Adphos Digital Printing GmbH
adphosNIR® is one of the fastest growing thermal processing technologies for ink jet printing and coatings application technologies particularly for water based applications. Adphos have pioneered the technology and enhanced its output to provide a very high power density into the ink or coating film leaving the paper and plastic substrate largely unaffected by this energy. The high power density found at this particular wave length drives out the water (or solvent) and if necessary also sintered or cured very rapidly ensuring that the print or coating is dry within a very small foot print. This ensures that production machinery can include an efficient drying as well as thermal process system without taking excessive amounts of machinery or shop floor space.
