Ultraviolet curing of inks and coatings is widely used in flexographic and letterpress printing of labels, decals,
and flexible packaging, as well as off-line for curing of coatings. In addition to standard linear arc lamps, we supply
microwave excited and mercury capillary lamps. All our lamps are designed with the specific electrical specifications,
dimensions, and end-fittings (including new quick mount fittings) to ensure 100% compatibility with your equipment.
UV lamps are also used to expose photopolymer and other printing plates.
UV light causes a chemical reaction in the inks and plate emulsions to cure
them, rather than evaporating solvents by drying. Infrared (IR) lamps are
used to dry ink by heat, rather than cure the ink. Caprock supplies original quality lamps for all makes and models of flexographic
equipment and all types of lamps including mercury vapor, metal halide, mercury
capillary, pulsed xenon and fluorescent UV

|UV Curing Lamps for Flexo Presses|
Many presses are equipped with lamps at each station as well in the finishing station, where UV cured coatings are applied. We supply replacements for all makes and models of equipment, both for press manufacturers, and curing systems manufacturer's. See below for a list of many popular companies for whose equipment we supply lamps, and for links to more specific information.
|Infrared (IR) Lamps for Flexo Presses and Off-Line Coating|
Unlike UV curing lamps, where the light causes a chemical reaction to cure ink, Infrared lamps produce heat to dry it. We supply short and medium-wave infrared (IR) lamps. See below for a list of many popular companies for whose equipment we supply lamps, and for links to more specific information.
|Exposure Lamps for Flexo and Photopolymer (Plastic) Plates|
Flexo plates may be exposed by high-output metal halide systems or high UV output fluorescent lamps. We supply both types for use in equipment like Olec, Douthitt, nuArc, Anderson & Vreeland, BASF, DuPont, Kelleigh, Philips and others.
