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.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
