GEW Launches Next-Generation UV Monitor

CRAWLEY, UK | GEW is offering a multi-point UV monitor designated the mUVm, a set of one or up to five UV sensors that give continuous monitoring of UV output on a press. Reportedly, the monitor provides effective ink curing by guaranteeing output from the lamp and reflector system. 

A simple user interface displays the UV output of the lamps on the RHINO system touchscreen, and alarms can be set to warn when the output gets too low or too high. Company says with up to five sensors per lamp monitoring once a second, unprecedented control over the UV curing process is achieved, potential waste is eliminated, and efficiency is improved.

The mUVm enables the user to easily see when UV lamps reach end of life. Accurate UV outputs determine when to change lamps to extend their life, while saving energy by reducing lamp running power, without risking undercured product.

With new product, it is now said to be possible to attain 100% UV inspection for every batch when using the API user interface, and generate a UV curing certificate for every batch by recording live UV outputs for every lamp.

The mUVm is designed to comply with European legislation on food contact packaging, including Framework Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 article 3; Good Manufacturing Practice Regulation (EC) 2023/2006; Plastics Regulation (EU) 10/2011, and Swiss Ordinance SR 817.023.21.
