Advantages of LED systems
UV LED curing systems offer vastly improved lifetimes over traditional technologies with the COBRA Cure FX2 offering a lifetime of 20,000 hours versus 1,500 hours for traditional technologies, resulting in significantly reduced maintenance costs. The efficiency of LED systems also results in energy savings, and with having no ozone emissions or mercury content, offer a more sustainable solution. In addition, the “cold cure” offered by LED systems is ideal for heat sensitive substrates.
The COBRA Cure FX2 offers all of the above benefits plus it incorporates a field replaceable window. This innovative feature, designed to ensure the system delivers consistent output, is easy to use, requires no special tools for window replacement, thus minimizing system downtime. In addition the COBRA Cure FX2’s compact design offers edge to edge illumination making the system truly scalable without any drop in intensity at the edges. Available options include a number of optical configurations, four wavelengths, as well as multi-wavelength options.
