LED Curing Technology
From our LED Technology Lab, our team of engineers develop Curing Solutions for MedTech manufacturing. We have a production-ready solution flexible to your needs.
What is LED Curing?
LED Curing is the process by which Light Emitting Diodes are used to cure materials such as adhesives, coatings, and inks. The LED Light initiates the curing process by starting a photochemical reaction which causes the linking of polymers in the material to be cured.
LED Curing has some similarities to traditional Fluorescent Light curing. However, fluorescent light bulbs emit a broad range of light wavelength, an LED can be selected to suit the precise wavelength that best suits material to be cured. LED technology provides some significant advantages which include:
- Specific wavelength
- Greater uniformity of light throughout the cure tunnel
- Automatic fault detection
- Energy efficiency
- Environmentally friendly
Our Experience in LED Curing
After extensive research and development in our LED Technology Lab, we have designed and built our own LED Tube Technology, currently being used by blue-chip manufacturers in the medical device sector.
The testing and development of our LED technology involved the continuous operation of the LED tubes 24 hours a day, 7 days a week over the course of 3 years in a replicated automated production environment. Even operating inside a controlled high-temperature environment resulted in no deterioration of LED performance.
Advantages of Our LED Curing Technology
Low Cost of Ownership
Our LED Curing Technology is highly efficient offering vastly improved lifetimes with a minimum life expectancy of 5 years, reduced maintenance costs and significant energy savings.
Reliable Performance in High-Temperature Environments
After extensive testing and development, our LED Technology is proven to operate in high-temperature environments.
A Safe, Clean, Environmentally Friendly Solution
Traditional Fluorescent UV bulbs used in Curing processes contain mercury, which is toxic to people and the environment, and is costly to dispose of. Our LED technology is a safer, sustainable alternative, using less energy and producing less heat, while offering higher performance.
A Smart, Intelligent Solution
Our LED technology enable intelligent feedback and fault detection capability.
The solution is integration friendly and can connect to modern production equipment over a variety of BUS type networks such as Ethernet & Profibus.
