UV application laboratory
GEW’s application laboratory is designed to enable accurate testing of an extensive range of UV applications and to advise correct specification of GEW products. It is equipped with conveyor units, print proofing equipment, a vast array of scientific measurement equipment and a comprehensive range of GEW products and accessories. GEW engineers will design and run custom tests independently or in the presence of customers to ensure the UV application is successful upon installation.
For complex or challenging applications, experienced GEW engineers will visit a customer’s site anywhere in the world to assess all aspects of UV integration. Often a laser scanner is utilised to build a 3D model of the machine and a detailed assessment of installation requirements and siting takes place. Detailed site layouts and specification documents are provided for customer approval and comprehensive build instructions produced for GEW’s field service team. All designs are rigorously compliant to all relevant local regulations.
GEW’s highly experienced Service team will contact you before an installation to guide you through the process of installation and commissioning. Detailed pre-installation check sheets are provided with customised instructions and surveys relevant to your project. Our technical team are available to advise on any queries you have to ensure the installation process is quick and efficient.
Installation & commissioning
GEW is pleased to provide a worldwide installation and commissioning service. Our experienced engineer or service partner will visit your site to integrate the new UV system on your machinery. Following this, a detailed test procedure will ensure all components are working within tolerance and a “commissioning code” will be provided to activate your system warranty.
During installation or by separate appointment, experienced GEW engineers can visit your site to provide customised UV system training. This includes operation of GEW controls and equipment, basic maintenance of UV lampheads and advice on optimum setup for your process.
GEW Rhino & RLT systems can be protected with up to a 5 year warranty covering all parts and labour – unmatched in the industry. Immediately following installation, it is possible to instantly upgrade the warranty support on your GEW system direct with our service team. Please contact us for more information and pricing.
During service life:
A highly experienced team of on-site service technicians and local service partners are available globally to support your UV system on-site whenever a problem arises. Wherever you are, GEW provides a rapid, professional response backed up by our state of the art, Industry 4.0 remote monitoring system.
UV health check
The GEW system health check is a comprehensive, on-site inspection of your UV system. An engineer will leave your system running to its current potential and will recommend actions and parts required to bring the performance and reliability up to the highest level possible.
UV output study
Using state of the art dose measurement equipment, a GEW engineer will assess the UV output of your GEW system and advise the current status compared to the original output when new. You will be given advice on parts and maintenance procedures required to optimise the performance of your UV cassettes. Find out more about our cassette upgrade packages below:
