Phoseon Technology, Integration Technology Ltd. and Lumen Dynamics have joined together to form the UV LED Curing Association. The new association was established to address a growing need within the market for current and potential researchers, suppliers, integrators and end users to gain a better understanding about UV LED technology and the significant benefits it brings to numerous applications.

The new association is focused on providing greater insight into the various UV LED solutions currently in the marketplace, as well as developing suitable applications for the technology. The organization intends to demonstrate how system developers around the world can effectively integrate UV LED technology into applications and, where possible, achieve better efficiencies while saving costs.

The association’s founders say they will work together to help define and establish UV LED-based guidelines for UV LED curing applications. This goal will become increasingly important as the adoption rate of UV LED technology continues to rise and the need for industry collaboration becomes critical. The association will also serve as a forum for fostering communication within the UV industry in order to facilitate the exchange of information and enable the entire industry to better address market needs.

“Phoseon Technology is a proud founder of the UV LED Curing Association,” said Bill Cortelyou, president and CEO of Phoseon Technology. “Along with our fellow founders, Phoseon anticipates rapid growth and acceptance of UV LED curing technologies across a wide range of system manufacturers. The association will bring together industry players to set guidelines and ensure compatibility across the industry.”

“UV LED curing technology has been steadily evolving in the market for almost a decade,” said Adrian Lockwood, managing director of Integration Technology. “Its application successes continue to generate increased interest; however, industry inconsistencies in language and measurement practices, as well as a general misunderstanding of the technology, continue to breed confusion and delay implementation. It is the hope of the UV LED Curing Association’s founders that our collaboration will promote the successful and more rapid adoption of UV LED technology across many different markets.”

“UV LED technology has witnessed a dramatic rise in interest and experienced a corresponding rapid adoption in a variety of markets over the past five years,” said Allan Firhoj, president and CEO of Lumen Dynamics. “We are quite pleased to be collaborating with other major industry influencers to provide a forum for sharing knowledge and developing common meaningful language and guidelines about UV LED technology. In our 15 years of experience in LED curing technology, the industry has realized significant breakthroughs that have proven LEDs as a viable alternative providing substantial benefits. The UV LED Curing Association will be instrumental in helping the market gain knowledge and insight about UV LED technology and its numerous commercial benefits.”
