October 12, 2011
Spectronics Corporation has introduced the Maxima ML-3500C UV lamp designed to cut the time it takes to cure adhesives, coatings, inks, epoxies, resins, printed circuit boards, plastics and other materials. The lamp produces a nominal steady-state UV-A intensity of 75,000 µW/cm² at 6 inches (15 cm) for high-speed curing and increased production, the company said. The ML-3500C uses the latest Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology. A filter and bulb/reflector assembly enables the lamp’s 35-watt bulb to deliver up to 10 times more UV-A energy than conventional 100-watt curing lamps, the company said.
