Transcript of UV LED Ink Curing Technology

UV LED Ink Curing Technology
Presented by John Freismuth
-President
LED Ink Curing Technology
Sustainable Technology that is both Environmentally Friendly & Economically Sound.
Manufacturing
with LED
• No Ventilation Systems are needed, drastically reducing energy consumption.

• Safer work environment, cleaner air quality

• Smaller Footprint, opens up manufacturing space

• Fewer Rejects, due to ink curing issues

• Rubber Belts - No Dirt, Doesn't Conduct electricity

• Minimal Heat, less material distortion, eliminates the risk of fires

• Longer Bulb life

• Reduced Downtime for Maintenance

• Ability to do Lean/One piece flow
Cure Rate
8 Watt LED:
380 - 410 Nanometers
Produces UVA rays
95% Light
5% Heat

Mercury Vapor Bulbs
280 - 410 Nanometers
UVA, UVB, Heat
95% Heat
5% Light
The Future of Screen Printing
• Nazdar Inks and Coatings
• Kammann USA
• Phoseon Technology
Total Cost of the Machine: $290,890.00
(Includes Materials, 14.7" 8 Watt LEDs)


Power Consumption
• Average AMPs: 5.8
• Voltage: 208 3 Phase (2.09 kW-h)
• Total kW per YR: 10447 ($.10 per kW-h)


No Exhaust



Total Cost of the Machine: $290,890.00
(Includes Materials, Bulbs)

Cost per Mercury Bulb:
• Uses 6 bulbs
• 30 Replacement bulbs per year: ($162.00 each = $4,860.00)

Power Consumption
• Average AMPs: 56
• Voltage: 480 Volts 3 Phase (46.6 kW-h)
• kW per YR: 232780 kW ($.10 per kW-h)
• Total Power Consumption: $23,278.00

Exhaust
• 5000 CFMs (38 kW-h) (Air Handler?)
• kW per YR: 190,000 kW ($.10 per kW-h)
• Total Exhaust per YR: $19,000.00

Lean Manufacturing
and the Research and Development
of UV LED Curing Technology began.

2011
• Empire
Today we have 4 production lines that utilize UV LED Curing Technology
What are the Benefits of LED Curing
vs. Traditional UV Curing
Why LED?
• Plugs into a standard
120 watt outlet
- Traditional uses 240 - 440 watts
UV LED Curing
• No Ozone Emissions
- Mercury Curing Produces
Ozone that needs to be
vented from the building
• Minimal Heat
- Mercury Produces Heat

• No CFMs (No Ventilation System)
- Extensive Ventilation
System
• Instant ON/OFF
- Constantly ON, needs Time to Warm Up and
Cool Down
• Smaller Footprint
- Larger Footprint
• Lower Operating Cost
– High Energy Cost
• Bulb Life: 10 - 14 yrs.
- Bulb Life: 1000 hrs.
• Consistent Cure Rate
- Variable Cure Rate
• Environmentally Friendly
- Special Disposal of Mercury Bulbs

Energy Use
per Year

$1044.70
Energy Use per Year

$47,138.00
After 5 Years:
Cost for Machine: $296,113.50
After 5 Years:
Cost of Machine: $526,580.00
Any Questions?
Thank You!
• Less Downtime: Preventative Maintenance (1 hr. per month)
- 6 hrs. per month
Based on 5000 hrs of Run Time per Year
