AMS's LED UV systems bring energy-efficient, heat-less, solid-state curing to sheetfed offset lithographic printers everywhere. Gone are powder-filled pressrooms, expensive IR/hot-air dryers, marking problems and waiting for sheets to dry. No other system provides the high intensity, flexibility and fast return on investment. With simple installations on nearly any type of press, AMS LED is helping customers reinvent their conventional sheetfed offset printing operations with stunning results and digital turnaround speed.
UV curing drys its inks instantly allowing for immediate work and turn, whilst eliminating spray powder.
Heat, ozone and mercury are eliminated from press rooms, making them safer and improving your overall environmental impact. UV inks are also free of solvents, preventing release of volatile organic compounds.
Value-added coatings can be used efficiently and effectively.
Instantly drying inks avoid excessive dot gain, which can look muddy or too full. Instead the ink dot is left sitting on top of the uncoated sheet, where it presents a cleaner less contaminated dot.
The inks dry through a photomechanical process. This creates the possibility of printing on non-porous and heat sensitive substrates.
