Phoeson says the donation is to support the future generation of professionals in flexographic printing applications to have hands-on experience with UV LED curing, learning all the benefits and capabilities enabled with UV LED.

The University received FireJet FJ605 light sources with Flex Tower and mounting brackets, which are installed in industry partners, OMET’s Varyflex narrow-web press.

The light source features Phoseon’s patented TargetCure and WhisperCure technologies providing users with stable and precise UV output.

The press will be used for hands-on training in the university’s Advanced Print Lab and will be showcased at an upcoming event ‘The Future of Flexo: New Year, New Technology’ presented by OMET.

This will open up a whole new area for industry partnerships

Keate Despain, vice president of marketing for Phoseon says: “We are excited to be able to offer this new capability in line with existing print testing services. This will open up a whole new area for industry partnerships. With this collaboration, we are empowering and supporting the future of flexographic and other printing applications designers.

“Phoseon is proud to be working with students and customers in their development of innovative and game changing capabilities that is not only good for a company’s bottom line but is also good for the environment.

“This new Center of Excellence for UV LED curing at the Sonoco Institute enables Phoseon and partners to demonstrate UV LED curing capabilities to those interested in converting from traditional mercury lamps.”
