About Dymax BlueWave® MX-275 High Intensity LED UV Curing System
The Dymax BlueWave® MX-275 LED UV flood curing system provides a high intensity, 5mm x 50mm line pattern output. An MX-275 LED UV curing system comprises two main parts: a controller with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface and a uniquely designed, high-intensity LED emitter, offering better uniformity and more consistent curing-energy emissions than traditional UV curing systems. Curing energy is created using a micro-processor-controlled LED chip set in the emitter.
The system’s optional multi-channel controller can be paired with multiple emitters, allowing them to be grouped together to create larger curing pattern matrices as needed.
With this new design, the LED UV flood curing system can be truly tailored to your curing needs – allowing you to choose from three different wavelength LED emitters (365, 385, or 405 nm) and providing additional flexibility with the size and pattern of the active curing area. This system can be set up as a bench-top unit, or for automated curing processes, the emitter can be easily mounted to robotic arms or further from the controller without fear of intensity losses.
Admin and Production Modes
Admin mode fully unlocks the device and allows for setting curing time and intensity cycles. Each individual curing cycle can be entered and saved as a program, and recalled when needed. The production mode is designed for simple operation by manufacturing personnel. Settings and access to admin mode can be password protected using the full QWERTY keyboard.
Features & Benefits
- High intensity for quick curing of a variety of materials
- Very high uniformity across entire cure area for consistent dosage, minimising variation in bond line cure characteristics
- Ability to cure small batches of parts under cure area simultaneously and to group emitters together for large curing patterns
- Available in 365, 385, or 405 nm wavelengths for optimal cure results
- Production Mode for simple on/off operation
- Curing programs can be saved and easily recalled
- Units can be password protected so only Production Mode can be accessed by workers
- Touch screen with full keyboard
- Instant on-off means no warm-up period and greater energy efficiency
- Comfortable hand-held operating temperature
- Temperature monitoring assures maximum LED life
- LED chip located in the emitter, rather than the controller, provides consistent intensity and eliminates potential intensity loss from long or bent lightguides
- Easily incorporated into automated systems with PLC interface
- Emitter can be mounted closer to application, while the controller remains close to the operator

The Dymax BlueWave® MX-Series Multi-Channel Controller, when combined with up to four MX-Series LED UV curing emitters, provides manufacturers with curing flexibility in a smaller, more efficient design with an easy to use touchscreen interface.
The Multi-Channel Controller is compatible with all of the BlueWave MX-Series emitters. The emitters are available in three cure pattern formats: Spot (MX-150), Mini-Flood (MX-250) and Line (MX-275), and different wavelengths including 365, 385, or 405 nm. Emitters of different cure patterns and/or wavelengths can be mixed and matched with a single Multi-Channel Controller. This flexibility helps to achieve optimal cures across a variety of bond-line geometries and fluid product offerings.
Users also have greater set up flexibility; for automated curing processes, the emitter can be mounted to robotic arms or further from the controller without fear of intensity variations. When used as a benchtop curing system, the unit can be paired with a stand and shielding for large area curing. It can also be used with multiple pathway lightguides for specialised applications when paired with MX spot emitters.
MX-Series Multi-Channel Controllers are available in two model variants: a two-channel that is capable of independently controlling up to two emitters and a four channel for up to four emitters.
Multi-Channel Controller Features and Benefits
- Reduces equipment footprint and cost by reducing the number of controllers required
- Compatible with all MX-Series LED UV curing emitters; users can easily switch between spot, flood and line curing configurations
- All Bluewave® MX-series emitters available in 365, 385 and 405nm versions
- Simple on/off operation with no warm-up period
- Application specific curing profiles/programs can be easily entered, stored, and recalled when needed
- Units can be password protected so only production mode can be accessed by workers
- LED temperature management and system monitoring for maximised continuous operation without overheating
- Easily incorporated into automated systems with remote I/O interface
