Phoseon Technology recently announced its new FireJet™ and FireEdge™ NIR Explorer near-infrared lamps with features offering technology advances for curable adhesives, 3D printing, and pinning on low migration applications. The near-infrared LED lamps reportedly provide customers with a small form factor, instant on/off, and lower power consumption compared to traditional NIR lamps.

"Phoseon's cutting edge NIR LED systems are ideal for novel NIR curable adhesives and R&D on such applications," said Simon Reissmann, technical marketing engineer. "Further, this technology has shown potential in pinning and improving print quality on water-based and hybrid inks (low migration) in inkjet printing before the final curing stage."

The company reports that the FireJet NIR Explorer offers high power in an air-cooled package. The 20-mm-wide window guarantees that the energy is spread wider for a larger dose and exposure time in high-speed applications.

The FireEdge NIR Explorer is the smaller brother of the FireJet NIR Explorer. It offers roughly 1/5 the output power with a 10-mm-wide rod lens. The small form factor in combination with the more focused rod lens output is ideal to deliver high intensity at 5-10 mm working distance.
