Description

The Dymax BlueWave 200 UV curing spot lamp offers very high intensity and simple operation – the most versatile, user-friendly and reliable UV spot curing lamp available.

The BlueWave 200 is a high intensity, light curing spot lamp system. This spot curing lamp emits energy in the UVA and visible portion of the spectrum (300-450 nm) for light curing of adhesives, coatings, and encapsulants. Ideally suited for either manual or automated processes, the unit contains an integral shutter which can be actuated by a foot pedal, from the front panel, or from PLC/automation and a universal power input that provides consistent performance at any voltage. A wide range of lightguides in various materials and configurations is available for use with this unit, providing application flexibility.

The new faceplate design features an improved operator interface with an easy-to-read LCD display, which is suitable for use in cleanrooms. The unit also features a patented intensity adjustment control. This feature is important for validating an appropriate intensity range and maintaining that range during production. Intensity measurement is easily accomplished with the Dymax ACCU-CAL™ 50 radiometer. Scheduled intensity measurements taken during the production process will indicate whether additional intensity adjustments are required. This method of measurement provides the most accurate readings as they are taken through the lightguide in the actual production setting.

Control & Intensity Adjustment
Validation of a UV curing process identifies a minimum acceptable intensity range which ensures complete cure in an acceptable cycle time. Users can choose to operate at full intensity (intensity adjusted to 100%) or maintain a constant intensity (at some lower level) through periodic manual adjustments. The average BlueWave 200 bulb will typically degrade <1% per eight hours of normal use. The good manufacturing practice of routine intensity measurement with a calibrated radiometer will determine when and if any adjustments are required.
