Nazdar Ink Technologies and Focus Label Machinery have collaborated to drive the growth of UV LED technology within the label converter market in the UK and EMEA.
With a mutual interest in the technology, both companies share an objective to showcase how alongside traditional products – UV LED curing technology is a commercially-viable option for the label and packaging producer.
James Thomas, Business Development and Marketing Manager at Focus Label Machinery explained, ‘We demonstrated Phoseon UV LED technology at our Open House event earlier this year. Following great feedback from visitors, we decided to fully fit our 6-colour e-flex press with Phoseon lamps and after completing some ink trials are now running Nazdar inks to demonstrate the benefits of UV LED technology to the label and packaging market.’
Jim Whitehead, Nazdar’s Sales Manager for EMEA, with responsibility for the flexo technology sector added, ’Many label and packaging converters don’t fully appreciate the breadth of UV LED curing ink products that Nazdar has – and the benefits they offer. We are thrilled to be able to support Focus Label Machinery with their push to demonstrate the technology and provide the newest UV LED curing equipment on the market.’
‘We are delighted to be working alongside a company such as Nazdar who have a wide experience in UV LED curing technology and depth of product range. The partnership will enable us to demonstrate the efficiency of UV LED curing technology and the full capability that the technology offers,’ Thomas concluded.
