At DRUPA 2016, enhanced drying required by many, typically high productivity, digital, conventional printing and coating machines have been introduced. But almost all showed capacity, performance or quality limits due to their installed dryer solutions – that is those not already using adphosNIR®-drying technology.
adphos has been contacted to upgrade, enhance or even retrofit in place of these existing driers, whether:
For speed in sheet and continuous web processing,
For a wider range of substrates, especially commercial offset or coated glossy stocks,
aLITE®-Technology, advanced Light Initiated Thermal Emission from adphos (in short adphosLITE®), will be launched at drupa 2016 in Düsseldorf.
aLITE is based on an area-focussed, high intensity energy source, to allow instantaneous thermal processing. Thus water based or solvent based coatings can be instantly dried or even cured, which is a mandatory requirement to overcome the present application barriers to coating applications in “direct to shape printing”. Today these applications are typically performed by integration of label-printed solutions into the industrial production
At drupa 2016, adphos Group will highlight applications of high speed drying, curing and thermal processing enabled by its adphosNIR technology.
Drying of inkjet inks for direct mail at 914 m/min (3,000 fpm)
Sintering of conductive inks for printed electronics at 152 m/min (500 fpm)
Drying of water based adhesives for packaging at 305 m/min (1,000 fpm)
