Dymax's next-generation curing system, the BlueWave® MX-250, provides manufacturers with the curing flexibility of past systems but with new expansion capabilities. The unit is comprised of two main parts, a controller with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface and a uniquely designed, high-intensity LED emitter, offering better uniformity and more consistent curing-energy emissions than traditional flood-curing systems. Curing energy is created using a micro-processor-controlled LED chip set in the emitter. The emitter delivers a 50 mm x 50 mm active curing area but the system's controller can be paired with multiple emitters, allowing them to be grouped together to create larger curing pattern matrixes as needed.
With this new design, the system can be truly tailored to users' curing needs - allowing them to choose from three different wavelength LED emitters (365, 385, or 405 nm) and providing additional flexibility with the size and pattern of the active curing area. Users also have endless set up flexibility, as this system can be set up as a bench-top unit, or for automated curing processes, the emitter can be easily mounted to robotic arms or further from the controller without fear of intensity losses.

Admin and Production Modes
Admin mode fully unlocks the device and allows for setting curing time and intensity cycles. Each individual curing cycle can be entered and saved as a program, and recalled when needed. The production mode is designed for simple operation by manufacturing personnel. Settings and access to admin mode can be password protected using the full QWERTY keyboard.
