Spot-Curing SystemTORRINGTON, Conn., Nov. 30, 2009 – The BlueWave LED Prime UVA high-intensity spot-curing system from Dymax Corp. offers many advantages over conventional systems, including no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cool cures and constant intensity for thousands of hours.
The system generates curing energy using high-intensity LEDs and, the company says, produces nearly double the intensity of other LED spot-curing lamps on the market. It delivers maximum curing energy through a 5-mm-diameter lightguide, with an output of up to 15 W/cm2.
While providing more power, the design also eliminates the safety concerns from the high heat generated by units with the LED array at the end of the wand. The relatively narrow frequency band produced by LEDs generates cooler curing temperatures at the substrate level.
The unit is CE-certified and RoHS-compliant, and it offers user-friendly operation and provides a useful LED life of more than 50,000 h. It is a good curing system for manufacturers looking to complement their “green” initiatives.
It includes an intensity adjustment feature that allows users to adjust and control intensity output from 0% to 100% to assist with process validation and control. Intensity level measurement is easily accomplished with the proprietary Accu-Cal 50-LED radiometer which is used to take readings through the lightguide in process development and actual production settings, providing an accurate and consistent method of light-intensity measurement.
The company offers single- and multi-legged lightguides that are compatible with the system. Applications include spot curing of various coatings as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, polyvinyl chloride, PET, metal, glass and many other substrates.
