We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Award for Innovation in the 2020 Label Industry Global Awards, for our LeoLED UV curing system. The usual awards ceremony will not be possible this year due to the coronavirus situation, but there will be a special video announcement to reveal all the winners, on September 15th.
Launched in 2019, GEW’s LeoLED is a next-generation LED UV curing system that has had a significant impact in this highly competitive market. The technology has been redesigned and refined for simplicity and offers excellent value, while at the same time delivering maximum power and dose of UV energy.
Robert Rae, Managing Director, Sales at GEW, explains: “Essentially, LED UV curing has been seen as an expensive option. The initial cost of an LED system, combined with the higher cost of LED inks and coatings, has created a barrier to adoption by the industry. But with LeoLED, GEW has fundamentally changed the economics of LED, by offering printers an LED option at almost half the cost of its earlier models.”
“Furthermore, LeoLED delivers a 35% higher dose, and 40% higher intensity at over 30W/cm2. It operates on GEW’s ArcLED hybrid platform and uses the same power supply as mercury arc systems, making an upgrade to LED an affordable reality.”
