ProPhotonix recently announced the latest extension to its range of UV LED Curing systems with the launch of COBRA Cure Mini, a compact, yet powerful UV LED curing lamp. This innovative platform provides a cost-effective solution for high-speed single and multi-pass printers where installation space is restricted and weight is a concern. This post will highlight the key features of the COBRA Cure Mini and outline potential applications.
Compact, Light Form Factor – No Compromise on Performance
With COBRA Cure Mini, ProPhotonix has utilized its expertise in Chip-on-Board LED array design and mechanical engineering to deliver the optimum solution for applications where space and weight are restricted but higher intensity and dose levels are required. COBRA Cure Mini’s light head measures just 33.4mm x 57mm x 30mm (1.3” x 2.24” x 1.18”), with control electronics housed separately achieving a compact light-head module. Weighing less than 175gm (0.4 lb) the light-head is suitable for compact translation systems, providing ease of installation without any compromise on performance.
Maximized Intensity and Dose
In addition to its compact form factor, COBRA Cure Mini delivers extremely uniform, high-intensity UV light for a reliable cure. It has been designed to deliver maximum intensity and dose offering the high performance of our COBRA Cure FX1 UV lamp in a more compact package. COBRA Cure Mini delivers intensities up to 6W/cm² and a factory set dose of up to 9 J/cm² at 2mm offering users the flexibility to meet weight restrictions and available footprint without any performance trade-off.

In-house Engineering and Manufacturing
ProPhotonix builds the light engine used to power the COBRA Cure FX series in-house and has engineered each step of the design and manufacturing process to ensure that intensity, dose as well as lifetime are maximized in the COBRA Cure Mini.
COBRA Cure Mini offers an ideal solution for UV curing of inks, coatings and adhesives as well as 3D printing applications. In high-speed single and multi-pass printers, COBRA Cure Mini can minimize infrastructure requirements and contribute to system speed and delivering the high performance required by these applications.
