An Upper Heyford company pioneering UV technology development has been commended for its social and export achievements with two major Awards wins at last Friday’s (April 19th) Cherwell Valley Business Awards.
Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) picked up both Export and Overall Business of the Year Award at the event’s Gala Dinner held at Rye Hill Golf Club.
The 2000-founded company makes state-of-the-art semi-conductor based UV LED light engines both for an incoming generation of digital printers and enabling new applications in electronics manufacturing.
Sponsors of the Export Award, Cherwell District Council judges commended the winner’s continued export achievement and most especially noted significant growth in ITL exports within Europe, against the prevailing economic climate.
ITL managing director Adrian Lockwood returned to the stage to collect the highly prestigious and most coveted Overall Business of the Year Award, selected from amongst the winners of the other award categories.
Judges from Banbury-based sponsor Norbar Tools remarked that in addition to product innovation and export achievements, ITL’s ongoing commitment to staff care and training and the company’s work within the local community were all deciding factors in the decision.
“This has been a team effort,” said Adrian.
“Winning both of these awards recognises the achievements of everyone at ITL and we’re all delighted and proud to receive them.”

UK UV developer Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) has introduced an air-cooled LED curing system with class leading size-to-power ratio making it the most compact on the market.
Measuring just 86mm long x 54mm wide x 79mm high, the MZero LED has a cure length of 30mm and generates > 4W/cm² centred around 395nm.
It utilises all of the proven features and benefits of its sister arc product, incorporating them into an LED alternative enhanced by extra functionalities including instant on/off, variable power and low temperature operation.
A ready-to-go turnkey solution that is simple to integrate with no additional parts required, the MZero LED is highly user-friendly, with a plug-and-play lamp head design feature enabling simple machine integration or field installation.
Ideally suited to digital inkjet applications such as small plotters, product printers or marking and encoding applications, the system is equally at home curing adhesives, sealants and coatings in electronics, product assembly and other industrial applications.
With a service life in excess of 20,000 hours, the MZero LED is sold with a comprehensive warranty backed by global support direct from ITL and its strategic partner, IST Metz.
Its launch follows January’s introduction of a similar variant to ITL’s heritage SubZero UV lamp range.
“After a year of major investment in R&D, we’re undertaking a significant product rollout in 2013 that includes taking established brands to new performance levels via LED technology,” says ITL sales director David Johnson. “The MZero LED is our second new product to market this year and there is more to come.”
