aNIR-enables zero carbon coil coating operation

Today´s coil coating lines emit large amount of CO2 (up to 20,000 t/a per line), resulting from the installed gas fired ovens for drying and curing of chemcoatings, primers and finish coatings. adphos company own developed propriety aNIR-technology now enables the drying and curing offered standard coatings (chemcoatings, organic primers and finish coating), completely CO2 free due to its intrinsic electro-thermal working principle.

Thanks to the unique working principle of the aNIR-technology:

  • • instantaneous drying and curing within 2 – 4 s,
  • • adjustable power depending on coating

aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing – A game changer in battery cell production

adphos Thermal Processing GmbH (ATP), a specialist in drying and surface processing, has developed a new drying solution for anode and cathode water based and solvent based coatings.

The “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing” allows a complete electrode coating drying, ten times faster and with only a fraction of drying power, down to 10 % of the present standard convection based drying solutions. Based on the company own development advanced NIR (aNIR)-platform technology, with the propriety “aNIR-Battery Electrode Processing”, an electrode coating up to 150 µm thickness can be dried

adphos aNIR dryers now proven to increase productivity of HP T-Series presses

Upgrade kits for T200, T300, and T400 series inkjet presses enable printers to increase their printing speeds by up to 60% and finishing speeds by up to 100%

Dozens of HP T-presses of 20-, 30- and 40-inch printing width have been installed in the past decade. Many of these have been upgraded with adphos dryers for increased productivity. adphos was approached by numerous HP T-press users and asked whether an aNIR dryer could increase the drying capabilities, running speeds and ROI of their inkjet presses. Adphos developed a series of solutions and successfully installed them on all width variations.

1.000,000 t / year CO2 reductions with aNIR

In 2019, the installed aNIR production facilities led to a reduction in CO2 emissions – from otherwise fossil-fired dryers and ovens – of 1,000,000 t/year.

The advanced NIR (aNIR) technology is a thermo-electrical technology developed by adphos for heating, drying and curing.
The combination of high-energy NIR power emission and warm impingement air flow results in a quasi-spontaneous evaporation of the water or solvents on the wet print, paints and functional coatings. Due to its innovative design the aNIR drying systems can dynamically be adapted to the widths, quantities

Digital OverPrintVarnish and white inkjet-ink demonstration at InPrint

At iNPRINT Munich from November 12th to 14th, 2019 a consortium of four companies; ACTEGA, adphos, ideeGO & Seiko Instruments demonstrates the possibilities of water-based inks and varnishes.

Water-based inkjetable OPV makes set-up cost obsolete!

On the booth 730 of the Japanese printhead-manufacturer Seiko Instruments a water-based overprint varnish by ACTEGA will be ink-jetted with Seiko’s printhead RC1536-L onto a pre-printed paper-roll to demonstrate the versatility of a transparent fluid-application. The liquid will be applied in a 30 micron (wet) thick layer on a roll

Broadening the range of applications for water-based inks!

As inkjet printing progresses, becoming faster and more reliable, regulatory questions like food-contact (Swiss Ordinance, etc.) and health and safety in décor applications (RAL for wallpaper, etc.) play an increasingly important role. This is where UV-curable inks often reach their limits, as their composition of reactive chemistry is often not compliant with health and safety requirements.

Water-based inks can solve this challenge, with a similar application process as UV-curable inks, but without the non-compliant materials. Water-based inks are comprised of binders, dyes

Adphos Goes Upside Down – First Inkjet, Now Rotogravure

Digitalisation is a subject that has now reached most industries. In print, the digital route has started in the eighties – with the introduction of laser- and inkjet printers in the office. Forty years later, inkjet print has reached the industry and speeds of 300 m / min are no longer impossible.

aNIR by adphos is used in inkjet print since 1997. Back then, Scitex, now part of Kodak, used aNIR to dry water-based inks on thermo-sensitive paper. Since then, adphos drying-concepts are used, when water needs to be evaporated – the faster the printer, the more ink is jetted, the more effective is adphos
