Excelitas Launches OmniCure AC5 Series UV LED Curing System

Excelitas Technologies Corp of Waltham, MA, USA, which provides customized photonic solutions to OEMs, has launched its OmniCure AC5 Series UV LED systems for small-area curing. Designed with a combination of high-output LEDs and custom optics, the OmniCure AC550/P and OmniCure AC575/P air-cooled UV LED curing systems provide high irradiance (14W/cm2), enabling manufacturers to achieve high productivity while the long lifetime and lower electrical consumption of the LEDs reduce running costs.

Excelitas says the OmniCure AC5 Series LED systems provide a reliable UV light source for curing inks, adhesives and coatings in industrial and electronics manufacturing applications, and printing applications such as labels, bar coding and package printing. Featuring high-irradiance LED technology, they can cure adhesives at a low temperature, which is needed for sensitive components used in medical device and electronics manufacturing.

The AC550/P and AC575/P provide 60% higher output compared with the OmniCure AC4 Series with similar benefits, including consistent and even curing with what is claimed to be excellent uniformity across the full LED area. The curing systems can be integrated into any workstation with no additional venting, ozone extraction or chillers required, and can be automated for increased productivity. Using highly efficient LED modules, both AC4 and AC5 Series systems feature narrow LED wavelength output and lower-temperature curing compared to arc lamp systems for reduced power consumption and increased yields, says the firm.

The AC5 /AC5P high-power, air-cooled UV LED curing systems provide high irradiance and optical performance enabling fast line speeds in both industrial manufacturing and printing. The print versions are equipped with a replaceable outer winder required for printing applications at close working distances, or with custom lenses to provide the highest irradiance at flexible working distances for specific applications. The systems are a suitable solution for rapid small- to medium-sized surface area curing, concludes Excelitas.
