bfs are proud to be sponsoring the BCF Print Forum on the 2nd October in Edinburgh and 9th October in Sutton Coldfield
Throwing light on UV LED.
“Everything the printer needs to know about UV LED curing.”
When converting to UV LED it is vitally important to ensure your press is fit for purpose, which includes having the correctly specified rollers. Mike Craven, Technical Sales Manager will join Graham Punchard, Director of Rollers at bfs to explain the different rubber compounds used in press rollers, and what impact switching to UV inks has on them. They will also talk through the dos and don’ts of roller care, and finally give a general idea of the process, lead times and typical costs of recovering rollers to get them ready to accept UV LED inks.
UV LED curing technology first appeared in the print sector more than 10 years ago, but now it’s taking the printing world by storm and the pace of its adoption by all print applications is accelerating. Digital, flexographic and litho printers are all now familiar with UV LED, and every industry event seems to have an increasingly stronger emphasis on it than ever before.
The BCF, along with an impressive array of its own ink and coatings members plus a specially selected group of equipment manufacturers and other print consumables suppliers, offers a forum to present delegates an insight into the entire UV LED story – compelling and competitive reasons to consider UV LED systems, and the chance to speak, one-to-one, with the industry experts who can lead you through the technology and help you decide if it’s right for you. Delegates will come away from this one-day event with a complete understanding of what UV LED is and what it can offer them. The event is taking place on two dates, in separate locations – 2nd October, Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club, Edinburgh Scotland and 9th October, Moor Hall, Sutton Coldfield West Midlands.
