BlueWave® LED DX-1000

Small-Area Flood and Spot LED UV Light-Curing System
CE Marked - Available Globally

The Dymax BlueWave® LED DX-1000 is a unique and flexible 385 nm LED curing system that can be configured to operate as either a small-area flood or spot-cure system. In flood mode, up to 1 W/cm2 can be delivered over a 1" x 1.5" [2.54 cm x 3.81 cm] area. In spot mode, a single- or multi-pole lightguide can be installed into an optional adapter to deliver up to 15 W/cm2 in a high-intensity spot. The BlueWave LED DX-1000 provides all the benefits of Dymax's advanced LED-curing technology in a system that can adapt to meet your changing business needs.
