New W&H chamber end seals for increased durability!!

 

Advanced Supplies recently announced the launch of a new range of W&H doctor blade chamber end seals developed to address a problem that many flexo printers deal with every day; leaking ink. Ink leakage and the mess that it creates is one of the biggest causes of press downtime, not to mention the cost in waste ink that cannot be recovered.

The new end seals feature a patented, bonded Telfon strip designed to protect the seal radius (the most critical part of any end seal) and reduce the wear caused by anilox rotation, thereby greatly increasing the time between seal changes. In addition, the enhanced seals allow for much higher press speeds of up to 1000mpm.

 

W&H chamber end seal advantages:

  • For solvent and water-based inks
  • Extremely durablePTFE seals_cropped
  • Highly abrasion resistant
  • Patented design
  • Cushioned EVA backing layer to stop leakage
  • Reduce costs
  • Approved for use up to 1000mpm
  • Water jet cut for precise dimensional accuracy

Don’t take our word for it. Drop us a line with details of your press and we’ll immediately dispatch a sample set of seals.

The new end seals are now available for W&H Miraflex, Novoflex and Primaflex presses and can also be custom designed for most other commonly used flexo presses.

Unilux Inc (stand 4C68) will introduce six new LED and LED-UV strobe lights at Labelexpo Europe 2015. The new models complete a full offering of LED-based stroboscopes that combine brighter output, more efficient operation and reduced maintenance. This LED technology replaces xenon-based lights that have been the foundation of inspection solution strategies for decades.

 

Unilux will be introducing three new sizes of its highly versatile handheld H2L Series LED strobe: the LED-9, LED-27, and LED-36. These allow label printers and converters to clearly view printing and slitting quality anywhere on the press. The new sizes are in addition to models introduced by Unilux earlier this year, the LED-1, LED-3 and LED-12, further expanding the range of coverage available in the H2L Series of handheld LED strobes.

This new generation of LED strobe lights provides brighter illumination than the xenon-based technology, as well as lower cost of ownership by using only 35 percent of the power and eliminating lamp replacement and downtime caused by lamp burnout. The expected lifetime of the LEDs is 8 years plus, rather than 6 months for xenon-based units. LED designs also operate at cooler temperatures and emit no ozone gas.

Unilux will also be showcasing its UV line of strobes, the only source for LED UV inspection lighting. By using LED diodes instead of UV filters which go over the lenses of xenon-based strobes, Unilux is able to make the lights 10 times brighter than comparable xenon lamps, eliminating the need to build special inspection stations where ambient light is a factor. The combination of brighter light and greater choice of sizes, including battery-powered portability, lets printers inspect product wherever it’s most efficient for their operations.

Also on display at the Unilux Labelexpo 2015 booth will be three sizes of its fixed-mount LED2000 for real-time surface inspection across the entire width of the web.
