New UVX Stroboscopic Inspection Improves Quality Control for Security Printing and Packaging

Improvements expand coverage area to make inspection more efficient.

Saddle Brook, NJ October 6, 2020 Unilux, the world leader in the design and manufacture of stroboscopic inspection lighting, announces a new line of portable UV inspection strobes. New UVX models improve efficiency by illuminating a larger area of UV-visible inks and optical brighteners so that defects can be seen at full production speed, anywhere on the press.

New UVX inspection strobes excite UV-visible inks and optical brighteners over a wider area, making it easy to spot issues across the entire web at once. Quality is confirmed without slowing production and the cause of defects can be corrected before a print run is ruined. By spreading the usable illumination more evenly, UVX strobes provide a truer representation of quality by eliminating hot spots.

“UV LED technology has improved since our award-winning LEDUV inspection strobes,” said Mike Simonis, President, Unilux. “With UVX, we’ve leveraged those improvements using experience that only comes from decades of problem solving in security printing, cold seal, and coating to meet customers evolving requirements.”

Portable LED9 and LED12 UVX strobes provide the ability to inspect anywhere on the press and feature quick-change batteries for added convenience. Stationary LED2000 UV inspection systems provide full-width inspection and feature Smart Assist controls, which make it easier to daisy-chain multiple units for the simultaneous inspection of standard and UV-visible inks and coatings.
