Printer's Platemakers

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 manufacturer's specs to give you quality and the best value for your money.

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.

Flexo and Photopolymer (Plastic) Plates

Like silkscreens, 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, and others.

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.
