ProUV is a fully-integrated curing system with power and is air located on-press within a single cabinet, helping converters maintain a smaller pressroom footprint. In addition to its ergonomic feature, ProUV provides high efficiency (up to 94%) power supplies, which can be expected to yield significant energy savings.
Fully adaptive ventilation control keeps the UV lamps at the optimal temperature in every environment, allowing a greater temperature variance for converters that translates to lower energy costs. It is known that an over-cooled lamp will be less effective and an overheated lamp will decrease efficiency and lamp life expectancy.
ProUV monitors the lamp plasma to keep it at its optimal temperature. No matter where a customer is located, the system will self-adapt. For example, with ambient air at 10°C (50°F), ProUV dampers will close to keep lamp temperature stable and the blower will slow down. With ambient air at 30°C (86°F), the dampers will open and the blower will increase its speed. All this is done automatically, with no human intervention needed.
This solution also offers a filtered lamp head for added lamp durability. This ensures that as the environmental factors are being pulled inside the lamp with the air, particles that can cause hot spots and cracks are being filtered out. This filter is a unique feature of ProUV and increases the lifespan of the lamps.
The curing system is a great solution to evaluate when considering a new press purchase or an update to an existing flexo or digital hybrid label printing solution. ProUV is currently available as a standard option on Mark Andy’s Evolution Series E3 flexo press.
