The company will feature UV options for the inspection of UV-visible inks, coatings, and optical brighteners, as well as new ergonomic designs with enhanced controls.
Saddle Brook, NJ MARCH 30, 2017 - Unilux, the world's leading designer and manufacturer of strobe lights for inspection will demonstrate new LED strobes for the inspection of surface and print quality in booth 835. Visitors to the Unilux booth will be able to demo the new strobes and learn how these inspection tools can be put to use in their application.
One of the new additions to the Unilux product line is the LED-UV inspection strobes. Security converters and printers can use the new strobes to examine the quality of all types of security elements, including special security codes, adhesives and coatings, and optical brighteners that are only visible in the narrow UV light spectrum. Unilux recently received the 2017 Sapphire Specialty Design Award for these industry-first LED-UV strobes.
By using LEDs in place of a combined xenon light source and filter, Unilux eliminates the filter penalty. The penalty was the result of using the filter to remove visible wavelengths of light, thereby reducing the strobe light's overall efficiency. Using UV LEDs increases the amount of power used to generate light in the UV spectrum thereby making these strobes both more powerful and more efficient than their xenon strobe counterparts.
