UV-LED Curing Systems by Honle
As a recognized leader in UV/LED curable adhesives and coatings, Panacol-USA also offers a broad range of UV-LED curing systems for curing adhesives and sealants. Light footprint options range from 5 mm diameter spot units to linear LED arrays that can exceed one meter in length. With Honle UV-LED lamps, you have the option of selecting the curing wavelength most suitable to the adhesive or sealant being cured. LED output options include 365, 395, 405, and 460 nanometers.
Typical service life of the LED array is 20,000 hours. LED curing requires no warm-up or cool-down periods during operation, providing instant on/off process control.
Honle LED curing equipment offers unique features that include intensity output control, multi-cycle programmability, RS232 interface for external programming and operation, and menus that can be displayed in four languages. Most Honle power supplies will drive multiple LED heads that can be programmed for sequential or independent actuation.
For maximum efficiency and shortest curing cycle, pair Honle LED curing systems with LED-curable adhesives and sealants from Panacol-USA.
Advantages of LED technology
LED light sources possess a monochromatic light spectrum and do not emit IR radiation. They are highly energy efficient and curing occurs at cooler temperatures than with conventional gas discharge lamps. This makes LED equipment ideally suited for use with temperature sensitive substrates.
Honle provides LED curing systems in several wavelengths, which can be perfectly matched to the photoinitiators used in the Panacol uv adhesives. The different spectra of LEDs ensure safe and fast curing.
As LEDs do not require a warm-up phase, LED heads can be switched on and off without any problems: they are always ready for immediate operation. LEDs have a long operating life: The typical service life of a LED is longer than 20,000 hours (typical lifetime under specified operating conditions).
