UV coater lamps
Over the past few years, the multitude of UV
coaters has increased exponentially. Whether gloss, matte or satin, UV
finishes adds high-value appeal to items such as calendars, direct mail
and book covers. Colors are enhanced while product is protected. UV
coating is one of the most requested finishes today. Customers ask for
it by name for business cards, post cards and direct mail offerings.
The lure of a cost effective, high profit application has led to
increased coater demand.
Like any machine cycle, USA made UV coaters have
given way to more “cost-effective” machines produced in the Far East.
Most companies distribute Chinese machines with English sounding names.
One look “under the hood” will confirm you cannot go to the local
electrical supply to find replacement parts. This does not mean these
machines are inferior; rather one must be cautious before taking the
plunge. Many Chinese machines are sold by trading companies. They buy
from company A today and company B tomorrow. Obtaining replacement
parts can be problematic, especially replacement UV lamp. Not to worry,
TCS Technologies can produce a USA manufactured lamp to keep your
coater running. No order is too small and we ship worldwide.
We offer replacement lamps for coaters sold by TEC
Lighting, UV Research, Al’s Co UV, FMA, Apollo, Steinemann, Royo and
