The FireJet FJ605 UV LED curing lamp for flexo


Phoseon Technology has introduced the FireJet FJ605 UV LED self-contained air-cooled curing lamp for flexographic applications at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago.

The FJ605 provides air-cooled irradiance up to 20W/cm2 with a three-year standard warranty. It is available in lamp lengths that cover the gamut of narrow and mid-web presses. It is ideal for applications that require up to 300m/min in print widths of 600mm or 675mm. Advanced digital interface capabilities provide tight process control, for example for low-migration processes for food packaging.

Sara Jennings, senior technical marketing engineer, said, ‘The FJ605 is a high-performance self-contained air-cooled solution that doesn’t require exhaust blowers or water chillers. This uses less system power when compared with traditional mercury and water-cooled offerings, saving convertors energy expenses while still operating presses at high speeds.’ 

The FJ605 has the performance necessary to increase speed capabilities and is compact enough to retrofit existing installed presses, giving convertors the opportunity to do more business now.

The curing lamp also supports a range of Phoseon technologies such as TargetSure Technology, a patent-pending technology that monitors UV irradiance in real-time, which was also debuted at Labelexpo Americas 2018.

The FJ605 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
