UV and LED solutions for printing labels

IST METZ will be presenting the MBS range with its standard Hot Swap functionality at Labelexpo Europe, Hall 5, Stand D21, Brussels, September 25-28, 2017. In addition, the UV system manufacturer is presenting a ‘Buy One, Try One’ concept for the first time, enabling customers to test the new high-performance LED system for free.

LED technology is becoming more and more popular. However, UV lamps are still required. IST METZ’s Hot Swap concept enables users to switch between tried and tested UV lamp technology and new LED technology, at any time during the production process. During the switchover the outer housing remains in place on the machine. The LAMPcure unit is exchanged for an LEDcure system designed in the form of a cassette, contact to the supply connections is then created automatically by the insertion process. The entire exchange is completed without tools and within a very short space of time.

Try out LEDcure for free

During a free test phase, companies are able to establish whether upgrading a production process to the new LED technology is worthwhile. Additionally under the ‘Buy One, Try One’ concept, IST METZ is providing customers with the option to try out the MBS LEDcure LED solution for free, for one month, when purchasing a MBS LAMPcure.

100 per cent LED solution for printing labels

Codimag will also be demonstrating their press, fully equipped with LED technology, at Labelexpo (Hall 11, Stand C10). The machine, a VIVA 340 Evolution is designed for narrow-web label printing and is equipped with full LED features created by IST METZ. This is IST METZ’s latest generation of MBS LEDcure-series air-cooled high-performance LEDs.

The Viva Aniflo has the typical output of a conventional printing process, but also the flexibility of digital printing. This characteristic is further enhanced by the use of MBS LEDcure.
