Installation: Benford UV curing system for 2 color Heidelberg CD 102

In May of 2019 Benford installed a UV system on our 2 color Heidelberg CD 102.The system was ordered and delivered in a short time frame. The installation went off without a hitch and only in 2 days! Training was simple and the operation system itself is very basic and user friendly.

We replaced a Graphic’s 2 interdeck and 3 EOP UV light system with a Benford 1 interdeck and 2 EOP light system due to much down time and UV lamps always blowing. We have been running 24/7 for the past 6 months with only one UV light change due to hours. There hasn’t been any issues with drying, lamp life or system errors. Benford supplied and went over an easy maintenance program which we follow routinely which keeps the system in great shape.

In May 2020 we have installed our 2nd Benford Hybrid UV system on a CD 102 2/2 perfector with a coater. This press was installed with 2 LED lamps in unit 2 and 4 and 2 EOP UV lamps in delivery to dry coatings. Again we had a flawless install even during the world pandemic with very happy results. Install was quick and all retro fits to press looked excellent.

I would highly recommended the Benford to replace any system that causes you lost production time, Their team is highly motivated and respond to every request very quickly. Great company, great team!

Installation: UV curing system for Heidelberg XL 106 10 color perfector

Primary Color recently purchased a Heidelberg XL 106 10 color perfector with a double coater. After much research we decided to go with Benford to supply the UV components for the press. We decided on a unique configuration using a combination of Benford’s LED, ECOUV and conventional mercury vapor lamps in the coaters. We are not new to UV printing however this is our first experience with LED.

We definitely made the right decision. The equipment is robust and fits well with the press. The installation was flawless and the techniques were spot on. We hit the ground running and have not stopped. We are getting perfect curing on material from coated or uncoated paper to rigid vinyl and other plastics. Simple to operate, trouble free and extremely competitive on price. We could not have hoped for a better result. I highly recommend anyone looking to get into or increase their presence in the UV market take a hard look at Benford. We recommend them with no reservations.
