our latest custom engineered Lightouch Versiflex UV curing system project

The Government of Zambia has contracted our team to design and build a custom 40” wide 10-lamp, 600 WPI UV Curing system.

  • This custom UV curing system will be installed in-line on a new Miracle Press, web offset 10-station over/under “Perfecting” machine.
  • This particular Miracle Press includes a design with 5 upper print heads mounted in-line directly above 5 lower print heads to allow 5-over-5 print perfecting without using a web turn-bar assembly.
  • The press is designed to run at speeds above 2,000 FPM and requires a total of Ten (10) 600 WPI UV curing lamps (5 on top and 5 on bottom) mounted on a custom UV stand to fully cure all colors at high line speeds.
  • The robust aluminum alloy lamp heads are manufactured with cassette-style, clamshell designs allowing the operators to easily remove the lamp inserts for maintenance, as well as index the lamp heads up and down for webbing and cleaning.
  • The custom UV lamp mounting stand includes an integrated air plenum with dedicated exhaust blower to maintain web temperatures close to ambient for processing a variety of substrates.
