F400 V.5 UV/LED
Cold UV Lamp System
The Argos cold UV lamp system avoids heat radiation in direct contact with the media. The cold UV cassette system is a complete encapsulated lamp, which uses constantly PLC driven cooling technology. The temperature of the entire cold lamp cassette, as well as the heat transfer to the media doesn’t reach more than 30° Celsius or 86° Fahrenheit. A quartz filter prevents direct contact between the lamp and media, filtering out the IR heat radiation of the lamp, resulting odorless coated paper. The intelligent sleep mode function between jobs attributes to substantial saving on the electricity bill. And the unique sensor sheet tracking system provides the highest safety standards eliminating media burns while constantly tracking media throughput.
Air-Cooled LED Lamp System
With the polymer makeup of LED varnishes and the low heat of the UV diodes, much higher gloss levels can be achieved over conventional UV or H-UV curing. Higher color fidelity and sharpness is achieved through trapping and flash curing the varnish on the surface of the media. Because UV light emitting diodes produce 100% of their spectral output in the UV range, they avoid the problem of heat generation common in H-UV, HR-UV, LE UV and standard mercury UV arc lamps, where infrared heat, convection heat and wasted spectra account for up to 80% of the lamp output. And there is a further benefit… Led printed sheets do not smell of the noxious odors released from heat-activation of chemicals within substrates. Unlike any other means of curing, LED retains a true freshness to the printed material.
Wax Based Toners Optional Kit
Wax toner printing systems change the surface tension of the printed surface in such a way that document finishing becomes complex. Not for the Argos Coaters, we use a special IR lamp system with borosilicate tempered glass between the IR lamp and the media. This glass and the unique cooling system avoid media burns. The unique IR lamp system necessary for typical wax based toner cut sheet printer such as; all Ricoh, Canon, Xerox and Konica Minolta printers and also for the Fujifilm inkjet & Jet Press 720. Argos Flatcoaters can run without IR for prints coming from Canon i300 inkjet press, Xerox Brenva, Xerox iGen. Output from roll feed solutions (after cutting) such as Xeikon toner based, Xeikon inkjet, Screen Truejet & Ricoh VC60000 printers.
