Air Motion Systems | AMS UV, Booth 563
Air Motion Systems | AMS UV will introduce its award-winning XP5 Series LED UV Curing System to the North American market at PRINT 13. The XP5 Series LED UV system delivers up to six times the curing intensity of mercury-based lamps for higher speeds and more thorough and predictable curing at just 50 percent of the power consumed, while eliminating the heat, ozone, mechanical shutters, warm-up time, bulb replacements, and safety hazards of conventional UV and High Wavelength “H-type” UV curing systems. And owing to its small profile and no need for air exhaust runs or lengthy UV press preparation, the XP5 can be integrated quickly into multiple types of machines.
Autobond, Booth 112
Autobond will demonstrate the Mini 76 thermal film laminator, equipped with an in-line inkjet spot UV (SUV) machine and a high-speed flying knife cross-cutter, neither of which have been exhibited in North America before. The resulting configuration, the Mini 76x105 TH-CC with a 52 SUV, is comprised of a one-sided, thermal thin film, sheet-fed laminator equipped with a Heidelberg Speedmaster 74 feed-head, a flying knife cross-cutter, and spot UV varnishing machine.
Capable of producing applications with gloss effects and braille-like feel, the technology uses inkjet print-heads to spot print UV varnish in-line with lamination in a single pass. It can also be ordered as an offline unit with a top loading suction drum hopper feeder or optional rising pile feed head.
The flying knife cutter, available in 30- or 41-inch widths, is capable of running polypropylene (OPP), polyester (PET), and nylon applications at up to 200 fpm. It can also be adapted to run two-sided thick film applications, edge seal, and flush cut, or for pressure-sensitive applications such as floor and window graphics, magnet lamination, and metalized film.
