BlueWave® LED Flood System

Higher Intensity and Uniformity for Better Process Efficiency


The BlueWave® LED Flood System offers high-intensity curing energy over a 5" x 5" (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm) area. Cure times in the 5-30 second range are typical when using Dymax light-curable materials. This unit is simple to operate and can be used as a stand-alone system or easily integrated into automated assembly systems. Dymax offers the BlueWave® Flood System in three different irradiator wavelength array configurations (365, 385, and 405 nm) so users can fully optimize the curing process between their light-curable material and the curing system. The BlueWave® LED Flood System offers all the benefits of LED light-curing technology including more consistent intensity, less energy consumption, a shutter-free design, instant on/off, and cooler curing temperatures. Standard systems include one array, a power supply, and appropriate power and interface cords. Optional accessories such as shields and stands are available and sold separately.

Higher Intensity & Uniformity

When compared to other units, the BlueWave® LED Flood provides much higher intensity and more overall uniformity across the active area. These benefits allow shorter cure times, and in turn, faster manufacturing thoughput. See how the BlueWave® LED Flood compares to other units in the charts below.
