Phoseon Technology, which develops UV LED arrays, has announced a new FireLine FL440 LED curing solution that’s said to offer 80 percent more UV power.
To achieve this power output Phoseon increased the output window width to 40mm and increased the number of LEDs. This gives a longer exposure time and greater dose to fully cure in single pass applications. It is now available in lengths ranging from 125mm to 300mm.
This new array is part of the FireLine family of water-cooled UV LED curing lamps with uses in a wide variety of digital inkjet and web/conveyor-based UV curing applications. The FireLine architecture is designed to allow the scalable systems to be built to custom lengths.
Joe Becker, product marketing manager at Phoseon Technology, comments: “The FL440 compliments the FireLine product line by offering a product with unmatched total UV energy. The more powerful FireLine FL440 offers customers a scalable, IP54 compliant solution with higher performance for jobs requiring maximum UV output.”
Phoseon’s LED offerings come in two main flavours, air-cooled and water-cooled. Air-cooled systems are simpler to integrate, easily scaleable and do not require external cooling systems and therefore have low operating costs. are designed to be versatile and can be used for high performance curing, pinning, and small area curing. Water-cooled systems, on the other hand, have smaller form factor and usually higher peak irradiance. They are designed to be rugged and reliable for use in the toughest customer environments. Both system-types are based on Phoseon’s patented Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM) technology with proprietary LED cooling.
