Why do we need UV LED retrofits for UV printers

UV printing technology has been widely promoted. UV printing technology refers to the use of ultraviolet light to dry

and cure the surface ink of printed products, making the finished product more exquisite. With UV curing, the light source

is critical. At present, many printers still use traditional mercury lamps.

For mercury lamps, we all know that it will not only affect human health, but also pollute the environment. With the

development of the times, the advancement of technology and the maturity of research, uvled light sources have gradually

developed. UVLED curing light source is a kind of green light source, which is suitable for many industries. In the UV printing

industry, UVLED curing light sources are gradually entering the printing industry. UVLED is constantly developing. I believe

UVLED can completely replace the importance of mercury lamps in the printing industry in the near future. UVLED light

sources can replace mercury lamps because they have the following advantages.

1. The service life of the light source is so long, the life of the uvled light source can reach more than 20,000 hours, and the

life of the mercury lamp is only about 1500 hours, which needs to be replaced frequently.

2. It can be used immediately without preheating and can reach the maximum power in an instant.

3. Fast curing speed, generally only takes a few seconds, and the cured product can be immediately put into the next process to

improve production efficiency.

4.Small size, easy to move and install.

5. Reduce equipment investment and save costs. The UVLED light source has a long life, and the number of times of opening

and closing does not affect the life of the light source, which can reduce the number of replacements of equipment, reduce

equipment investment, and save costs.

6.It dosn’t contain mercury and other volatile toxic substances, not only will not have unhealthy impact on workers, will not

affect the environment, is a green light source.

Shenzhen Height-LED already has the ability to retrofit uvled for printing presses, and there are also successful conversion

case, which can be customized. Welcome to consult.
