Exposure of metal printing plates in flip-top and
overhead units requires high-output UV light. For proper operation and
long life, the electrical characteristics of the lamp must be correctly matched
to the equipment being used. We always meet or beat the original equipment

Paper plates are generally exposed in overhead units using quartz halogen lamps, with minimal UV output.
|Screen Printing Exposure Units|
Screen printers silkscreens are burned using
equipment similar to that used for offset printing plates, but with a special
bed to accommodate the screen frame. Silkscreen emulsions may require "diazo"
light (peaking around 410 nanometers), or "photopolymer" light (peaking
around 365 nanometers). Many newer emulsions are "dual-cure", and
may be exposed by either type.
Silkscreens may also be exposed with fluorescent lamps that are high in UV output, and either diazo or photopolymer characteristics.
|PCB (Printed Circuitboard) Exposure|
In addition to metal halide systems like those used for printers and screen printers, PCB manufacturers use water-cooled mercury capillary lamps for exposure.
|Flexo and Photopolymer (Plastic) Plates|
Like silkscreens, flexo plates may be exposed by high-output metal halide systems or high UV output fluorescent lamps.
