Light supports the printing of the future

 

The demand for higher speeds, quality and value in printing markets has been increasing in recent years. We have come face to face with numerous challenges with our customer and aim to solve them with the know-how we've accumulated in that time. Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a "Complete Proposal for Innovative Printing", using our optical technologies to make a range of solutions for a variety of printing applications.

UV printing

This is a printing method that is employed to instantaneously dry UV inks by irradiating them with UV radiation. Printing is possible on a broad range of material, including paper, film or timber.
Our UV-LED Light sources are designed to accommodate a diverse range of printing machines by offering a variety of shapes and performance for use in applications such as inkjet, flexographic and more. The ability to make light sources unique to our customers' needs contributes to greater performance and customer satisfaction, as well as differentiating themselves from the market.

LC-L5G

Surface modification / Matting

This is a technology that enhances or changes the characteristics of materials by altering the compositions and structures of surface materials.
Excimer light sources can be used for applications such as matting, which is achieved by surface modification. To do this, an excimer light source is added after the varnish application process (but before the varnish curing process). In printing, this vacuum irradiation process achieves a matted texture on a target which would ordinarily be glossy.
 

Excimer

Electrostatic countermeasure

The importance of electrostatic countermeasures has been increasing in recent years, as static electricity generated by friction in the printing process has been causing deterioration of printing efficiency and quality.
When printing, static electricity can cause issues such as an uneven finish when spraying, attachment of unwanted particles and misalignment of papers. The Photolonizer achieves complete electrostatic elimination in the printing process, which helps reduce defect rates and improve quality in the printing process.
 

PI

Light level control

Hamamatsu's highly precise power meters allow the control of light levels of UV-LED light sources and Excimer light sources. Our propriety solid state device produces highly reproducible measurements, and inhibits sensitivity deterioration for UV wavelengths.
Power meters can be used to control the light output of sources in order to digitize and vary the degree of surface modification on a material, which has traditionally been performed manually by checking the dryness of the ink.
 

Power-meter

3D printer

Spot light sources can be used for curing within 3D printers that use the material jetting and photo fabrication methods. These printers are utilized in a variety of situation due to their ability to deliver details and esthetics.
With the compact LED head point curing of UV resins and adhesives is possible. Its' compact size and air cooling method means it can be considered for installation in a range of applications, such as 3D printers.

UV-LED light source (Linear irradiation)

Hamamatsu now offers LED-UV light sources (LC-L5G series) that are compact, lightweight and air-cooled, yet deliver the high power that has been a challenge for LED-UV light sources. These LED-UV light sources are available for various printers including inkjet printers.

RF electric discharge type excimer lamp

Excimer light sources can be used for applications such as matting, which is achieved by surface modification. To do this, an excimer light source is added after the varnish application process (but before the varnish curing process).
