COLOR SELLS “Think about it. A hundred million people a week go through Wal- Mart. No television programs ever accumulated that kind of an audience” – Peter Hoyt, Executive Director, In-Store Marketing Institute. Retailers visitor statistics per week: 140,000,000 consumers a week go through Wal-Mart’s 3,400 stores. 22,000,000 consumers a week go through Home Depot’s 1,677 stores. 42,000,000 consumers a week go through 7 Eleven’s 3,267 stores.
Just a few Wal-Mart facts… A standard Wal-Mart carries 60,000 products (that’s 50 products in one shopping cart per day for 3 years while never buying the same product twice). A Wal-Mart Super Center carries 140,000 products. Wal-Mart sells $1B per day of product or $43m per hour. 94% of Americans live within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart opens 6 new stores per week in the U.S. and 20-30 per week globally. Although 2008 retail sales were some of the worst in 10 years, Wal-Mart posted a 3% gain beating it’s own forecast.

COLOR SELLS Wholesale clubs, warehouse stores and today’s marketing chain demands shelf-ready packaging, greater message amplification and shelf velocity and branding. Drying enables these pre-requisites by adding color, pop, information, gloss with and without varnish, scuff and rub resistance, box strength, water resistance and a smooth tactile experience for the consumer.
SO, WHY DRYERS? THE BENEFITTS Inline multi-color printing and varnishing. Printing, over-varnishing, die cutting and finishing on high hold out board (clay coat and synthetics) in a single pass. Improved ink on-press stability. Minimized (or eliminated) tracking, marking and smearing through unit transfer and stacker belts. Minimized ink build-up and marking from anvil covers, maximizing up time. Elimination of ghosting. Maximized gloss levels of ink and varnish. Improved color brilliance and quality through dry trapping. Significant reduction of waste. Elimination of repeating when regular or UV over-varnishing in-line. COLOR SELLS JB MACHINERY
Combined High Speed Infrared Radiation to excite the volatile liquids & AirJet High Velocity Air Impingement to scrub the volatiles from the boundary layer at the ink or varnish surface. JB MACHINERY
Forced Hot Air as it Applies to our Drying Solution JB provide AirJet impingement at the entry & exit of the drying zone, powered by internal fans corresponding directly with the cassette chambers, which serve to pressurize the chambers, minimizing the amount of paper dust and debris that can reside in the cassettes. The Combination of the High Speed IR radiation & AirJet impingement excites & scrubs the volatiles from the boundary layer of the ink or varnish surface. All competitive systems use air ducted from a remote outside source. However, the ducting itself dramatically reduces the air pressure and also hinders machine access. The efficiency of our air to ink film impingement, allied with the vacuum transfer exhaust and infrared radiation maximizes the drying effect.

Case Study:– CEMSA (Cajas Y Empaques Modernos) Mexico City, Mexico – Mexico City based Cajas Y Empaques Modernos recently installed a SUN dwell section with integrated JB Machinery Final Flexo Dryer on their existing Hycorr 66 x 85 inch 3 color flexo rotary die cutter. According to the boxmaker, immediate improvements were noticeable in both quality and productivity. The first job off the new configuration showed a productivity increase of 31% in addition to a significant reduction in the down time needed for anvil cover washing. Director General Ing. Juan Javier Gonzalez was pleased to report, “It’s working great, We’re already running faster and achieving stronger colors and higher gloss than we did before the dryers. We no longer sacrifice valuable resources performing press side reformulation of the ink to meet our drying needs.” Gonzalez added, “Also, we’re seeing increases in up-time because we’re not stopping the machine to clean the anvil multiple times an hour. We ran 110,000 sheets, stopping every 33,000 sheets for cleaning. Previously on this job we would have been running slower and stopping more or less every 20 minutes for cleaning.” The new units were purchased through Goettsch International who represents both JB Machinery and SUN Automation in Latin America.

Preferred Doctor Blades: 30˚ Angle USA (60˚ Angle Europe)– BTG Ceramic Tipped Steel. 45˚ Angle – Tooled Steel. NOTES: 1-Board temperatures should be above 70˚ Farenheit (21˚ Celsius) for optimum drying performance. 2-Although gloss levels are substrate hold-out dependant, during actual production trials it has been established that the optimum gloss level of water based varnish is achieved at 7 bcm or 12cc’s. 3-UV gloss levels can be enhanced by warming the UV varnish to a temperature of approximately 100˚Fahrenheit or 40˚Celsius. Powerblanket at www.powerblanket.com, supply an electrical heater blanket that wraps around the UV varnish container to heat the UV varnish. 4-Ensure all vacuum transfers are ‘Dryer Ready’. FINE PRINTING GUIDE-LINES CONTROLLING THE PROCESS FOR MAXIMIZED QUALITY & PRODUCTIVITY
Why UV? UV curing enables fast job turnaround through in-line, on press finishing. By embracing UV curing, you can profitably achieve superb finish quality and high impact at relatively low cost. Finish and quality that just yesterday required multi-pass operations to achieve.
COLOR SELLS Applying UV over-varnish will provide the following benefits Maximized gloss levels. Full print protection. Considerable reduction of waste. Increased water resistance and box strength. Varnish remains open indefinitely aiding rapid startup and make ready. Extremely high scuff and rub resistance. JB MACHINERY

Apart from the infinitely superior gloss, scuff, rub resistance, high impact and ease of handling of UV. Why do operators and owners alike prefer to varnish with UV rather than water based? Customer converters are telling us that they will give UV varnishing away rather than run water based varnish

ADVANTAGE – JB MACHINERY Over 150 years of combined ink chemistry, drying/curing, infrared (medium, high speed medium and short wave), hot air (both high volume and compressed) and ultra-violet (air-cooled, water-cooled and water- filtered) technology experience in all print disciplines including: Litho, folding carton, wide/narrow web, gravure, screen printing, preprint and flexo direct print sheet-fed. The last 10 years have been dedicated and will remain exclusively focused on the flexo direct print sheet-fed market, which eliminates research and application fragmentation while enabling continuous market intelligence, OEM standardization and superior product research/development through an agile organization. Global agencies throughout the world are specific to the flexo direct print sheet-fed market and carry multiple complementary product lines to JB (see list attached), which ensures consistent and knowledgeable representation in any part of the world. JB continues to be the standard IR/UV supplier of choice to all of the major OEM players in today’s market including, but not limited to: Dong Fang, Göpfert, Martin, MarquipWardUnited and SUN Automation. Consequently, we are intimately involved on all levels regarding executive, commercial and engineering integration with direct meetings approximately 4 times a year. JB has nurtured very strong relationships and continues to partner with the major paper, ink, anilox and other major component suppliers in order to understand and deliver the complete process from day one, not just a product! As a consequence we now have over 600 IR dryer units and 35 full inline multi-color (5 to 9 colors – modular and/or high board line) IR/UV printing and die cutting lines, which has led to a wealth of experience and product development. JB has continued to develop new product that benefits the existing JB customer base and/or prospects as evidenced by ColorCure™ (see press kit) and soon to be released KleenPlate: A continuous hickey removal system.
