Flint Group shines spotlight on UV LED curing technology in new whitepaper

As the adoption of UV LED curing gains momentum among narrow web printers due to its numerous benefits, Flint Group has introduced a new whitepaper that closely examines this technology and the role of dual cure inks.

The whitepaper, tailored to assist printers and converters in transitioning from traditional mercurybased UV curing to UV LED systems, explores the rapid growth of LED curing technology and its significant impact on the narrow web printing sector.

With a focus on how sustainability, efficiency, and performance can work together, the whitepaper is a valuable resource for printers and converters seeking to stay ahead in the label printing industry.

The whitepaper touches key aspects that make UV LED curing a game-changer for narrow web printers, including:

• Energy Efficiency and Beyond: Explaining how UV LED curing can optimise power consumption and significantly reduce costs.
• Eco-Friendly Advantages: Exploring the environmental benefits of transitioning from traditional mercury-based UV curing to future-proof UV LED systems.
• Longevity and Cost Savings: Discussing how the impressive lifespan of UV LED units can enhance efficiency and minimise waste, ultimately saving money.
• EkoCure®: A sneak peek into the EkoCure® Dual Cure ink range from Flint Group.

Anna Niewiadomska, Marketing Manager Narrow Web at Flint Group, comments: “We pride ourselves on vast ink and coating expertise, but knowledge is meaningless if it can’t be shared for the benefit of the wider industry. That’s why we put such a key focus on developing industry whitepapers.

"In a market that continues to evolve dynamically, printers are experiencing increasingly tighter profit margins. Our whitepaper seeks to streamline the complexity and present the numerous cost and sustainability advantages of UV LED curing, which are of great interest to today's printers.
