Phoseon Reflects on Year of New Technology Offerings

Innovative UV LED Solution Provider reached key milestones in 2018 while launching several new products

Hillsboro, Oregon (February 12, 2019) – Phoseon Technology, the leader for Innovative LED Solutions™, completed a successful 2018 during which it launched a number of key products and technologies while delivering its 100,000th UV LED curing lamp.

“We achieved a number of major business wins in flexographic and fiber optics markets in 2018 and significantly increased our manufacturing footprint implementing modern lean practices and automation” said Bill Cortelyou, President and CEO of Phoseon Technology. “We also strengthened our presence in Asia. I am very proud of our team and am looking forward to more great accomplishments and growth in 2019.”

Among the products and technologies that Phoseon debuted in 2018 were the FireJet™ FJ605, FireLine™ FL440 and FireEdge™ FE100 UV LED curing systems:

  • The FJ605, a self-contained air-cooled UV LED curing lamp, for flexographic applications delivering substantially more curing energy than currently offered. The FJ605 was showcased at Label Expo 2018 in a flexographic press operating at 1,000 feet per minute.
  • The water-cooled FL440 was designed for the most performance demanding print and industrial curing applications, offering scalability to support custom length options. It delivers the most UV output available in the market with up to 135W per 25mm Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM™) array.
  • The FE100 is the first ever passive air-cooled UV LED solution on the market. It is specifically designed for digital inkjet pinning, with a width of less than 16mm, making it ideal for space constrained environments.

“We achieved a number of major business wins in flexographic and fiber optics markets in 2018 and significantly increased our manufacturing footprint implementing modern lean practices and automation. We also strengthened our presence in Asia. I am very proud of our team and am looking forward to more great accomplishments and growth in 2019.”

Last year also saw the introduction of the revolutionary KeyPro™ KP100 microplate decontamination system, a standalone decontamination unit that saves time and money compared to existing chemical and heat methods. The KP100 for Life Sciences researchers and lab managers is targeted for use with compatible microplate and preparatory slides commonly found in laboratory environments providing increased repeatability through the use of stored protocols for different equipment categories.
