UV LAMP AND LED TECHNOLOGY

Integration Technology offers three ranges of standard light sources, which can be sold stand alone or as part of a fully integrated modular system.

 

What is UV Curing

UV curing (ultraviolet curing) is a photopolymerization process in which ultraviolet light is used to initiate a photochemical reaction to change the state of a chemistry by creating a crosslinked network of polymers. UV curing is becoming fundamental in applications where there is a need for converting (curing) inks, adhesives and coatings.

 

Historically, Mercury lamps have been the standard way of generating a high intensity source of UV light to effect this cure, however UV LED curing systems are fast becoming a technology of choice across a wide range of applications from wide-format inkjet to 3D printing, and from visual embellishment to functional coatings, and from structural to pressure sensitive adhesives. Some Industries that take advantage of UV curing include medical equipment, automobiles, cables, cosmetics (for example artificial fingernails and gel nail polish), food, science, education and art.

 

In comparison to other traditional technologies, curing with UV energy offers faster production speeds, reduced maintenance costs, significant energy savings, and UV LED additionally offers the benefits of  the “cold cure” effect  which means it is ideal for thin film or heat-sensitive substrates and even opens up some processes that were not possible before.

 

UV LED curing has zero ozone emissions, no mercury content, even lower energy costs, vastly improved lifetimes and is a more sustainable solution.
