The new DYMAX UVCS SideCure™ conveyor system is designed for UV curing of the company’s adhesives and coatings from the left, right, and/or top.
The new DYMAX UVCS SideCure™ conveyor system is designed for UV curing of the company’s adhesives and coatings from the left, right, and/or top. The system can be outfitted with up to eight DYMAX 5000-EC UV curing flood lamps. The conveyor’s 12-in.-wide belt and 7.5-in. vertical clearance, with 5-in. high side-curing capability, allows for the curing of large parts. In addition, the relatively small conveyor size – 51 x 30 x 21.5 in. – minimizes the footprint required for UV curing. According to the company, the use of the new conveyor system can often eliminate potential “shadowed areas” around components that are detrimental to a light curing process.
The high-intensity DYMAX 5000-EC lamps used with the system provide 225 mW/cm2 of intensity for fast UV curing as well as complete shielding from UV light and consistent exposure times. The conveyor can be outfitted with up to four 5000-EC lamps on top and up to four 5000-EC lamps on the sides. When 5000-EC lamps are configured in series, the conveyor belt speeds can often be doubled.
The conveyor system can be used for bonding, masking and coating applications in the medical, electronic, industrial, and aerospace industries where 180° UV curing is required.
