A clever modular basic concept combined with its extremely robust and compact design allows the user maximum flexibility and versatility. The system is freely scalable in length and can be adapted to all machine formats and installation situations. This makes it possible to use a LEDcure unit at different positions on a machine. In combination with decades of experience in tailor-made machine integration, the compact design ensures the user access to important areas of the printing press at any time.
XT8 Booster: Synergies effectively used
The new LEDcure completes the entire redesigned LED solution range, which IST offers together with its subsidiary Integration Technology Ltd. (ITL). Synergies between the two companies increasingly come into effect, such as XT8 Booster. Thanks to the new booster technology, the LEDcure has up to 30% more power than conventional LED systems. Other highlights of the new LEDcure include the simple exchange of the optics or the possibility of retrofitting the LED chips.
Performance paired with flexibility
At the usual distance of 50 mm to 100 mm from the substrate, the new LEDcure offers a very high performance in sheetfed offset printing. This is not only due to the maximum irradiation intensity, the so-called peak, but the wide irradiation field of the LEDcure also offers an extra drying time, also called dose. It is often as decisive for efficient curing of the LED colours and lacquers as the peak. As a result, customers and suppliers of consumables have more flexibility in the design and choice of paints and varnishes.
- instant drying of inks and coatings
- no colour change
- brilliant print results, perfect gloss with inline coating
- higher mechanical resistance compared to oil-based colours
- solvent-free ink and coating systems
- easier and faster production on plastics, metallised and uncoated materials
- space and time saving: short processing times since no storage space required for drying time before further processing
