Spectronics Corp. has introduced the Spectroline Maxima ML- 3500C UV lamp, designed to slash the time needed 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 75,000 µW/cm² at six inches (15 cm) for high-speed curing and greatly increased production.

Features and Performance

The ML-3500C uses Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology, with a proprietary filter and bulb/reflector assembly that enables the 35-watt bulb to deliver up to 10 times more UV-A energy than conventional 100-watt curing lamps, according to Spectronics. Instant-on operation further reduces curing time.

The entire lamp, including the ballast, weighs 6.1 pounds (2.8kg), with an ergonomic design and stay-cool hand grip designed for long periods of use 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, the manufacturer says. The bulb can be replaced in seconds without tools or danger of shock.

The lamp is designed to work even in direct sunlight and is impervious to magnetic fields.

Battery-Operated Option

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