New Year New Emphasis

2017 is going to be an interesting year as the world gets to learn more about what’s actually going to happen as a result of decisions made in 2016.

At the Jenton Group it’s no secret that the Brexit decision has caused us some issues in relation to currency losses and price increases but that’s the way it is and like all SMEs, our job is to observe, think and react to make the most of change.

All the products we make – the Ariana Convergers, Seal testers, Stackers and Pad placers – The Dimaco Label Verification and vision systems – the JenAct UV disinfection systems and the JentonUV UV curing systems and UV conveyors are all cheaper now (as long as you pay in something other than UK pounds!) so we’ll be working on our exports.  Potential OEMs and Distributors, please call us asap!

In the UK we’ll be developing our contribution to the sustainability agenda.  With so many products imported, supermarkets are conscious of trying to keep overall prices down so cutting waste is more important than ever.  Spotting weak seals with our seal testers stops products being shipped that will go bad, UV disinfection of air and surfaces reduces the risk of product going bad – and increases shelf life and label verification prevents unnecessary rejection because of information errors.  Jenton developments in helping prevent poor product from leaving the factory and helping prevent it from going off in the first place contributed to us winning the PPMA Sustainable Company of the year 2016 award.

So roll on 2017 – we are ready and waiting.

Dimaco joins the Jenton Group

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Dimaco, the UK’s leading developer of label verification systems.

The Dimaco team will remain based at their Bedford offices and will benefit from further investment and support of the Jenton Group including the creation of a new showroom with both Dimaco and  Jenton Ariana products on display.

JenACT wins PPMA Sustainability award

JenACT were very proud winners of the PPMA Sustainability award at this year’s PPMA awards dinner. The prize was awarded for their joint project with Marine Products (Scotland) Ltd on surface disinfecon of salmon fillets using ultra –violet light. A secondary benefit of the project was the doubling in shelf life of the salmon fillets from ten to twenty days. JenACT hold a number of UK and International patents and are at the forefront of UV disinfection technology.

For more information on surface and air disinfection, please contact Dr Jarek Bilek at or 01256 892194

UV Curing just gets better… 
As a leading supplier of microwave, arc and UV LED curing systems since the mid 1980s Jenton UV LED International has always been at the leading edge of UV technology. Two such examples are the Omnicure UV LED systems from Excelitas Technologies in Toronto Canada. With up to 14 was/cm sq from a small footprint, air-cooled  UV LEDs have really come of age. These systems are ideal for integration into inkjet printing, coatings and curing systems and, of course, Jenton International’s CAD team are on hand to provide a turnkey solution. For users of UV LED systems, accurate measurement of the UV intensity has sometimes been an issue. The new LED-R radiometer from EIT Systems of Virginia USA has a near rectangular UV filter from 370- 420nm making it the perfect choice for UV LEDs. To discuss any aspects of UV curing and radiometry please contact our UV Sales Manager,Jeremy Woodbridge at or 01256 892194
