Digital Light Lab said today that it is introducing a new product to its LED liquid-cooled curing product line.
The 6” AccuCure High-Powered LightBar system offers continuous or pulse mode of operation without the need for shutters and cool-down or warm-up times. A wide beam aperture of 152mm x 25mm and optional control processes such as 4-20mA and 0-5V works well for UV curing in high-speed production manufacturing, according to the Knoxville, Tenn.-based company.
LEDs provide energy-efficient, targeted curing, compared with other systems, which produce a variety of UV emission peaks and IR outputs that do not cure the product and may actually harm the substrate, the company added. Lower operating energy and maintenance costs may offset the upfront cost of an LED system, and its curing solutions last tens of thousands of hours compared with the hundreds of hours of operation of a mercury system.
The AccuCure High-Power LightBar is available in a variety of UV/VIS wavelengths starting at a 6W/cm² intensity. Custom-designed systems are available.
