About DYMAX BlueWave® AX-550 LED UV Curing Flood Lamp

The Dymax BlueWave AX-550 is a powerful LED UV curing flood lamp that combines a UV light emitter, controller and power supply into a compact, all-in-one design. It is used for the rapid curing of UV curing adhesives and materials, using high intensity UV light from LEDs. Eliminating the need for a large, traditional-style separate controller, this unit has a greatly reduced footprint and is easily integrated into automation or conveyor systems. The system is modular, and the emitters can be readily replaced to switch to another curing wavelength or upgraded. The Dymax BlueWave AX-550 curing system features an easy-to-navigate user interface with a push-button control.

LED Light-Curing Technology
Dymax LED UV curing systems generate curing energy using high-intensity LEDs in lieu of conventional arc lamp technology. The relatively narrow frequency band of energy emitted by LEDs results in cooler curing environments and substrate temperatures compared to traditional UV-style lamp systems, making them ideal for curing thermally sensitive materials. Dymax LED UV curing systems offer many energy and cost-saving benefits, such as no warm-up period, lower energy consumption, no bulbs to change, and more consistent frequency and intensity output for better process control.

Features & Benefits

  • Based on LED technology, so consistent output, no bulbs to replace and no warm-up time
  • Cure area 125mm x 125mm
  • Intensities ranging from 300-800 mW/cm2 depending on wavelength
  • Three wavelengths available: 365, 385, and 405 nm
  • Intuitive, menu-driven programming and operation
  • Provides system status and troubleshooting
  • Allows for control and monitoring of power levels, exposure times/routines, and system health and safety lockout via PLC interface
  • Modular design enables replacement of emitter with different wavelength for optimisation of cure
  • Units can be password protected to limit access to only authorised users
  • Direct-to-frame pre-drilled holes for stability and easy mounting
  • Optional lightshield available for complete UV protection when used as a benchtop system
