Dymax Corporation has released a new spot-curing system, the BlueWave® 200 version 3.0, which offers the highest intensity and most user-friendly operation in the industry. The automatic, controlled power-up sequence ensures proper lamp operating temperature to minimize scrap, and the unit’s new, smooth, easy-to-clean faceplate design features an improved operator interface for easier setup, programming, and operation.
The large LCD graphic display offers comfortable operator viewing during programming and operation. Unit status and fault mode notification are also easily identified and viewed on this display. Also located on the faceplate is the patented intensity adjustment control. This unique feature is critical for validating appropriate intensity levels and maintaining those levels during production. Users can adjust the unit’s intensity output to accommodate for bulb degradation and other factors that may affect process repeatability and consistency.
This spot-cure system emits energy in the UVA and visible portion of the spectrum (300-450 nm) for curing of light-curable adhesives, coatings, and encapsulants. Ideally suited for either manual or automated processes, the unit contains an integral shutter which can be actuated by a foot pedal or PLC and a universal power input that allows for Global operation and provides consistent performance at any voltage. A wide range of lightguides in various materials and configurations are available for use with this unit, providing application flexibility.
