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.
