Inca Spyder 150 UV-curable flatbed uses LED lights to cure UV ink Print E-mail

During 12 days inspecting printers at DRUPA '04 trade show in Germany , the Inca Spyder 150 UV-curing flatbed wide format inkjet printer impressed me with its near-glossy surface finish, excellent rendition of reds, and generally photo-realistic quality. The quality is among the best of any UV-cured ink flatbed printers.

But then the Inca Spyder 150 UV flatbed did not appear at the subsequent Photokina 2004 trade show in Cologne , in September, nor at SGIA trade show a few days later in Minneapolis . Or maybe I simply missed it in the shadow of the larger Inca Columbia Turbo flatbed printer?

But I can’t help but be curious why the Inca Spyder 150 has not been either at an Inca booth or a Sericol booth at recent trade shows since DRUPA? Perhaps I can learn more at FESPA trade show in Germay, late May 2005. Our pre-event FLAAR Report will be ready this week, way in advance of the show itself.

Then at FESPA 2007 (Germany) Fujifilm (which had bought Sericol), finally brought the Inca Spyder 150 back to trade shows. By then I knew a lot more about LED UV curing, since I had recently spent a week at the LED lamp R&D department of Sun LLC (no relation to Sun Chemical, Sun LLC is in Novosibirsk, Russia). Now FLAAR has lots about LED curing for UV inks. You can find all our publications on UV-curing and printers on www.wide-format-printers.NET.

Now it's almost time for DRUPA 2008, and Fujifilm-Sericol will have an impressive booth to show their Inca Spyder 320 and Inca Columbia Turbo.
