GEW has released Magic Carpet, a faster version of its LED UV curing lab system. The system is for those developing and testing new UV LED ink formulations.
The ‘Magic Carpet’ LED lab system incorporates the same LED curing module designed for full production printing and coating applications to reflect genuine production scenarios. The new version is now capable of a maximum curing power of 18W/cm squared and speeds of up to 100m/min.
A sample tray, driven by a linear actuator, is passed under the UV array in a precise, controlled and repeatable manner. UV output and sample tray speed can be separately adjusted by set increments as required. In addition to having a simple magnetic hinged sample tray, the unit can also accommodate an EIT radiometer for precise UV power measurement. The LED array is height adjustable between 5-25mm to suit specific test items and scenarios.
