E2C HP

High powered variant of GEW’s E2C lamphead, designed for low migration and/or high-speed print applications.

E2C HP

E2C HP comprises a standard E2C UV lamp cassette housed in a larger casing to enable more air cooling and thus higher running power, up to 180W/cm. Perfect for low migration or high speed print applications up to 80cm wide, it boasts the same reliability and patented reflector designs contained in GEW’s most popular E2C product.

E2C HP still supports printing on the widest range of heat-sensitive materials because our actively air-cooled reflectors reduce heat transfer to the substrate. It also boasts GEW’s famous quick-change cassette design enabling a new lamp to be fitted in under 2 minutes with only 1 hex key tool required.

Reliability is guaranteed and when powered by GEW’s RHINO system, E2C HP can be purchased with a 5-year warranty, which means no unplanned maintenance costs well beyond the return on investment period.

E2C HP can be integrated and customised to fit a wide range of printing and coating machines. GEW’s experienced engineers will be happy to help understand your requirements further.
