(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'IMPRESSION DURCISSABLE D'ÉNERGIE À BASSE TEMPÉRATURE
Abstract
(EN)
A system and methods for printing and curing ink deposited on a substrate using a first light source and a second light source. In various embodiments, the first light source emits one or more wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation subtype C (UVC), and the second light source emits one or more wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation subtype A (UVA), subtype B (UVB), subtype V (UVV), or a combination thereof. The substrate is configured such that any ink deposited on the substrate by a printer head is predominantly exposed to the first light source prior to the second light source.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et des procédés pour imprimer et durcir l'encre déposée sur un substrat à l'aide d'une première source de lumière et d'une seconde source de lumière. Dans divers modes de réalisation, la première source de lumière émet une ou plusieurs longueurs d'onde de rayonnement électromagnétique de sous-type C (UVC), et la seconde source de lumière émet une ou plusieurs longueurs d'onde de rayonnement électromagnétique de sous-type A (UVA), de sous-type B (UVB), de sous-type V (UVV) ou une combinaison de ces derniers. Le substrat est configuré de telle sorte qu'une encre quelconque déposée sur le substrat par une tête d'imprimante est essentiellement exposée à la première source de lumière avant la seconde source de lumière.
