nir technology overview
_ _ _ nir ® Technology Overview
  • Only AdPhos has a peak irradiation wavelength of .8 µm
    • Most other inkjet drying systems use straight infrared at 2 µm and above.
    • Other systems using _ _ _ nir(NearInfraRed)technology are at 1.2 µm.
nir technology overview3
_ _ _ nir ® Technology Overview

_ _ _ nir ®(NearInfraRed) technology enables application of the highest energy quantities on the greatest diversity of substrates

Absorption/Transmission of Energy for Inkjet Applications

  • Black ink absorbs energy across all wavelengths
  • _ _ _ nir applies more energy to the ink and less to white paper compared to traditional _ _ _ ir

Absorption/Transmission of Energy for Inkjet Applications

_ _ _ nir Technology Infrared Technology

0.8 µm = 3500K >1.5 µm = 2500K

Paper Paper

  • NIR radiation travels through substrates, reflects off of the mailbase or reflector material and dries the ink from top and bottom
  • IR radiation dries via a “top down” approach. The ink and paper are equally heated from the top only.

Mailbase or Reflector

benefits of nir technology
Benefits of _ _ _ nir®Technology
  • Greater production speeds and throughput
    • Due to the greater absorption of energy by the ink and not the substrates, the inks dry approx. 30% faster and more thoroughly than with conventional infrared technology.
    • Reduced heating of substrates results in less paper curl and improves substrate handling.
    • Precise energy control / Tool-less lamp replacement
  • Ability to inkjet on greater variety of substrates
    • Faster and more thorough drying expands the substrate space printers can image.
      • One customer expanded their number of coated substrates they were able to print and dry on from 6 to over 30
      • With the proper ink formulatuion (ie. Flexprint Aqueous) customers can print and dry at full production speeds on even the most challenging of substrates – even on some plastic card and UV overcoated materials.
benefits of nir technology7
Benefits of _ _ _ nir®Technology
  • Reduced operating cost
    • _ _ _nir® requires approx 30% less power than IR
    • Patented reflector system reflects >98% of the energy toward where it is needed.
