Can LED-UV help break this age-old pressroom bottleneck?

New drying technologies are driving faster press runs, and better color fidelity. Plus an unforeseen benefit: No one seems to miss all the offset spray powder wafting all around the pressroom!

“Stocks with hard-to-dry finishes like matte and silk no longer needed to sit for up to 48 hours before being sent to postpress. Now, says Bennett, everything coming off the Speedmasters “moves to the folder almost immediately” because the curing units can dry the ink as rapidly as the presses can lay it down.”
