Your application – your modulux
Equip your web press with a highly productive LED system
You can equip nearly every web press with a high performance modulux curing system, whether it is a narrow or mid-web process. Due to the modular design (also with optional components), the modulux unit will suit your every need.
Narrow web printing
- Seamless LED integration after each station
- Various labelling substrates are possible: from paper to shrink sleeves to unsupported films to metallic foil or even heat-sensitive materials like synthetics
- High speed up to 200 m/min (650 ft/min)
Easy and low-cost integration
Purchase just the modulux LED components that you need for a tailored press integration. This saves you money on unnecessary accessories, services or components that you actually don't need.
Fit and forget
Be surprised by an excellent lifetime
Technical features such as, heat management, packing technology and the use of tailored driving technology ensure that the lifetime of modulux LED units exceeds. Unlike UV lamp technology, modulux LEDs can be switched on/off immediately which increases the lifetime and reduces energy costs in stand-by mode. modulux LED curing units offer superior uniformity and a more reliable production process in contrast to UV lamps.
High quality with a reasonable price

- effective curing
- low heat input
- brilliant results
Smart Heat Management
with pure water-cooling
In general, LEDs generate a high heat load during operation, which is the main cause of lifetime reduction. That's why an excellent heat management design is so important to reduce the working temperature of the chips as far as possible.
Aligning the LEDs directly on the circuit boards, is still the best packing method, which will minimize the heat transfer. By adopting very high thermal conductivity materials in conjunction with water cooling, stable and precise output can be provided by the ideal working temperature of the chips, within 15–25 °C, that leads to a LED lifetime over 25,000 hours.
The optics are made of lenses that are specially designed for labelling and allow a high UV output on the substrate. The core optical design scheme with a uniform continuous spot strip can effectively increase the peak intensity of the spectrum to 120–200 % of the 390 nm band of the mercury lamp.
