BlueWave LED Flood-Curing System

Higher Intensity & Uniform LED Light Curing for Better Process Efficiency


CE Marked – Available Globally

The BlueWave® LED Flood-Curing System offers high-intensity curing energy over a 5 in x 5 in (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm) area. Cure times in the 5-30 second range are typical when using Dymax light-curable materials. The unit is simple to operate and can be used as a stand-alone system or easily integrated into automated assembly systems.

The BlueWave® Flood-Curing System is available in three different irradiator wavelength array configurations (365, 385, and 405 nm). This enables users to fully optimize the curing process between their light-curable material and UV curing chamber. Get 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.

The BlueWave® LED Flood-Curing System as Compared to Other Units
When compared to competitor models, the BlueWave® LED Flood-Curing System offers greater intensity, a larger active area, better uniformity, and improved short-term degradation, all helping to bring you shorter cure times and more efficient cures. The table below illustrates how this system compares to other LED flood lamps on the market.

Higher Intensity & Uniformity
When compared to other units, this flood-curing system provides much higher intensity and more overall uniformity across the active area. These benefits allow shorter cure times, and in turn, faster manufacturing throughput.
