MATERIALS:DYMAX Corp.’sBlueWave® LED Prime UVA high-intensity spot-curing system offers many advantages over conventional spot-curing systems including no consumable bulbs to change, no warm-up, cool cures and constant intensity for thousands of hours.The BlueWave LED Prime UVA generates curing energy using high-intensity LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and produces nearly double the intensity of any LED spot-curing lamp on the market today. This system delivers maximum curing energy through a 5 mm diameter lightguide, with an output up to 15 W/cm2. While providing more power, the design also eliminates the safety concerns from the high heat generated by units with the LED array at the end of the wand. In addition, the relatively narrow frequency band produced by LEDs generates cooler curing temperatures at the substrate level. The unit is CE certified, RoHS compliant, offers user-friendly operation, and boasts a useful LED life of over 50,000 hours. All of these features make the BlueWave LED Prime UVA the ideal curing system for manufacturers looking to complement their “green” initiatives.
The BlueWave LED Prime UVA also includes an intensity adjustment feature which allows users to adjust and control intensity output from 0 to 100 percent to assist with process validation and control. Intensity level measurement is easily accomplished with a radiometer. The DYMAX ACCU-CALTM 50-LED radiometer is used to take readings through the lightguide in process development and actual production settings, providing the most accurate and consistent method of light-intensity measurement. DYMAX offers single and multi-legged lightguides that are compatible with the BlueWave LED Prime UVA. This spot-curing system is excellent for spot curing of various coatings as well as adhesive bonding of polycarbonate, PVC, PET, metal, glass and many other substrates.
DYMAX Corp. is a leading technology-based company specializing in the formulation, manufacture, and service of advanced assembly adhesives, coatings, epoxies, masking resins and light-curing systems.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
