JN Arora brings PrintabLED to India

PrintaLED Q is a low temperature and high performance UV curing solution, compatible with most of the printing machines. It is a compelling choice for demanding applications, where performance, reliability and flexibility are required.

JN Arora Group is one of the oldest groups of companies in the business of supplying printing consumables. Established more than 50 years ago by Late Sh. Joginder Nath Arora, the company has expanded their operations of marketing printing consumables both in terms of geographical coverage as well as the range of products. More recently, the company has brought PrintabLED Q to India, which is a low temperature and high performance UV curing solution.

PrintabLED Q

PrintabLED Q is used for for curing of inks and varnishes for industrial and graphics applications. The benefits of using this system are many:

Low temperature, higher speeds: A patented cooling system optimizes the heat extraction from the LED chip allowing it to reach the highest level of power irradiance in the industry, still working at record internal temperatures lower than 70oC. This makes PrintbLED Q ideal where heating of the substance can be an issue and guarantees an extremely long lifetime. The low temperature even at the power of 20W/cm2 dramatically reduces wastage and rejects with heat sensitive substrates. Speeds of up to 450 m/min – 18000 sheets/h are reached for reel and sheet based printing.

Compelling economics: The possibility to control the power of the UV array per sectors of the lamp always ensures the right energy levels, only where it is needed.

Environment-friendly: It is environment-friendly due to increased electrical efficiency.

Switch to UV LED made easy: The modular approach and the limited dimensions of 80 mm x 90 mm x L make PrintabLED Q the ideal choice for retrofits projects for most known UV LED applications.

Applications: PrintabLED Q system can be used for graphical printing (reel and sheet based flexo, offset, digital and screen printing), wood finishing (varnish, finishing), bottling (bottles, caps) and industrial (adhesives, coatings, etc.)

PrintabLED LP

PrintabLED started by developing and producing a high power product, PrintabLED Q, for curing of inks and varnishes for industrial and graphics applications. Now, the company has launched PrintabLED LP, a more cost competitive solution that provides UV LED’s benefits in fully industrialized device. PrintabLED LP can be utilized on its own by final curing. PrintabLED LP is a compact and versatile curing system that can be air-cooled or water-cooled according to the application.

ALTANA acquires Landa Metallography Technology

ALTANA has recently acquired Landa's Metallography technology. First unveiled by Landa at the Drupa printing exhibition in June, 2016, this novel technology for producing metallized graphics is a sustainable alternative to foil-transfer processes, enabling metallization graphics at up to half the cost of conventional foil stamping. Landa will progressively transfer the remaining development and engineering work to ALTANA’s ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants division, who will be bringing the Metallography technology to market in the coming years.

"We are excited about this acquisition, which opens up new growth opportunities for ALTANA and strengthens our position as a leading solution provider for the printing industry,” stated Martin Babilas, CEO, ALTANA. “We are looking forward to our continued close and trustful cooperation with Landa as we prepare to bring this promising technology to market”.

Dr. Roland Peter, president of the ALTANA division ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants, added, "Landa’s Metallography technology has the potential to become a sustainable mainstream technology for metallization graphics, supplanting foil-transfer in applications such as labels and folding cartons.” The novel Metallography technology is both economically attractive and environmentally sustainable, saving a significant amount of material, cost and production time compared to the conventional cold foil and hot foil stamping technology.

While, Benny Landa, chairman of the Landa Group said, “We are delighted that ALTANA has embraced our zero-waste Nano-Metallography technology, for there can be no better owner for this business than ALTANA. As an innovative partner of its customers ALTANA has a wealth of experience and know-how in graphic arts.”
