UV Lamp Touts High-Speed Curing of Coatings

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Spectroline Maxima ML-3500C

Spectronics Corp. has introduced a UV curing lamp that purportedly offers up to 10 times the UV-A energy of conventional 100-watt curing lamps.

The Spectroline Maxima ML-3500C UV lamp slashes the time it takes to cure adhesives, coatings, inks, epoxies, resins, printed circuit boards, plastics and other materials, the manufacturer says.

Features and Performance

Designed to provide high-speed curing and increase production, the lamp produces a nominal steady-state UV-A intensity of 75,000 µW/cm² at six inches (15 cm) and features the latest Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology.

A specially designed filter and bulb/reflector assembly enable the 35-watt bulb to deliver significantly more UV-A energy than conventional curing lamps, according to the manufacturer. The ML-3500C produces virtually no hazardous UV-B light, the company says.

The entire lamp, including the ballast, weighs 6.1 pounds (2.8kg) and features “instant on” operation. The ergonomic design and stay-cool hand grip are designed to allow extended use without stress or fatigue.  

The lamp’s bulb/reflector assembly is a single, integral unit with no exposed circuitry; the bulb can be replaced in seconds, the company says.

Battery-Operated Model

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

Spectronics Corp., based in Westbury, NY, manufactures more than 1,000 different UV, UV/Blue and LED products for hundreds of markets and applications.
