Excelitas Technologies has expanded its OmniCure product line with a higher power UV LED curing system for fibre optic coatings. The new OmniCure AC8225-F+ features a custom optical design that provides high optical performance over longer working distances – a typical requirement for fibre coating processes. With high peak irradiance and efficiency, the system supports increased line speeds and enables customers to realise significant cost savings from reduced electricity consumption.
This compact, air-cooled UV LED curing system can be integrated easily into existing or new production lines, and is ideal for optical fibre coating or marking applications, as well as other applications such as display bonding. The OmniCure AC8225-F+ provides high peak irradiance of up to 16W/cm2 at 10-15mm working distances, as well as superior uniformity for rapid, even curing with greatly reduced power consumption compared to traditional lamp solutions, or other LED products. It also includes an optional replaceable window for added protection, while supporting the ability to adjoin multiple UV LED systems without compromising on optical uniformity between each curing system.
