As UV LEDs increase in efficiency the applications for UV LED curing solutions are expanding rapidly. This trend is hardly surprising when you take into account the many advantages provided by LEDs over traditional technologies.
Advantages of UV LED Curing Solutions over traditional technologies
UV LED illumination offers significant advantages versus the use of traditional UV lamp technologies including:
- Longer Illuminator Lifetimes
- Stable light output over lifetime
- Safer, Ozone-free output
- Precise Control
- Thermal management keeps heat from the target
- Lower total cost of ownership
Advantages of Chip-on-Board UV LED Solutions
Chip-on-Board (COB) LED technology provides significant advantages over surface mount technology when it comes to UV LED solutions. Due to the small size of the LED chip relative to packaged LEDs, much higher packing densities can be achieved with COB than with surface mount technology. This results in higher output from more compact packages. Chip-on-Board technology also provides greater options in terms of wavelength selection, allowing you to maximize the efficiency of your application.
UV LED Applications
ProPhotonix has designed and manufactured UV curing floodlights for one of the world’s leading manufacturers of adhesives. These compact products are produced in a number of wavelengths and deliver extremely high intensity despite their compact size.
Following a number of successful customer deployments, ProPhotonix has launched the COBRA Cure FX Series, a UV LED Line Light designed specifically for UV Curing of inks, adhesives, and coatings.
