AETEK UV Curing System for Web Printing - UVXL

The UVXL air-cooled arc lamp UV curing system is truly universal and combines more than 35 years of Aetek UV experience in supplying proven systems and reliable technology for a wide variety of industries and applications. Both custom and standard systems are available to allow UV curing of inks, coatings and varnishes to enhance the appearance and impart unique properties to the finished product.

The UVXL system uses medium-pressure, mercury arc lamps. The outer housing, reflector support and shutters are specially designed aluminum extrusions that provide maximum strength and cooling efficiency, while being lightweight and easy to handle for maintenance. The reflector has an inner liner that is easily replaced to maintain curing at peak efficiency. Systems can be supplied for new narrow- or wide-web presses through the OEM or as a retrofit on existing machines. UVXL can be installed where space on the machine is limited.


Curing Applications
UV inks, varnishes, laminating adhesives and coatings on paper, metal, films, foils and wood products.

Lamp Module
The arc lamp cassette module removes easily for quick access and service. Lamp power, control and pneumatics are provided through utility connections on the housing for simple installation and disconnection. Depending on lamp legnth, optional additive lamps can be supplied to provide increased cure capability for heavy ink laydowns. Using special base configurations, the outer lamp housing can be lifted for access and web threading.
