Hirsch Int’l ( says its new temperature-sensing option for the company’s quartz flash units takes the guesswork out of setting flash-cure units for the perfect dwell time. According to Hirsch, setting dwell time with adjustable timers requires a trial-and-error method that often results in waste. The sensor reads the temperature of the ink surface and, once the desired temperature is reached, the flash automatically turns off. Hirsch quartz flash-cure units are designed to work with MHM equipment, and any of the company’s flash units can be modified to work on other press models.
