Bruckmuehl, June 2019
adphos Digital Printing GmbH, one of the world’s leading experts in inkjet drying and curing, hosted 45 experts of their respective industries during the adphos Open House event with focus on Digital Print solutions. The event took place on May 16-17, 2019 at the adphos headquarters in Bruckmühl, Germany. In co-operation with profi-tec | profi-jet GmbH, Germany, the European distributor of MCS Incorporated, USA, MCS’ high-speed inkjet-printing system the “TK1740” was demonstrated in conjunction with an adphos NIRWeb-IV-20. Furthermore, a single shed fed application in cooperation with Popp Maschinenbau GmbH and palamides GmbH was shown.
During the course of presentations from industry experts and customer testimonials, live-demonstrations showed the possibilities of high-speed inkjet printing enabled by aNIR-dryer technology. adphos demonstrated in their laboratories, hands on drying and curing trials on a wide variety of substrates.
A Bavarian dinner closed the first day and gave the participants the opportunity to review the day and talk about the impressions in a cosy atmosphere. One-to-one meetings rounded of the event on Friday and closed the second day.
A focus on high-speed InkJet-Printing
adphos supported the event with its 25 years’ experience in thermal processing. Through the investigation and delivery of thousands of drying/curing projects, adphos has gained a great depth of knowledge and application expertise – ranging from drying aqueous ink onto thin films to drying inks onto heat reactive substrates and a drying on a big variety of paper-stocks. aNIR®’s speciality is primary energy absorption on the wet printed pattern and not on the substrate itself.
Benefits of aNIR®
adphos aNIR® enables instantaneous start/stop drying-technology and significant energy savings packed into extremely compact designs. The aNIR® drying, which essentially addresses only the printed areas and thus causes little heating of the substrates, dries the wet ink very efficiently in a fraction of a second resulting in a completely flat paper without dehydration or damage of the natural base substrate.
