E2C Low Energy UV Curing System for Label and Narrow Web Presses

GEW’s E2C is the most powerful low energy UV curing system for narrow web presses.

The E2C UV curing system with RHINO electronic power supply takes curing of inks and coatings to new levels of productivity and print run security. The E2C-RHINO systems use substantially less energy. They enable colour process printing at full production speed with as little power as 90 W/cm (230W/inch).

E2C UV curing systems are safe for the widest range of heat-sensitive materials with no heat transfer to the machine or substrate at stand-by through the use of actively air cooled shutter technology.

E2C systems are available with inert atmosphere curing. They can easily be upgraded to LED curing by using the same RHINO ArcLED electronic power supply.

Where alternative products exploit conventional curing technologies that often neglect energy monitoring, GEW state of the art UV systems implement advanced UV lamphead technology associated with the most energy efficient power supplies. E2C RHINO systems come with the additional benefit of a comprehensive 5-year warranty unique in its industry.



Control

Energy performance measurement

The RHINO control automatically logs energy use and displays it on screen at the touch of a button, showing kWh consumption in operation, at idle and % production uptime.

Proactive downtime avoidance

Our Embedded Service Package regularly sends system performance data to GEW for analysis. A system health report is generated, highlighting any out-of-tolerance parameters requiring maintenance attention before a fault can develop.

Working at peak performance

The Event Log continually records system use and operating parameters. The Log can be checked to ensure the system is working at peak efficiency, avoiding energy waste and unplanned downtime.

Instant help

Multilingual instructions are easily accessible on every screen together with a library of tutorials and videos, troubleshooting and maintaining the system.


Electronic Power Supply

Fail-safe operation

Military-grade electronic design protects the UV system from damage caused by incorrect voltage, short-to-ground, dropped phases, mains spikes and lightning strikes. In the event of a serious mains disruption, the system powers down in a safe mode.

Survives the harshest environments

RHINO is designed to run in harsh conditions at ambient temperatures of up to 40°C. The system is also unaffected by dust, ink mist and other atmospheric contaminants.

Minimal footprint RHINO Rack

A compact cabinet that houses up to 6 RHINO power supplies and provides perfect cooling, atmospheric protection and mains power distribution. Cabinets are stackable 2-high, enabling 12 power supplies to fit into a 115 x 65cm floor area. Power supplies slide into rack and connect quickly, enabling more lamps to be easily added to the system in future.

Lowest operating costs

With intelligent power management the current draw from each mains phase is balanced and harmonic distortion is minimised, reducing the energy demand registered by your electricity meter. Reducing harmonics in operation maximises existing mains capacity because energy is not lost as heat in cabling and transformers.

Lamphead Details

UV lamphead benefits

E2C® UV System is safe for the widest range of heat-sensitive materials: Versatile and controllable, with no heat transfer to the machine or substrate at stand-by through the use of actively air cooled shutter technology.

  • Optically tuned reflectors maximise the lamps’ curing effect
  • Substrate heating is minimised
  • Air cooling is now as effective as water cooling
  • Supports the fastest printing speeds
  • Highest dose + highest intensity = maximum curing

Lowest maintenance

  • Engineered for fastest, easiest lamp changes
  • All replaceable components are plug-and-play for easiest maintenance
  • Patented active airflow path minimises air consumption and contamination of lamp and reflectors: less cleaning is required to maintain curing performance
