UV unit for pad printing cliche or signage plate processing.
Working sizes : 254 x 305 mm.
The plate is exposed through a film to produce the printing pattern after polymerization and development.
The exposure unit is equipped with 4 tubes of 15 W, digital timer for exposure time control and foam system to keep film and cliche/plate in close contact.
GF UV unit is used to expose pad printing clichés or signage plates.
Working sizes = 550 x 350 mm.
It is equipped with 6 tubes of 20 W .
Exposure time is adjusted by a digital timer.
A vacuum system, by valve inflation, provides a close contact between film and cliche/plate.
Aluminum is widely used for recognition items, plaques and awards. It is also an excellent choice for signs, nameplates and equipment labels.
Polyester is a superior signaling material due to its definition and bright colors on white background. The flexibility of polyester makes it ideal for use around pipes and angular surfaces.
Aluminum or polyester assortments are available.
They contain a variety of colors to test and make your first plates.
ID-MARK images are very durable and can last for many years without any special treatment.
If conditions where abrasion and scratching are a problem, simply add a protective overlam or varnish to increase the plate protection.
It is essential to produce a film with good density : Blacks must be very opaque and do not allow light to pass through during exposure
You can use a digital printed film or laser printed film sprayed with laser toner darkener, or inkjet film for inkjet printers.
These items are available in our catalog.
A darkroom is not necessary, short exposure to daylight is not a problem for unprocessed ID-MARK sheet.
Both laser or inkjet printers are suitable.
No matter the one you are using provided that you get a dense deep black image.
IDMark sheets should be exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.
Commonly called "black light" , this type of light is available in a number of exposure devices used in electronics industry, screen printing, ...
We offer several models of exposure units in different sizes
Printing photographs on an ID-MARK plate requires the use of a photographic quality film, called "negative halftone".
To get a very good quality film, you can have it printed by digital process.
It is advised to use a UVMark GF exposure unit type, equipped with a vacuum system, to ensure very close contact between film and ID-MARK sheet.
By overlapping transparent polyester ID-MARK sheets , you can get several color results.
Each layer requires a different film. Once assembled, all sheets form a complete image.
Adhesive backing , which is part of each ID-MARK sheet, will not be affected by water development.
ID-MARK Polyester sheets can be cut with a pair of sharp scissors or shears.
ID-MARK aluminum sheets can be cut with a metal shears.
We have a range of optional shears and corner rounders.
