Swedish BJS Group receives UV LED Innovation Award
The Swedish industrial group BJS – and who are presently using Sherwin-Williams LED curing system – has been awarded the 2014 RadTech Emerging Technology Award as one of the first manufacturers to use UV LED technology in high volume wood manufacturing production. BJS received the award at an UV LED conference session at the RadTech UV & EB Technology Expo & Conference in Chicago, USA, in May 14, 2014.
The low energy consumption and the consistency of UV energy output from LED makes it possible for BJS to save energy while maintaining a more stable process and quality in their finishing line. The LED equipment is currently used at the company’s plant in Humpolec, Czech Republic.
