DELO Industrial Adhesives has extended its device portfolio by another two curing lamps. A new generation of area lamps with a wavelength of 365 nm is now available. Compared to their previous models, the enhanced DELOLUX 20 / 365 and DELOLUX 202 / 365 LED lamps deliver much higher intensity. On top of that they have improved energy efficiency and a more compact shape.
Both curing lamps are available with an intensity of 1200 mW/cm² as well as with an intensity of 600 mW/cm². The use of very high intensities (1200 mW/cm²) is particularly well suited when a layer of adhesive needs to be cured quickly between two components that are difficult to irradiate, or where the joined materials are located slightly further away from the light source for design reasons. Thanks to their high intensity levels, geometries that are difficult to access can be irradiated. As a consequence, the adhesive can be cured within seconds while retaining a dry surface.
Besides the improvement of the intensity levels, the design of the UV lamps was also developed further. The design is now alike to the 400 nm curing lamps that were unveiled last year and have proven themselves in the industry. The new lamp heads have a light exit area of 100 x 100 mm² and 202 x 49 mm² respectively. They can be integrated in production lines using plug & play, and be arrayed in seamless rows, either longitudinally or transversely. Even on large bonding areas, or down long irradiation lines, this assures homogeneous and reliable curing without any shading between individual lamp heads.
The active, air-cooled curing lamps can be operated with DELOLUX pilot, a base unit with touchscreen that is intuitive to operate and that combines the control and power supply of up to four lamp heads.
