UV-LED Curing Systems by Honle
As a recognized leader in UV curing technology, Honle UV offers a broad range of UV-LED lamps for curing adhesives and sealants. Light footprint options range from 0.5mm diameter spot units to linear 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, 385, 395, 405, and 460 nanometers.
Typical service life of the LED array is 10,000 hours, after which it can be replaced with a new array. 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-cure adhesives and sealants from Panacol-USA.
A large variety of cutting edge UV-LED lamps from Honle are available at 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.
The different spectra of LEDs ensure safe and fast curing. Honle provides different wavelengths which are perfectly matched to the photoinitiators used in the Panacol uv adhesives.
As LEDs do not require a warm-up phase, LED heads can be switched on and off without any problems: they are 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).
