UV-LED curing technology from Agfa Graphics offer printers improved lamp life and stability. UV LED inks also provide fast drying on a wide variety of materials and a very wide colour gamut. The LEDs generate less heat, offering an increase in media choices – and because they turn on and shut down immediately, there’s no time wasted waiting for lamps to cool down or warm up, this expediting the printing process. For attendees looking to expand their business, the Agfa Graphics booth will also feature the Esko Kongsberg X24 cutting table finishing a variety of Duratex media. The Duratex brand serves UV, latex and solvent markets “providing quality products at competitive price points.”
