Ringsted, Denmark (PRWEB UK) 3 September 2014
In May 2013, Glunz & Jensen A/S acquired an initial 16.8 % stake in Othonia Curing Technology A/S (Othonia). Othonia develops an innovative computer-controlled UV LED concept for curing surfaces which is replacing the original mercury lamp technology.
UV LED lamp offers instant on/off technology, removing the need for warm-up time. The lamp also offers an extreme accurate and flexible wave-length operation.
The biggest advantage of using UV LED lamp technology is the 60% energy power savings along with complete removal of mercury disposal, ozone and heat emission – a very environmentally friendly solution.
LED technology provides many opportunities for the use of UV LED in different industries. Glunz & Jensen has chosen to exploit the following three areas:
The initial field tests show very promising results and Glunz & Jensen plan to launch the first commercial product in the first quarter of 2015.
Glunz & Jensen is in close dialogue with printing press manufacturers and has performed an initial concept evaluation, showing very promising results.
Initial testing during the last quarter proves a strong concept and Glunz & Jensen is currently designing a field test module for the evaluation in a real production environment. The first field test unit is expected to be installed at a Danish customer site in October 2014.
Moving forward, Glunz & Jensen and Othonia will cooperate on the development and commercialisation of the technology. Othonia’s products will be marketed by Glunz & Jensen.
