Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) has said that all new LED UV systems will use its XT8 boost technology as standard. This is said to increase the UV power by up to 30 percent while using less power to run the LED chips.
The obvious benefit is that the system reaches an extremely high output and dose which greatly increases cure speeds.
In addition, the chips should last longer since they are not being driven as hard when compared to other products on the market.
The XT8 booster can be used with systems fitted with 365, 385, 395 or 405nm or for systems with mixed wavelength arrays which ITL first introduced in 2010. It come with a five year warranty on each LED module and can be retro-fitted into most existing models of ITL products.
Jason Smith, ITL’s chief technical officer, explains: “We are achieving an increase in UV output more than 50% greater than one year ago without any increase to the electrical input current to the chips which in turn has reduced the cooling requirements of high intensity products and will enable us to produce the highest output LED systems currently in the market place.”
