Dymax Corporation has introduced a new application for its UV light-curing spot and flood-lamp systems that enhance configurations for 3D post-curing applications or help rework the model.
Dymax explaisn that, after a 3D model is built, it may be necessary to supply additional curing energy to the part to ensure that optimised material properties are achieved.
Dymax UV light-curing flood-lamp systems are designed for area curing or for curing multiple assemblies at once. These flood-lamp models use a powerful UV light-curing lamp (up to 225 mW/cm2) for fast curing over a 5″ x 5″ (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm) area. For rework or repair, such as curing drain-hole fills, assembling larger assemblies, or repairing cracked or broken models, the company’s BlueWave 200 3.0 spot-lamp system is the ideal solution. This unit is a high-intensity lamp that emits energy in the UVA and visible portion of the spectrum (300-450 nm) and is ideally suited for either manual or automated processes. It contains an integral shutter which can be actuated by a foot pedal or PLC and a universal power input that allows operation globally and provides consistent performance at any voltage.
