NUVA2 Fully Aircooled UV Curing System

The NUVA2 UV curing system is the most effective UV technology for colour UV inkjet printing, as well as for high-speed coding, marking and serialisation. NUVA2 are fully aircooled UV curing systems. They are available in widths of up to 250cm (100in).

RHINO embedded service technology continuously monitors the system, thus guarding against out-of-specification parameters that could result in an unplanned stoppage. GEW UV systems are engineered for operation in the most challenging conditions. They come with a 5-year warranty to avoid unexpected maintenance costs.

With NUVA2 UV curing, your machine runs faster for longer, with less energy and no downtime.

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.


Power

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 65 cm 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

NUVA2 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 aircooled shutter technology.

  • Optically tuned reflectors maximise the lamps’ curing effect
  • Substrate overheating is reduced
  • 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
  • Lamp’s ceramic end design prevents breakages during lamp change (patent pending)
  • 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
