Cutting-edge low energy flexo solutions @ LabelExpo!
In an ever-evolving industry, our commitment to sustainability and efficiency is unwavering. We understand the importance of reducing energy consumption without compromising on quality. That's why our UV, LED, and EB inks are designed to not only enhance print quality but also significantly lower energy consumption during the printing process. It's a win-win situation for both the printer and the environment.
With their quick curing properties, UV inks not only result in vibrant prints but also reduce drying time, allowing for faster production cycles.
They are energy efficient as their rapid curing process under UV light requires less energy compared to conventional drying methods.
They contain minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs), resulting in reduced emissions of harmful chemicals into the atmosphere.
They enhance productivity: UV inks facilitate faster printing speeds and increased durability, which can lead to resource savings and reduced production costs.
LED inks share many sustainability benefits with UV inks, making them an eco-friendly choice for various printing applications:
LED curing, similar to UV curing, consumes less energy than traditional drying methods. LED lamps use even less power than UV lamps, contributing to reduced energy consumption.
Moreover LED curing generates very little heat, which is especially advantageous when printing on heat-sensitive materials, and it can help lower the overall energy footprint of the printing process.
It offers instant drying and curing, which enhances productivity by reducing downtime and energy use associated with longer drying times.
And last but not least, LED lamps have a longer lifespan than traditional UV lamps, reducing the frequency of lamp replacement and waste generation
In summary, LED inks are recognized for their sustainability advantages, particularly in terms of energy efficiency, reduced emissions, and enhanced productivity in the printing process. Their eco-friendly characteristics make them a viable choice for environmentally conscious printing operations.
And what about EB?
EB curing is somewhat special as the curing process requires no photo initiators, which is considered advantageous due to the elimination of migration risks, reduction in allergenic potential, environmental benefits, and alignment with sustainability objectives. These factors make EB inks a preferred choice in certain applications, particularly those with stringent regulatory or environmental requirements.
Our presence at LabelExpo underlines our commitment to sustainability in the printing industry.
Come and see us from the 11th till the 14th of September in Hall 6 (6D26) to find out more!
Unveiling the art of de-inking
De-inking is a crucial part of paper recycling by removing ink to create high quality recycled paper and reduce the environmental impact. With our commitment to sustainability, we want to put the focus on creating inks with superior print quality while maintaining a high level of de-inking.
