The products bring manufacturers the flexibility to tailor their LED UV curing systems to their needs via three emitter patterns, as well as three wavelengths – 365nm, 385nm and 405nm.
Designed to offer higher, more consistent curing intensity than traditional spot curing systems, an MX-Series LED UV curing system comprises a controller and an emitter. The product range began as the MX-150 5mm x 5mm spot lamp and its controller, and expanded to include the MX-250 50mm x 50mm flood pattern emitter.
The new products in the range include the MX-275, an emitter that produces a 5mm x 50mm line shaped curing pattern. Also available is an optional multi-channel controller that can control up to four different emitters either simultaneously or individually, so that multiple emitters can be grouped together to create larger curing pattern matrices, as needed, or alternatively for four individual workstations to operate independently from the same controller.
The new design means that the LED flood curing system can be tailored to the user’s curing needs, in terms of size, pattern and wavelength of curing. The system can be set up as a bench-top unit, be mounted to a robotic arm for an automated curing process or further from the controller, without fear of intensity variations.
“The Dymax MX-Series gives users increased flexibility when setting up LED UV curing processes,” explained Peter Swanson, managing director of Intertronics. “Manufacturers can benefit from high intensity LED UV curing at all stages of their project — as it scales up, the user can add more emitters and opt for different curing patterns. This flexibility means that manufacturers can futureproof their UV curing processes, with no requirement for a huge investment to accommodate changes later on.”
