EXCELITAS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.: UV LED Fiber Curing System
This company recently introduced OmniCure® AC8225-F UV LED fcuring system with a custom optical design for curing fiber optic coatings. AC8225-F is specifically designed for fiber curing applications.
With advanced front-end optics, the system reportedly delivers 12W/cm2 peak irradiance and smooth uniformity at a 10 to 18mm working distance for fast, even curing. By adapting the output to support application requirements, the system can provide optimized performance for this curing process.
Compared with traditional arc lamp systems, the AC8225 system reportedly reduces electricity consumption by up to 60%. With over 40,000 hours of LED lifetime and no replacement parts, maintenance costs are even further reduced.
“Excelitas’ OmniCure UV LED Curing Systems offer many benefits for a wide range of applications, from significantly lower electrical and equipment maintenance costs to increased manufacturing uptime,” said Oliver Scheuss, vice president of solid state lighting and UV/microscopy. “We are pleased to augment our OmniCure line with the new AC8225-F UV LED fiber curing system, which delivers outstanding performance and cost benefits for a superior alternative to conventional UV lamp systems for fiber curing.”
