Flint Adds High-Intensity Lamps to Exposure Units

STUTTGART, GERMANY | Flint Group Flexographic Products reports that it is now equipping all main exposure units with high-power UV-A lamps of the latest generation. 

Company says the UV-A output of the high-definition lamps increases by up to 15% compared to standard UV-A 10R lamps, reportedly making them well suited for the reproduction of high-definition halftones and the finest images in flexo form processing. Longer life, and therefore reduced replacement cycles, makes them cost-efficient and user-friendly, adds company.

The new lamps have an initial UV-A intensity of more than 20 mW/cm2. This is said to allow user to fully exploit the potential of the latest generation of flexo plates, such as the nyloflex FTF, a flexo plate with inherently flat top dots and a textured plate surface. Due to improved crosslinking, even the finest vignettes with soft fade-outs reportedly can be easily reproduced.
