GEW to launch power saving e-Brick in Australia

March 2007. Visitors to the PrintEx07 in Sydney will have the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in power saving UV curing from GEW on stand 1101 where the new e-Brick power supply and a working model of its VCP UV lamp head will be exhibited. The two combine to form one system in the GEW e-System family of UV curing solutions.

Comments Marcus Greenbrook, Sales & Service Manager, Australasia; “With energy costs continuing to rise, GEW has developed its new e-System with the e-Brick electronic power supply to provide a measured reduction of up to 30% in energy costs while giving equivalent curing capability when compared to traditional ballast based power supplies. GEW has actually produced a calculator cost model where Printers can enter the make and parameters of their particular press and obtain the exact savings they would gain by installing e-brick”.
