UVCS AX-550 LED Conveyor Systems

12 in Wide Curing with BlueWave AX-550 LED Flood Lamps


Available Globally, Except Europe

Dymax UVCS bench-top conveyor systems are designed for fast curing of adhesives, coatings, and inks that react in the UVA and/or visible spectral ranges.  The conveyors can be outfitted with one of three different wavelength BlueWave® AX-550 LED flood lamps (365 nm, 385 nm, 405 nm) and can accommodate up to four emitters.  If two emitters are used, they can be pointed side-by-side or front-to-back for additional process flexibility.  All UVCS conveyors have adjustable belt speeds of 1 to 32 fpm, as well as adjustable lamp-to-belt distance to address a variety of application requirements.  When combined, the UVCS conveyors' consistent intensity, fast curing, and adjustable line speeds create an optimized LED light-curing process that enables high throughput.

UVCS-series conveyors can be outfitted with one, two, or four BlueWave® AX-550 LED flood emitters.  If two emitters are used, they can be either center mounted (CM) or mounted full width (FW).  BlueWave AX-550 LED flood emitters provide high-intensity curing energy over a 5 in x 5 in (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm) curing area.  365 nm, 385 nm, and 405 nm wavelength configurations are available.  The selection of the correct wavelength emitter will depend on the material being used and other application requirements.  BlueWave AX-550 LED flood emitters offer high uniformity when multiple emitters are assembled next to each other, making them ideal for conveyor applications where a consistent cure across the entire substrate is important.

LED vs. Broad-Spectrum Systems

Dymax LED-curing systems using BlueWave® AX-550 emitters offer many advantages over conventional broad-spectrum systems, including:

  • Cooler curing for temperature-sensitive substrates.  Conventional broad-spectrum lamps operate and emit energy at high temperatures, which can damage sensitive substrates or force you to make multiple passes to deliver the curing energy needed for an application.
  • Large 5 in x 5 in curing area.  Most broad-spectrum systems offer a much smaller cure area.  Parts get a higher dosage with our larger cure area but with cooler cures you don't risk damage to your parts.
  • Better uniformity across the cure area ensure more consistent cure results.

 

If you're currently curing one of our LED-optimized adhesives with a broad-spectrum lamp, our BlueWave AX-550 LED flood emitters may also properly cure your adhesive.

Configuring a UVCS Conveyor with BlueWave AX-550 emitters

  1. Choose the part number for the base conveyor configuration – voltage & number of emitters
  2. Select matching BlueWave AX-550 emitters based on the number of heads and the wavelength for the application.
  3. Add in the appropriate number of AX-550 controllers.
