Phoseon Technology has introduced the FireJet™ FJ605 UV LED self-contained air-cooled curing lamp for flexographic applications at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago.
The FJ605 introduces market-leading air –cooled irradiance level up to 20W/cm2 with a three-year standard warranty*. It has increased total UV output power performance for superior dose delivery, an advanced control interface and is available in lamp lengths that cover the gamut of narrow and mid-web presses.
The FJ605 was designed for press manufacturers and convertors looking for market-leading performance and digital control. It is ideal for applications that require up to 1,000 fpm (300m/min) in print widths of 600 mm or 675 mm and advanced digital interface capabilities for tight process control, such as low-migration processes for food packaging.
“The FJ605 has several advantages over its competitors in the market,” said Sara Jennings, Phoseon’s Senior Technical Marketing Engineer. “For example, it’s a high-performance self-contained air-cooled solution that doesn’t require exhaust blowers or water chillers. This uses less system power when compared with traditional mercury and water-cooled offerings, saving convertors energy expenses while still operating presses at high speeds.”
The FJ605 has the performance necessary to increase speed capabilities of market leading presses and compact enough to retrofit existing installed presses, giving convertors the opportunity to do more business now.
In addition, the FJ605 supports the following patented technology enhancements:
TargetSure™ Technology, a patent-pending technology that monitors UV irradiance in real-time, that Phoseon also debuted at Labelexpo Americas 2018.
WhisperCure™ Technology to deliver leading edge air-cooled performance at reduced decibel levels creating a quieter and safer environment for operators
TargetCure™ Technology delivers fast performance uniformity with the instant on and off capability of LED and reliability of performance over the life of the lamp.
The FJ605 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
