BlueWave® AX-550 LED Curing System

All-in-One, High-Intensity System for Quiet, Efficient LED Curing

CE Marked – Available Globally

The BlueWave® AX-550 is an LED-curing system that combines a controller, emitter, and power supply into a compact, all-in-one design. Eliminating the need for a large, traditional-style controller, this unit has a greatly reduced footprint and is easily integrated into Dymax and other conveyor systems. The emitters are detachable, and the system is field-upgradable by customers so they can switch to another wavelength or upgrade to a more powerful emitter as improved LED die become available.

The AX-550 curing system also features an easy-to-navigate user interface with push-button controls. Units can be password protected to limit access to only authorized users and protect process parameters.

Systems Features & Benefits

Field Upgradable Emitters

  • Enable quick change out of emitters for optimization of application-specific frequency emissions without the need to purchase additional controllers or return or upgrade the entire unit
  • Existing units can be quickly upgraded as new emitter frequency and higher power level models become available
  • Provide flexibility to meet changing application requirements

Standard SD Card Access Port

  • User firmware upgrades can be completed without the need to return the units
  • Allows for quick upgrade to latest performance parameters and firmware

Improved User Interface with Rotary Push-Button Control

  • Simple, easy-to-navigate controls
  • Provides system status and troubleshooting
  • Intuitive, menu-driven programming and operation

Easily Incorporate into Automated Systems
Machine Mountable

  • Direct-to-frame pre-drilled holes for stability and easy mounting

PLC Activation and Control

  • Similar to BlueWave® MX Series for user continuity
  • Allows for control and monitoring of power levels, exposure times/routines, and system health and safety lockout via PLC interface

LED Light-Curing Technology
Dymax LED curing systems generate curing energy using high-intensity LEDs in lieu of conventional arc lamp technology. The relatively narrow frequency band of energy emitted by LEDs results in cooler curing environments and substrate temperatures compared to traditional UV-style lamp systems, making them ideal for curing thermally sensitive materials. Dymax LED-curing systems offer many energy and cost-saving benefits, such as no warm-up period, lower energy consumption, no bulbs to change, and more consistent frequency and intensity output for better process control.
