Graphics One Announces GO e-UV Ink and UV System

Graphics One, LLC (GO), an international distributor dedicated to providing innovative, high-quality products to digital imaging professionals worldwide is launching a new hybrid UV ink and curing system, which upgrades any new or used eco-solvent printer into a hybrid UV printing system.

Based on an extraordinary new ink technology, GO's e-UV ink is a combination UV ink and eco-carrier solution that combines the best of both technologies for either existing or new eco-solvent printers using EPSON print heads. Offering superior color quality, high gloss, adhesion up to 100 times better than traditional eco ink, and outstanding scratch resistance, GO's e-UV ink is instantly dry and can be used immediately after the image is printed and cured. Further, the e-UV system has a small carbon footprint and does not use nickel in its yellow ink, making it an environmentally friendly product.

Curing the UV ink is simple with GO's roll-up UV curing lamp. The UV LampBar includes an e-UV lamp which consumes very little energy—about the same as an incadescent bulb—and lasts up to 10,000 hours, or the life of most eco printers. The installation of the system is easy as the industrial curing lamp is housed in a roll-up unit which sits in front of the printer.

According to Kerby Bonilla, GO Tech Support and Product Development. "GO's e-UV system provides amazing benefits with a cost savings on ink alone of up to 30 percent. The outstanding quality of the images is further enhanced with its ability to work with virtually all eco-solvent substrates even being able to be used for car wraps without lamination. With virtually no hardware modifications, a user can be up and running quickly and not have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a new roll-to-roll UV printer. We have been stunned with the overall gloss and vibrancy and we are sure our customers will love this new UV hybrid technology."

The GO e-UV LampBar system starts at $4,995, and GO's e-UV ink is priced at $120 for a 440 ml cartridge. The GO e-UV LampBar and ink is available for shipping immediately and will be available through GO's distribution channel in both North and South America.
