Infrared emitters for drying printing inks

Infrared emitters save energy, space and time in your printing process

Infrared emitters for drying printing inks

Napkins with flexoprinting, brochures with offset or screen printing for advertising materials or automotive glass – the most varied materials are printed.
For digital printing, the ink must be dried as rapidly as possible to keep pace with the printing process.
Especially in the case of water-based inks, a Heraeus carbon infrared system (CIR) can help to better use the full capacity of high-speed printing heads. Hybrid infrared emitters dry both at the surface and inside the product (e.g. cardboard and serviettes).

Your advantages with infrared heat:

  • Transfer of energy without contact
  • Low maintenance expenditure
  • Infrared emitters are precisely adjusted to the product.
  • The optimal wavelength accelerates drying and makes drying more energy-efficient
