UV LED CuringUV LED Curing, a new alternative to conventional UV curing lamps, improves on existing UV curing AApplicationstechnology which is utilized for drying inks, coatings, adhesives and other UV sensitive materials through polymerization, by enabling thinner, heat-sensitive substrates, while reducing harmful by-products such as ozone and improving workplace safety. Additionally, UV LEDs can be turned on and off instantly and utilize input power efficiently enabling lower operation costs over the application lifetime.UV LED Technology is based on high intensity light sources created from arrays of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), rather than conventional bulb technologies. Scientific and industrial UV LED Curing applications can be found in areas such as printing, coatings, adhesives, fibre optics and micro-electronic assembly.UV LED Curing BenefitsUsing high intensity LED (Light Emitting Diode) light sources, (UV LEDs), enables the precision uv curing of materials not possible with lamps, as well as providing many benefits over conventional arc and flash lamps.UV LED Curing technology has been developed to rapidly cure UV adhesives, optical bonding of lenses, small glass components, plastic bonding, wire tracking, metals, inks, and UV curable coatings. To achieve superior UV bonding, UV LED Spot Curing systems are available with faster, more efficient curing through high power UV output, with a maximum irradianceUV LED curing is ideal for the UV curing of inks in digital inkjet, screen, flexographic and other printing processes, providing benefits to converters as well as the converting industry..
