The benefits of UV LED print technology

Wide-format printers equipped with UV LED lamps provide a number of unique economical, ecological and business-generating benefits:

  • A broader scope of print applications
    LEDs are cool to the touch and have minimal heat output, which is why they allow for a broader scope of print applications. They enable you to print on heat-sensitive substrates such as thin slides, self-adhesive sheets or stretched PVC materials, for example. Limited heat generation also enables very stable calibration.
  • Faster operations, higher productivity
    LED lamps can be switched on and off instantly, without any degradation of intensity. That means there is no lamp warm-up time or delay for shutter motion. The result? Faster operations and higher productivity. No need for operators to wait before they can start working.
  • Highly durable
    LEDs are highly durable, lasting for 10,000 hours, which means that dependent on the usage they can last as long as five years or up to a printer’s lifetime. They generate a consistent output throughout their lifespan with no lamp change downtime or any consumable lamp costs.
    As less heat is dissipated from a LED lamp, it is easier to keep the media flat under the shuttle. This eliminates head crashes and thus less need for rework that would waste media and ink. In addition, a LED system contains fewer parts that might require replacement, such as shutters and mirrors.
  • Significant energy savings
    LEDs have a lower energy consumption than the mercury bulb lamps, which leads to significant power savings and a higher ROI in the long run.
  • Greener
    As UV LED lamps don’t contain mercury, there is no need for mercury disposal or any related costs. Also, LEDs don’t produce ozone gas that needs to be extracted by ventilation.
