There is a growing, global industry movement towards eco-friendly UV LED curing, and we are thrilled to highlight the recent successes from our customers and partners of this exciting technology at PRINT 13.

UV LED curing systems technology leader Air Motion Systems | AMS is set to showcase the latest generation power series from its award-winning Peak LED-UV platform for instant UV curing in high speed offset, flexo and inkjet printing applications. AMS is exhibiting the new system along with numerous samples from customers at the international PRINT 13 show in Chicago, scheduled to begin next week on September 8th.

HIGH POWER UV LED CURING FOR SHEETFED OFFSET, FLEXO and INKJET PRINTING AT PRINT 13

AMS's newest product series, the XP5, generates the industry's highest radiant energy intensity at meaningful working distances from a UV LED curing lamp module, and is available in a small form factor and in a unlimited range of curing lengths, allowing for rapid deployment in new and retrofit offset, flexographic and inkjet printing presses. AMS is the world leader in retrofitting environmentally superior UV Light Emitting Diode curing technology to conventional printing equipment.

Instant drying, energy savings, elimination of anti-marking spray powder and cylinder jackets, and removal of heat along with speed, uptime, and curing production consistency, are the top reasons for adopting UV LED lamp systems over traditional methods of drying according to AMS President and CEO, Steve Metcalf. "There is a growing, global industry movement towards eco-friendly UV LED based curing, and we are thrilled to highlight the recent successes from our customers and partners of this exciting technology at PRINT 13 next week," said Metcalf.

LED systems from AMS can be deployed as 100% standalone LED curing solutions, or can be combined with high efficiency standard UV ARC lamp modules, known as C-LED Titanium UV modules, for maximum effect and energy savings on the widest range of LED and existing UV energy curable inks, coatings and varnishes.

RECIPIENT OF A 2013 MUST SEE 'EMS AWARD

The recipient of a 2013 MUST SEE 'EMS award, the XP5 Series UV LED system has already become a critical technology in the field of sheetfed offset lithographic printing since its unveiling at the drupa show last year. Unlike other forms of high reaction energy curing, including Low Energy and High Wavelength UV mercury lamp systems that attempt to mimic the output of LED through the use of an iron-doped mercury bulb, the XP5 Series LED UV system from AMS reduces the energy requirement by a half, and does not require a UV prepared press for installation. In addition, the lifetime and curing consistency of the ozone and mercury-free XP5 LED lamps do not degrade every 750-1000 hours like their mercury lamp (Hg) counterparts. And damaging heat is not emitted into the press or sheets.

LED UV printing inks and varnishes are now available from a diverse group of manufacturers, a select set of whom will be on display at the AMS exhibit in the GREEN PAVILION at PRINT 13 (booth 563) taking place September 8-12 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

AMS is set to announce multiple new customers of its Ultraviolet LED curing technology and implementation success stories in conjunction with PRINT 13, and AMS and its partners will be on hand to host and present a UV LED Curing Seminar on Tuesday, September 10th, room S404BC at McCormick Place South (4th Level) from 12:30-1:30pm.
