The most popular air-cooled UV curing system in the world – over 25,000 units installed.


E2C is GEW’s most popular UV dryer with over 25,000 units installed worldwide. Fully air cooled, it delivers unparalleled curing performance up to 140W/cm due to patented ultra-efficient reflector designs. No similar product delivers more curing performance at this energy level.

Perfect for use on any machine up to 60cm in width, E2C 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 one hex key tool required.

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

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