IT-UV system comes from the spirit of innovation of G Technologies and from their strong research on drying processes applied to the graphic industry. This technological evolution was born thanks to the collaboration with an Italian company leader in ink and varnish industry that, together with G Technologies, has developed a series of highly reactive inks, suitable for both paper and plastic substrates. Moreover, R&D dept. of G Technologies, has realized a new system called IESC (Innovative Energy Saving Control), an innovative lamp feeding electronic system which replaces the old transformer and provides for the only necessary energy for drying. Thanks to this system there is no more need of violent electrical discharges to start lamps and, since there is no energy dispersions, energy consumption is highly reduced. Then on “stand-by” position it is possible to automatically and in real time reduce lamp power till recovering more that 80% of feeding energy, without the lamp to shut down. Finally, because lamps are only working at a specific wavelength, it is important to emphasize that no ozone is produced and so there is no need of additional ducts for the air exhaust. IT-UV system, together with the new power system IESC, brings significant economic benefits, thanks also to the ability of curing a four-colour printing by installing a single lamp at the delivery of the machine, reaching an immediate curing and a consequent reduction of downtimes between printing and further processing. These systems can be installed on both new generation machines and existing ones with specific “retrofit” treatment and it is possible to use other products on the market with the same features.
Therefore IT-UV system benefits are:
Immediate curing at maximum speed
Significant energy saving (IESC)
Drastic reduction of heat emission on “stand-by” position
No ozone emissionMore performance and longer lamp life
Possibility to make “retrofit” treatment on existing machines
Excellent gloss printing even on difficult substrates
