SPECTRONICS CORP.: UV Lamp

August 20, 2008

The super-powerful MAXIMATM ML- 3500C UV lamp slashes the time it takes to cure adhesives, coatings, inks, epoxies, resins, printed circuit boards, plastics and other materials. The lamp produces a nominal steady-state UV-A intensity of 90,000 µW/cm2 at 6 inches (15 cm) for high-speed curing and greatly increased production.

The ML-3500C uses the latest Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology. A unique filter and bulb/reflector assembly enables the lamp’s 35-watt bulb to deliver up to 10 times more UV-A energy than conventional 100-watt curing lamps. It features instant-on operation that further reduces curing time.

The entire lamp, including the ballast, is extremely lightweight - only 6.1 lbs (2.8kg). Its ergonomic design and stay-cool hand grip allow it to be used for long periods without stress or fatigue.

The lamp’s bulb/reflector assembly is a single, integral unit with no exposed circuitry. The ML-3500C produces virtually no hazardous UV-B light, unlike most competitive units. The bulb can be replaced in seconds - without tools or fear of shock.

A battery-operated model - the MAXIMA ML-3500CM - includes a 12-volt, 7 amp/hr rechargeable battery that powers the lamp for two full hours.
