HIGHTEX-INNOPRINT Report Summary

Project ID: G1RD-CT-2000-00437
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Germany

Online-UV-curing unit for use in inkjet printing and in textile applications

Parameters referring to lamp spectrum and output, geometry of reflector and UV dose were evaluated and fixed. The setup of parameters was also performed on the basis of curing tests in laboratory, which provided the input for manufacturing of the curing unit. An online-curing unit was manufactured as an open system for incorporation of further radiators if necessary. This also includes the use of inert gas as well as high flexibility referring to the use of focused or not focused UV-light radiators (exchangeable). The UV-scanning device was adopted to customers demands. A prototype was designed and manufactured.
