SPECTRONICS: UV Lamp (11/11/09)

November 11, 2009


The 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, including a unique filter and bulb/reflector assembly that enables the lamp’s 35-watt bulb to deliver up to 10 times more UV-A energy than conventional 100-watt curing lamps.  It also eatures instant on operation that further reduces curing time.

The entire lamp, including the ballast, is extremely lightweight, weighing 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.
