Lightweight, micro UV curing
breaks new ground for ITL at FESPA 2008
The potential of the compact size and low weight of a new generation of UV
inkjet curing systems to expand process applications has impressed visitors at
January's FESPA 2008.
New MZero is the latest development from Integration Technology Ltd (ITL), a
pioneering designer and developer of ultra-violet (UV) curing solutions for
inkjet printing and emerging technologies.
'Baby' MZero is particularly suited to variable information printing,
small/medium size printer/plotters and production line marking and encoding.
Features attracting potential customers include the high intensity reflector
system, the quick change attachment and rapid warm-up and cool-down.
The new range has been a long time coming at the Oxfordshire, UK based
"The relatively protracted gestation of MZero from original concept in 2002 to
prototype in 2006 and subsequent full production reflects the complexity and
precision demanded in the miniaturisation of UV technology, where manufacturing
tolerances are ultra-critical," explained ITL managing director, Adrian
Lockwood, adding that it nonetheless had proved worth the wait.
"FESPA visitors were taken with MZero's compact size and low weight, said
"The industry appreciates that the miniaturisation of the technology equates
with a contrasting expansion of application potential, and that's an exciting
prospect for all."
The ITL range
MZero represents the smallest and lightest UV systems available, offering a
highly versatile and cost effective solution for small format printers, coding
and marking and small scale industrial applications. The range is suitable also
for marking and encoding (bar codes, date codes, product I.D. etc.), small area
printing (e.g. wine bottle caps) and the manufacture of contact lenses and
other optical products.
VZero was ITL's launch product in 2000 and remains one of the most effective,
high output, high quality UV emitters for its size on the market today. The
VZero is configured for a variety of inkjet and industrial applications
including large and grand format inkjet printers.
Sub Zero range is currently the leading selling UV inkjet system and is
suitable for OEMs developing medium format printers and marking and encoding
applications using 20mm inkjet heads. With a reduced footprint and ultra-light
weight, it offers the most effective, lightweight, high output, miniature UV
emitter on the market.
PZero was originally conceived for applications where partial (low power)
curing might be required mid-process. New market applications such as digital
web printing demonstrate growing potential for the solution.
