LED-UV inks and varnishes are 100% cured directly after the LED lamp. As inks are dried instantly, marking of sheets nin the delivery or during the perfecting process is eliminated. The ink dries to a durable polymer which withstands solvents solvents and abrasion throughout the lifetime of the product. As a result, machine varnish or sealer is no longer necessary.
LED-UV curing avoids the need for spray powder on the machine. This eliminates the widespread contamination and associated time-consuming cleaning and maintenance while creating a cleaner work environment.
Instant drying of inks enables immediate finishing and much faster dispatch of jobs. Sheets can be folded, cut, bound and further processed right away, reducing work-in-progress and significantly shortening lead-times to customers.
Instant On/Off switching means that with LED no energy is consumed when the press is idle. The higher electrical efficiency of LEDs and purity of the UV output allow typical energy savings in excess of 50% compared with and H-UV lamp system.
The printer never waits for the UV lamps because GEW's LEDs' instant On/Off switching means no warm-up or cool-down cycles. Mechanical maintenance time is eliminated because no lamps, shutters or reflector mechanisms require servicing.
The MLA is a customizable arrangement of LED mounting positions on a printing press.
Lamps can be freely moved between any position to change curing configuration and adapt to the job at hand. For highly demanding applications (such as B1 LED coating at 18,000 SPH) multiple lamps can be placed in tandem at the end of the press.
This modular LeoLED configuration offers the ultimate in flexibility and enables GEW to deliver the highest energy dose in the market, at the best value.
Embedded Service - RHINO Control is connected to the internet and encrypted system performance data is sent live to GEW 24/7. This ensures the fastest and most precise response to service issues available in the industry.
System Performance Reports - Regular system performance reports are sent to nominated customer email accounts. These lay out energy usage, uptime % and a performance report to give unparalleled analysis of press productivity to operational management.
RHINO Touch Panel
Combined with comprehensive instruction and service manuals available from GEW, your press operators will have total confidence in their new UV system.
The Event Log continually records system use and operating parameters. The log can be checked to ensure the system is working at peak efficiency, avoiding energy waste and unplanned downtime.
Multilingual instructions are easily accessible on every screen ensuring operators can always fully understand the UV control.
Fail-Safe Operation - Military-grade electronic design protects the UV system from damage caused by incorrect voltage, short-to-ground, dropped phases, power spikes and lighting strikes. In the event of a serious power disruption, the system powers down in a safe mode.
RHINO is designed to run in harshest conditions at ambient temperatures of up to 140°F (40°C). The system is also unaffected by dust, ink mist and other atmospheric contaminants.
Lowest Operating Costs - With intelligent power management the current draw from each power phase is balanced and harmonic distortion is minimized, reducing the energy demand registered by the electric meter.
Minimal Footprint RHINO Rack - A compact cabinet that houses power supplies for up to 12 lamps and provides perfect cooling, atmospheric protection and power distribution.
Power supplies slide in to the rack and connect quickly, enabling more lamps to be easily added to the system in future.
5 Year Warranty Available - Using GEW's embedded service package gives total confidence in the reliability of GEW power electronics and minimizes unplanned maintenance costs.
GEW is the only UV supplier to offer this level of warranty as standard.
