AMS Spectral UV, a Baldwin Technology company and North America’s manufacturer of UV and LED-UV curing solutions, will showcase its latest industrial curing lineup at RadTech at Stand 95, which is taking place 9-12 May in Orlando, Florida.

Taking center stage, the patented XP Quatro Series LED-UV curing module is the company’s latest evolution for high-speed, high-performance LED-UV curing of inks, coatings and adhesives. Manufactured in the US, and built using quality materials and LED architecture, the XP Quatro Series is designed to withstand nonstop use in tough conditions and high-productivity environments that require a rugged, resilient curing module.

With two large LED-UV arrays, the XP Quatro series delivers double the available power of a standard LED solution at a lower cost than two individual lamps, while operating at top industrial speeds—and driving increased productivity and profitability. Unique to the XP Quatro Series is its ability to emit two different wavelengths from the same head, so with deep, layered substrates, the longer wavelengths can penetrate further, and in applications that require simultaneous powerful surface curing, the shorter waves can achieve this at the same time. Additionally, in applications with dual chemistry on one substrate, both can be perfectly cured simultaneously.

“When producers are ready to make use of the highest LED-UV doses to scale up their manufacturing lines and increase them to the highest speeds, we should be the first company they call,” said Jonathan Fore, commercial lead for Baldwin’s AMS Spectral UV. “Our new XP Quatro is like putting curing afterburners on your production line.”

AMS Spectral UV an all-LED curing solution for high-performance printing and converting, and is a world leader in the market, with an installed base of more, LED systems on offset litho and flexo presses globally than any other provider. This Baldwin has quickly risen to prominence among the world’s leading industrial curing equipment manufacturers, with applications ranging from electronics and medical devices to EV automotive and consumer goods.

By focusing on everything from research and development to engineering and production, the team of experts at Baldwin’s AMS Spectral UV can customize solutions to suit every application. The company’s comprehensive products and services include conventional UV, LED-UV, UV lamps, infrared, test-lab facilities and application engineering services. To further support the industrial manufacturing sector, Baldwin’s AMS Spectral UV bolstered its sales team with two new hires in North America for outside sales and sales engineering to mirror its team already dedicated to the industrial market segment in Europe.

“We’ve been a power player in curing for the print industry for a generation,” said Fore. “And, with our investments in the most powerful new products, and with our new team members, we are committed to growing in the industrial space. We may be the biggest and best UV and LED-UV company many manufacturers have never considered. We’re showing at RadTech to change that.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
