Packaging graphics solutions provider Autumn Graphics, a flexo trade shop in London, Ontario, has invested in the Shine LED Lamp Kit, innovated by Miraclon as a simple, low-cost route from inconsistent fluorescent exposure to the multiple advantages of LED technology.

A Shine LED kit has been retrofitted to a plate exposure frame at the company’s location in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

“The plate room staff are enjoying faster exposure times and more consistent plate production,” said Operations Manager Wess Gano, “and are spending much less time calibrating and recalibrating.” He added that additional Shine LED Lamp Kits will be installed at other Autumn sites in the future.

By utilizing customers’ existing fluorescent exposure frames, the Shine LED Lamp Kit can be retrofitted in the field in a few hours, according to Miraclon, offering users up to 5,000 hours compared to 800 hours for fluorescent tubes. 

The Shine LED Lamp Kit won top awards for both Sustainability and Technical Innovation at this year’s FTA Excellence in Flexography Awards.

Autumn Graphics provides converters, printers, agencies and consumer product clients with pre-media production, plate production, brand management, 3D packaging development and print production technical services. Founded in 1982, the company has been a FLEXCEL NX System user since 2008, having been a beta site for the technology.
