NEW UVX STROBOSCOPIC INSPECTION IMPROVES QUALITY CONTROL FOR SECURITY PRINTING AND PACKAGING
Improvements expand coverage area and intensity to make inspection more efficient.
Saddle Brook, NJ September 23, 2020 - Unilux, the world leader in the design and manufacture of stroboscopic inspection lighting, has improved the capabilities of its portable UV inspection strobes. New UVX models improve efficiency by illuminating a larger area of UV-visible inks and optical brighteners so that defects can be seen at full production speed, anywhere on the press.
New and improved inspection strobes excite UV-visible inks and optical brighteners over a wider area, making it easy to spot issues across the entire web at once. Quality is confirmed without slowing production and the cause of defects can be corrected before a print run is ruined. By spreading the usable illumination more evenly, UVX strobes provide a truer representation of print or coating quality by eliminating hot spots.
“UV LED technology has improved since we introduced the first LEDUV inspection strobes 5 years ago,” said Mike Simonis, President, Unilux. “With UVX, we’ve leveraged the improvements using experience that only comes from decades of solving problems in security printing, cold seal, laminating and coating to meet our customers evolving requirements.”
Portable LED9 and LED12 UVX strobes provide the ability to inspect anywhere on the press and feature quick-change batteries for added convenience. Stationary inspection systems provide full-width inspection and feature Smart Assist controls, which make it easier to daisy-chain multiple units for the simultaneous inspection of standard and UV-visible inks and coatings.
