UV LED Curing Technologies are Poised for Growth
LED curing is one of the most intriguing areas in energy curing. In 2008, LED curable technologies debuted at drupa, with plenty of press and ink manufacturers showcasing the technology. LED curable technologies have made inroads in the inkjet field, with Sun Chemical and INX Digital among the most notable ink companies working in the field.
Tom Molamphy, vice president of sales and marketing for Phoseon Technology, said that drupa 2008 was the first major event where people started to take notice of UV LED technology, most notably in inkjet applications, where the technology has had its strongest success.
