IST to showcase energy efficient UV system at Labelexpo Asia 2011

IST (stand E18) is presenting a special UV curing system for the narrow web market: The MBS-5. A quantum jump in UV printing because of the most economical use of energy in the UV curing process!

Energy costs represent a considerable part of the production costs associated with label printing. As worldwide energy consumption, and therefore energy costs, continue to increase, it is necessary to develop intelligent solutions to curb excessive rises in production costs or, better still, to reduce them. Developments in reflector geometry and integrated URS technology mean that the MBS-5 can produce curing results using low power UV lamps, which could previously only be achieved with higher powered UV systems. The energy saved has a direct impact on the energy bill.

The MBS-5 System has been designed to reduce press downtime to a minimum for high efficiency UV technology for label printing. The user-friendly design and easy access to parts mean that all service work, whether to change lamps or clean the unit, can be carried out quickly - therefore saving time and money. The totally new design of the MBS-5 UV system is based on the latest innovations in UV technology. These include URS reflectors, ELC electronic power supply units and FLC fast change lamps, which all lead to a notable reduction in operating costs and therefore more cost effective production for a comparatively low investment. It goes without saying that there have been no compromises in quality or productivity.
