JB Machinery & Phoseon Technology Enter Exclusive Global Sales Agreement for UV LED into the Sheetfed Corrugated Sector.
Industry pioneers and leaders JB Machinery Inc. (Weston, CT) and Phoseon Technology (Portland, Oregon) have entered into an exclusive global sales agreement for UV LED into the Sheetfed Corrugated Sector. Using the very latest U.S. manufactured LED technology; JB Machinery introduces the ColorCure® ‘Cold’ UV LED. UV overprint varnishes provide excellent gloss levels, full product protection and the ability for the converter to run at optimum production speeds with minimal downtime and waste. Utilizing the newest LED technology allows the user to apply UV overprint varnishes with significantly lower power requirements, overall power consumption and cooler surface temperatures.
UV LED also enables the flexibility to zone the UV output in correlation with the projected sheet size and image being printed with instant on/off curing, no warm-up or cool down cycles and no shutters or exhaust ducts. Other advantages of the LED technology include; superior life expectancy (up to 30,000 hours), low maintenance and a compact cassette design for ease of replacement with no limitations for application space in today’s press architecture, whether fixed frame or modular. JB Machinery President, Warren Bird states, “Having spent the last few years monitoring the development of UV LED through the experience and growth of our partners at Phoseon, we felt that our two organizations were perfectly aligned and ready to provide a proven solution that complements the entire JB portfolio of products. Pairing their market leading technology with our global footprint and OEM partnerships will provide a powerful launch and yet, another exciting possibility for our loyal and much appreciated end user customer base.”
Phoseon’s Sales Director Michael Beck added, “We are delighted to partner with JB Machinery and be the first choice solution for their UV LED system. LED technology is no longer an emerging technology and its benefits are numerous. Phoseon’s optimized performance; patented reliability and innovative technology are a perfect answer to advanced printing capabilities.”Tags: UV LED Technology | FlexoGlobal Magazine | JB Machinery
