Ink Technologies will once again be among the exhibitors at the InPrint Industrial Inkjet Conference and Exhibition in Chicago, USA this May. The company will introduce a number of its innovative UV-LED, traditional UV, solvent and aqueous ink formulations to attendees.
Under normal usage conditions these inks should pose no significant health hazard. However, no long history of safe use, as yet, has been determined. Consequently, Nazdar recommends that the following precautions be observed while emphasizing the role of plant supervision and management in enforcing these:
Roland DG recently showcased their newly-launched VersaUV S-Series UV-LED printer at InPrint in Munich. Visitors were captivated by the S-Series printing logos directly onto footballs – a quirky application intended to visually demonstrate the printer’s ability to image directly onto objects previously considered too high, too heavy or too complex for direct print.
