Transform any flexo press with the Illumina LED Retrofit System by Fujifilm. The new Illumina LED retrofit system converts any traditional UV or water-based flexo press to UV LED curing and delivers incredible productivity and cost-saving benefits.

  • Run high-shrink films with no chill rollers
  • Reduce utility energy cost by 86% to 90%
  • Lower maintenance costs with LED lamps that last 20,000+ hours compared to 1,000 hours for mercury lamps

The most powerful UV LED curing system is also the longest lasting

Illumina represents the most powerful UV LED curing system on the market, new or retrofit. Patented LED technology delivers up to 44% more energy toward the substrate, resulting in faster curing. The more efficient design of Illumina is proven to take full advantage of the latest LED ink technology, including the breakthrough Fujifilm 300 Series flexo ink system. Illumina also provides the longest operating lifetime of any LED-curing technology. Higher efficiency combined with the patented heat dissipation system dramatically reduces chip degradation over time. Operators typically begin at a very low initial output power setting and adjust upwards. The result is a lamp life expectancy that’s more than 20 times the lifetime of traditional UV mercury lamps.

Illumina UV LED drives down operating costs

The UV LED cure is an instant on/off process, dramatically lowering the energy usage and stress on lamp bulbs experienced in conventional ‘always-on’ UV mercury lamp curing. UV LED also eliminates the costs generated by cooling air blowers, ozone extraction and heat makeup systems.

Faster LED curing results in faster production speeds

Faster LED curing means you can run at faster press speeds, and Illumina sets a new standard for flexo printing speed on standard paper and film stock. The retrofit is also fast and worry-free. The compact design of the lllumina system easily fits on most flexo presses at any width. Plus, Illumina’s compact housing can be mounted on any flexo press without adding an extra roller as required by other LED retrofit systems.
