Label printers warm to latest
mini high-output curing at Label Expo 2009
Reduced weight and footprint coupled to increased ultra-cool output
characterised a star turn in digital print curing at last month’s Label Expo
show in Brussels where ultra-violet (UV) curing systems developer Integration
Technology Ltd (ITL) exhibited for the first time.
Showing in a new hall dedicated to digital print technology, ITL offered up in
LEDZero Solidcure a compact, lightweight, high intensity output curing solution
that effectively enables the inkjet label printers short-run lengths and zero
job time changes.
Year on year attendance may have been down slightly overall at the show but the
new digital hall was well attended, ITL sales director David Johnson reported.
"The adage that in a recession you look for added-value innovation certainly
rang true at this show," he said.
"We had a lot of printers on the stand to witness for themselves how ultra-cool
curing enables printing of very thin films without the risk of heat damage.
Added advantages such as having a longer service life than normal UV lamps, no
ozone emissions and the ability to change individual tiles within it rather
than replace the whole array in the event of damage were very well received,
"This was a worthwhile foray into a potentially new market," he summed up. "We
picked up an encouraging number of quality enquiries out of which we have
already set up several demonstrations and trials. We have already booked our
stand for Label Expo 2011."
Intense commitment to R&D has
positioned the ITL brand globally as a byword in innovation and quality.
Founded in 2000, ITL designs and assembles a growing range of UV curing
solutions for a variety of inkjet printing and industrial applications.
The company - winner of a 2009 Queens’s Award for International Trade - serves
the industry’s foremost OEMs, integrators and system developers and provides
support from regional offices in Europe, the USA and Far East.
