Integration Technology Ltd (ITL)
bundle high output, low cost into energy-efficient LEDZero Pincure UV curing
for inkjet printing
High output, low cost and greater
energy-efficiency are key benefits in LEDZero Pincure, the latest advance in
integrating solid state UV curing into high-resolution inkjet print engines
from the market's number one innovator, Integration Technology Ltd (ITL).
The UK-based developer's latest solution can initiate a photochemical
reaction with a degree of precision not previously possible with bulb
Being air cooled, LED Pincure is more energy efficient than water-cooled
alternatives. Its UV LED lamp head and power supply uses as little as 16W of
electrical energy and at 125g reduces extra weight to printing carriages.
Its standard 80mm curing array is scalable by multiples of 80mm to suit
specific applications, a proposition currently unique to the international
The high intensity of the LEDZero Pincure ensures that each ink droplet is
frozen on the media as it is jetted, but with a surface energy tension which
readily accepts further droplets, giving an effective colour ‘lift' without
any inter-layer adhesion problems.
Furthermore, each array features infinitely variable output allowing it to
be ‘tuned' to the individual colour or type of ink being jetted.
The high speed switching of the LEDZero Pincure array allows it to be
switched on and off in sequence with the printhead, thereby eliminating the
risk of stray UV light reflecting back into the printheads and causing
Each array is normally supplied with an electronic drive card featuring a
switch mode power supply and precise variable control.
High intensity LED arrays need precise cooling to give optimum output: the
cooler the temperature of the LED's, the better the UV output.
The advanced air cooling system of the LEDZero Pincure ensures that it can
be placed alongside a heated printhead without any risk of thermal cross
The arrays can also be supplied complete with a suitable thermostatically
controlled heat exchanger and all necessary interconnection pipe work.
Designed in-house at ITL's R&D unit in the UK, the super slim LEDZero
Pincure is accurate, efficient and low-cost to buy and run, with no
consumable parts or service requirements.
