    There Is Some LE-UV, H-UV, LED-UV Info Further Down The Forum I Did Some Testing Three Years Ago I Am Informed That The Ink Has Been Changed Since Then As Certain Things It Contained Then Are No Longer Aloud To Be Used Which I Have Been Advised Has Caused An Increase In Drying Issues On Coated Stock (I Have Not Done Any Testing Since Then So Can Not Confirm That Is The Case).
    In Brief It Changes Everything 180 Degrees Solves Your Drying Problems On Uncoated Stocks But You Get Problems On Coated Stocks That You Wouldn't Have With Stock Being Coated Or Normal UV.
    You Need Have A Need For It To Get An Roi, ie Alot Of Your Work Needs To Be On Unstable Stock To Justify It Rather Than Getting It To Solve A Problem On Job You Have Drying Problems With Once A Week!
    Other Things To Note The Lamps On H-UV/LE-UV/Normal UV Have Mercury And They Are At Present Under The Microscope As To Disposal, So There Is Push Towards LED-UV Even More So If They Can Increase The Lamp Life.
    Then You Also Have The Normal UV Problems Blanket Embossing,Ink Fly,Misting, Ink Life Etc,
    You Really Need To Under Take Your Own Testing To See If It Suits Your Requirements.

    We are running some H-UV inks in our shop. the thing is you have to work really close with ink supplier to adapt the formula to your needs. For us it does make it for every product. It works for all the non-food packaging we do. We see about a 20% difference in electricity needs.

    They had to modify everything to match our UV system. By trying you will probably find something that fits you. Toyo inks as some good options.

    Contact INX they have a testing press made by Air Motion Systems that can show you the difference in curing between LED-UV, Convention UV and H-UV.
    Print UV is coming up next month in Las Vegas all the players will be there. Or look for my LED-UV bootcamp at GraphExpo later this year. Are you looking to buying a new Komori or do you want to retrofit an existing press. Contact me and I can help you with your research. ajenkins@leduv.org
