Dymax has launched the BlueWave 200 3.0 high intensity spot curing system. The enhanced UV spot curing lamp is for UVA/visible light cure of adhesives and coatings in the electronics, medical device, opto-electronics and technology manufacturing industries.
Building on the 17,000 mW/cm2 light intensity (at 300-450nm), Dymax has added an automatic power-on sequence which ensures full light output before the unit can be used, preventing partial cures in early throughput. The BlueWave 200 3.0 is fully capable for either manual or automatic processes. It contains an integral shutter which can be actuated by a foot pedal, from the front panel, or from PLC/automation, and a universal power input that provides consistent performance at any voltage.
The unit features a patented intensity adjustment control. This is important for validating an appropriate intensity range and maintaining that range during production. This enables scheduled light intensity correction to be made throughout the anticipated 2,000 hour useful bulb life, ensuring optimum output.
