Description

The A.W.T./American M&M Quantum is a technological break-through in UV drying. It is a revolutionary new high-energy low heat system which more than doubles UV curing capacity. The Quantum automatically regulates IR initiation and UV energy output to insure effective curing of all UV clear and pigmented coatings.

Our patent pending air-cooling system withdraws heat from both sides of the reflector and maintains low temperature throughout the curing unit. The Quantum eliminates the high maintenance, inefficient water-cooling systems.

Now, because of the accelerated high-speed curing capability of the A.W.T./American M&M Quantum and unique construction, it can instantly cure UV inks on even the most heat sensitive stocks while reducing heat build-up by one-half, requiring only a single module for most applications.

The unique Bi-modal™ constructions, together with its mercury vapor lamps selectively concentrate IR and UV energy to assure complete, cool and rapid curing. Individual lamp output control allows curing at 300, 200, 150 and even 100 watts per linear inch for curing the widest possible range of substrates, including paper, cardboard, vinyl and plastics.

Bi-modal™ construction and high speed curing are complemented by pressurized air from the chill section during the cure. These three features maintain lowest possible temperatures nearly eliminating heat distortion in even the most heat-sensitive of printed and cured stocks.

Build-in safety interlocks at all openings instantly shut-off power if lifted preventing accidental operator exposure to UV light source.

Features


High Rate of Production
Proven twice as fast as any other UV curing system on the market; cures many UV inks on conventional substrates, as well as on heat-sensitive, distortion-prone substrates.

Air-Chill Action
A 1/3-HP blower provides a high-speed air stream, instantly reducing substrate temperatures by as much as 80 °F; cooler and more effective than other chilling units that require an external water supply.

Individual Power Settings
100, 150, 200 or 300 watts per linear inch of lamp to instantly cure UV inks on many types of plastic, glass and metal substrates.

Independent Production Capability
Operates independently to meet the curing demands of all manual, semi-automatic and automatic presses.

Integrated Controls
Start/stop action of the chiller is integrated into the controls of the Quantum UV curing module.

Vacuum Holddown
Safely secures lightweight stocks and removes ozone and trace volatiles from the shop area.

Variable-Speed Conveyor
Process prints at all belt speeds from 35 to 100 feet per minute.

Digital Belt Speed Readout
Reveals exact belt speed (in feet per minute) and allows the operator to reset jobs at the proper speed; saves time when restarting or rerunning similar or identical jobs.

Resomite Belting
Exclusive, non-metallic, woven mesh belt material resists acids and other chemicals; easily cleaned and will not mar stock.
