Portability, precision and power

Intertronics is aiming to be ‘spot’ on with its new UV curing lamp.

Indeed, to improve UV curing options available for the medical, industrial, electronics, automotive and optical industries, Intertronics has launched the IUV101 LED curing spot lamp. The new lamp offers up to 2,000 mW/cm2 intensity in a cost-effective and portable package. “It enables industry to cure UV adhesives that respond to long wave UV-A wavelengths between 360nm and 380nm efficiently, economically and easily,” states the adhesives specialist.

UV curing spot lamps allow rapid curing of adhesives, typically in less than ten seconds, but in many cases even quicker. “A reduced curing time improves productivity and reduces production costs. UV curing lamps, based on LED technology, will do this in a more energy-efficient way than conventional broad-spectrum UV curing lamps,” the company adds.

Using the IUV101 LED curing lamp, designers and engineers can focus UV light precisely on the spot where the adhesive will be cured. The device has no warm-up period, offering consistent high intensity, with an LED service life of up to 15,000 hours. The IUV101 spot lamp comes with everything the user needs to get started, including a pair of safety glasses.

The IUV101 is suitable for industrial environments, including workshops, assembly lines and research and development laboratories. The spot lamp is suited to both high and low volume applications that include glass assembly, electronic component ruggedisation, wire tacking and lens bonding. There are potential uses in non-destructive testing and fluorescence excitation.

“The IUV101 offers all the benefits of a handheld LED UV curing lamp, without any compromise on power,” explains Peter Swanson, managing director of Intertronics. “With intensity up to 2,000 mW/cm2, this spot lamp is a significant development for a piece of equipment this size. This product could deliver significant benefits to industry, particularly for those performing delicate or intricate tasks like printed circuit board assembly. This technology is bringing portability, precision and power in an affordable, handheld UV curing spot lamp.”

The IUV101 will work optimally with UV curable adhesives that respond to long wave UV light (typically around 365nm), also offered by Intertronics. Intertronics is at hand to offer advice to anyone that is concerned about whether this tool is right for their application.
