BackgroundNew applications keep emerging for UV printing based on long-lasting, energy-efficient LEDs as a curing source. According to Yole Developpement, a global research company based in France, the UV curing market is expected to expand to approx. USD300 million by 2019* 3. Demand for high-speed UV printing is rising especially among wide-format inkjet billboard-printing applications, coating applications and adhesive applications. Design requirements increasingly specify an air-cooled UV light with high output for higher productivity. *1 Based on research by Kyocera; among air-cooled UV-LED curing lights for UV printing (as of February 28, 2018).*2 Based on research by Kyocera; among air-cooled UV-LED curing lights with a higher UV intensity than 12W/cm 2 (as of February 28, 2018).*3 Source: Yole Developpement (UV LEDs: Technology, Manufacturing and Application Trends) For more information and images, please visit: https://global.kyocera.com/news/2018/0302_mbsc.html About KYOCERA Kyocera Corporation (NYSE:KYO)(TOKYO:6971) ( http://global.kyocera.com/), the parent and global headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was founded in 1959 as a producer of fine ceramics (also known as "advanced ceramics").
