Lighting up your curing process
Our UV lamps are manufactured for an extensive range of medium-pressure mercury arc lamps suitable for all known UV curing systems. Offering outstanding performance, the lamps provide exceptionally good service life and consistent UV output. UV curing lamps are used worldwide for curing inks and coatings in the printing, packaging, and labeling industries as well as in a wide range of industrial applications, including fiber optic cable production, wood products, and electronics.
All our UV curing lamps are manufactured from high-clarity vitreous silica, commonly called quartz. Quartz has the property of high transparency to ultraviolet light, particularly at the shortwave end of the spectrum where more than 90% of the UV energy generated is transmitted through the quartz. The electrode components are manufactured using the highest-quality materials, ensuring long and reliable lamp life.
Our manufacturer’s Quality Standard not only ensures that each lamp is manufactured to the most stringent specifications, but also that lamp performance is consistent over time.
Metal Halide Lamps
In addition to a broad range of medium-pressure mercury arc lamps, we also import a series of spectrally enhanced metal halide versions.
Metal halide lamps are mercury vapor lamps with metal halide additives that create specific wavelengths of ultraviolet radiation to precision-match the photo-initiator being cured. The addition of metal halides shifts the spectral output of a standard lamp, producing longer wavelengths. These longer wavelengths provide a greater depth of cure, making them particularly useful in curing pigmented and thicker coatings.
Metal halide lamps increasingly are used in the printing industry as well as in a wide variety of industrial applications, such as the production of printed circuit boards, electronic components, fiber optic cables, CDs, DVDs, and wood products.
Microwave Lamps and Bulbs
Electrode-less bulbs are designed and manufactured as direct replacement lamps, and to meet the specific needs of original equipment manufacturers worldwide.
In addition to an extensive range of electrode arc lamps, we offer electrode-less microwave bulbs for use in industries such as fiber optic coating, electronics, compact disc and DVD manufacture, plastic container decorating, liquid finishing, two-piece can manufacture, graphic arts, and general industrial applications.
The standard bulb has a mercury/gas fill. However, as with our electrode lamps, the spectral distribution can be modified by adding specific metal halides.
Metal halide lamps are mercury vapor lamps with metal halide additives that create specific wavelengths of ultraviolet radiation to precisely match the photo-initiator being cured. The addition of metal halides creates a shift in the lamp’s spectral output, producing longer wavelengths. These longer wavelengths enable greater depth of cure, making them particularly useful for curing pigmented and thicker coatings.
The electrodeless microwave bulbs are manufactured from high-clarity vitreous silica, commonly called quartz. Quartz is highly transparent to ultraviolet light, particularly at the short-wave end of the spectrum where it transmits more than 90% of the lamp’s UV energy.
We offer an extensive range of Label Curing lamps. From our comprehensive variety, we can provide lamps suitable for most systems including Gallus, GEW, Ko-Pack, Mark Andy, Nilpeter, and Sanjo.
In addition, we can design a lamp to meet a customer’s specific requirements.
Although the most popular lamp types have traditionally been mercury, we have an increasingly wide range of metal halide versions that have been developed in line with the trend toward using a varied spectrum of UV-curable coatings and inks in the label printing process. The addition of metal halides creates a shift in the spectral output of a standard lamp, producing longer wavelengths. These longer wavelengths enable a greater depth of cure to be achieved, making them particularly useful in the curing of pigmented and thicker coatings.
The label-curing lamps are hand-crafted from the finest materials available. Each piece of quartz is monitored for size and specification from the first stage of manufacture through to testing and packing. Components are manufactured using the highest-quality materials, ensuring long and reliable lamp life.
In addition to manufacturing an extensive range of ultraviolet curing lamps, we also produce and supply high-quality replacement quartz cooling tubes for both water-cooled and air-cooled systems.
Cooling tubes are designed to filter out infrared radiation and are mounted between the UV lamp and the substrate. Using cooling tubes on lamp heads for drying ink between the application of different colors offers a major advantage: minimal heat on the substrate will minimize registration difficulties. And filtering out IR radiation also ensures that the machine never gets too hot.
The use of cooling tubes is particularly valuable when printing on heat-sensitive and lightweight substrates such as plastic, foil, and film. Requiring minimal maintenance, cooling tubes need only to be kept clean to maximize their performance.
Keeping the tubes clean is straightforward, as there is normally no air extraction over the tubes to introduce contamination. The tubes can be maintained in peak condition by occasionally cleaning them with a soft cotton cloth moistened with isopropanol. In order to maintain the purity of the tubes, only deionized water should be used in water-filtered systems.
We sell lamps for Singulus, Fusion, Cefla, IST, Giardina, MAN Roland, Comco, Gallus, GEW, Ko-Pack, Mark Andy, KBA, Zund, Nilpeter, Sanjo machines, and many others.
Our lamps are produced with arc lengths from 2cm to 4m and with up to 500 W/cm.
We ship directly to your factory. Orders usually arrive within 10-15 working days. We can ship lamps for rush orders within five working days.
