With NIR® inkjet drying systems you are assured greater productivity and throughput on even the most demanding of water based inkjet applications including those on high gloss, over coated and temperature sensitive substrates.NIR® inkjet drying systems deliver the energy you need, where you need it by utilizing near-infrared technology which focuses the energy on the ink and not on the substrate resulting in less curl and easier to run and handle substrates. Additionally NIR® drying systems minimize air flow which reduces downtime through improved paper handling. Greater productivity is also achieved with tool-less module positioning and lamp replacement.
New Technology Provides Superior Adhesion of HP Inks to Coated Stocks and Plastic Cards!
What is Next Generation NIR Technology?
The shorter wavelength of Near-Infrared light is closer to the visible spectrum
HP-based inks more readily absorb the NIR wavelength – causing a quicker drying time
Stray radiant energy is minimized – because a greater percentage of energy is aborbed into the ink. This results in greater efficiency!
Adphos new lower cost M-Series dryers
Adphos M-Series dryers are compact, high-performance, and programmable drying solutions for water-based continuous and drop-on-demand inkjet systems. The M-series product line utilizes patented adphosNIR® technology and offers more options, higher productivity, and easier integration while offering a return on your investment in as little as three months. The M-series product line contains three models ranging from the lower powered M1, for mailbases, binding lines, and other sheet-fed converting equipment to the high powered M4 which is ideal for ultra high speed web-fed applications.
Extended Capabilities of HP-Based Inks
Inks such as FlexPrint AqueousTM contain trace amounts of chemical binders that adhere to Aqueous coated materials and PVC laminates. To be effective, the water contained in the ink must be evaporated – and the heating process accelerates the binding process.
Other inks such as HP’s Versatile Black are excellent for clay coated stocks. The S-800 accelerates the drying and absorption process for this ink
With these inks and S-800 drying technology, it is possible to print on some materials that only solvent-based systems such as Videojet and Domino could previously handle.
Measurable Benefits of the S-800
Dramatic increase of production speeds when printing on stocks that are typically “slowed down” in order to dry
Increased revenue – from increased speeds.
Speed-Following control to adjust the S-800 power to the speed of the transport
