    Conventional UV;
    High power consumption
    High heat output
    Wider range of UV light 200 - 400nm wavelength
    High press speeds
    Requires external cooling, air or water.
    Lamp life about 1000 hours
    Wide range of ink's, varnish's and coating's
    Creates ozone
    Hazardous light output, must be shielded
    Must protect wiring, seals etc.

    LED UV:
    Less power consumption
    Less heat output
    Narrow wavelength 395 nm +/- 5%
    Press speeds - unknown
    No external cooling required
    Lamp life 20000 -50000 hours
    Limited ink's, varnish and coating's
    No ozone
    Less hazardous light output
