Phoseon Technology launches FireJet FJ605 air-cooled flexographic solution

Phoseon’s new FireJet FJ605 UV LED air-cooled curing lamp.

Phoseon Technology (Hillsboro, Oregon) has unveiled its FireJet FJ605 UV LED self-contained, air-cooled curing lamp for flexographic applications that enables press speeds up to 1,000 fpm. The FJ605 introduces a “market-leading” air-cooled irradiance level up to 20W/cm2 with a three-year standard warranty (some conditions apply). The new lamp delivers total UV output power performance for superior dose delivery, along with an advanced control interface. It’s available in lamp lengths that cover the gamut of narrow and mid-web presses. The FJ605 was designed for press manufacturers and converters looking for market-leading performance and digital control, said the company. It’s ideal for applications that require up to 1,000 fpm (300m/min.) in print widths of 600 mm or 675 mm. It also features advanced digital interface capabilities for tight process control – such as low-migration processes for food packaging. The FJ605 is scheduled to be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.

“The FJ605 has several advantages over its competitors in the market,” said Sara Jennings, Phoseon’s Senior Technical Marketing Engineer. “For example, it’s a high-performance, self-contained, air-cooled solution that doesn’t require exhaust blowers or water chillers. It uses less system power when compared with traditional mercury and water-cooled offerings – thus saving converters energy expenses, while still operating on presses at high speeds.” Phoseon went on to say that the FJ605 is compact enough to retrofit existing installed presses, giving converters the opportunity to attract more business immediately. In addition, the FJ605 supports the following technology enhancements:

  • TargetSure Technology – a patent-pending technology that monitors UV irradiance in real-time
  • WhisperCure Technology – that delivers leading-edge air-cooled performance at reduced decibel levels creating a quieter and safer environment for operators
  • TargetCure Technology – that delivers fast performance uniformity with -instant on-and-off capabilities of LED and reliability of performance over the life of the lamp

Since 2002, Phoseon Technology has pioneered the use of LED technology for Life Sciences and Industrial Curing, delivering high-performance, reliable and patented LED-based solutions to the worldwide market. Phoseon is an ISO9001 certified company solely focused on LED technology.
