Phoseon Technology launches high-dose air-cooled UV LED curing solution


Products

Phoseon Technology (Hilsboro, Oregon) is introducing the FireJet FJ645UV LED self-contained, air-cooled curing lamp for flexographic applications at LabelexpoEurope2019 in Brussels, Belgium. With a 40mm wide emitting window, the FJ645provides longer UV exposure time and greater dose, improving through-cure and adhesion of difficult to cure materials; especially over-print varnishes, and dense blacks. The increased dose allows for higher speed without the need for additional facilities requirements, such as exhaust blowers or water chillers.

VARTA Microbattery: CoinPower brings energy into digitised medicine and fitness


Exhibitions / Events

The way we deal with our own health is changing dramatically. What was previously discussed in a personal conversation with a doctor is increasingly shifting to "indirect" contact, for example via telemedicine. At the same time, more and more people rely on wearables for independent monitoring of medical parameters. The prerequisite for reliable data acquisition and transmission is a compact power supply in the smallest possible space. VARTA Microbattery's lithium-ion batteries with their high energy density and capacity have proven to be a reliable source of energy. The company, based in Ellwangen, Germany, will present its portfolio of lithium-ion batteries for medical applications and wearables on 11 September at the 35th Wearable Technologies Conference 2019 Asia in Bangkok, which takes place in conjunction with the Medical Fair Thailand, at booth WT113.
