Unilux Strobe Light Has Versatile Features

SADDLE BROOK, NJ | Unilux, a finalist for the 2016 Label Industry Global Award for Innovation, announces the new LED-9 as its featured strobe light for surface and print quality inspection. “The applications for stroboscopic inspection are almost limitless,” says Tom Herold, VP sales–Americas. “New LED models incorporate a more ergonomic design and enhanced control of output that could only come from our years of experience with Xenon strobes and our extensive investment in product development.” 

Company says the new strobe light is designed for easier handheld use and has a greater range of adjustments to control light output. In addition to being more powerful, LED strobes can include UV diodes that enable security label printers and package printers to see special security codes or clear-coat adhesives that are only visible in the narrow UV light spectrum. The LED UV lights reportedly are ten times brighter than traditional Xenon UV strobes, which require a filter that blocks light output.

“The UV LEDs provide brighter light that lets inspectors see details in the UV portion even under ambient lighting conditions and without the need for special inspection stations,” says Unilux president Mike Simonis. “That’s something they couldn’t do before UV LEDs. At the same time, they can now inspect the entire width of the web across the entire light spectrum at full production speed and make corrections when needed to improve their yield.”

The LED-9 and strobe lights for UV-visible inks and coatings can be seen at Labelexpo Americas 2016, September 13–15, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL, Booth 1457, as part of the company’s expanding family of LED strobes for label and narrow web printing and converting applications.
