Fusion UV Systems Awarded Patents

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
GAITHERSBURG, Md., Sept. 25 -- Fusion UV Systems Inc. was recently awarded two patents. The first is for an apparatus that improves the ultraviolet (UV) coating process for filament type substrates such as optical fibers (including ribbon and coloring), industrial thread, wire, cable and fiberglass filaments and rovings; the second patent is for an apparatus and method to improve the efficiency and reduce the costs and space requirements of coating threads and other filaments with UV coatings.

Bob Rhoades, inventor and Fusion UV's fiber optic sales engineer, said the first device may create markets for UV curing, especially in applications where reducing heat on the filament substrate was too costly. "There are possible cost reductions for optical fiber production, fiber coloring and ribbon matrix applications," he said.

In addition to industrial thread, the applications for the second patent include any filament-type substrate, such as optical fiber coloring, wire and cable coating, composite fiberglass filament and roving sizing and coatings, the company said.
