UV LED curing solutions are a great fit for adhesive bonding applications. Phoseon’s UV LED curing solutions are being utilized for curing adhesives because they offer lower operating costs, enhanced system capabilities due to being a solid-state device, and environmental benefits of safer workplace environment. Adhesives for high-volume industrial processes must maintain process control to meet rigorous end-user demands. UV adhesive curing applications include: electronics, medical, pressure-sensitive films, and many other manufacturing processes.
UV LED curing systems are being rapidly adopted for curing adhesives in factory assembly lines throughout the world. Low operating costs, long lifetime, and low maintenance are just a few of the reasons. Additionally, small electronic components maybe sensitive to heat and UV LED overcomes those issues by being a ‘cool’ light source.
UV adhesive curing for electronics manufacturing is an emerging application as it provides consistent stable output, no ‘hot’ spots, and low heat. UV adhesive curing for touch screens, mobile phones, micro speakers, and hard disk drives provide just a few examples of commercial applications.
Medical applications such as: syringes, catheters, IV delivery systems, endoscopes, hearing aids often utilize UV curing technology. UV LED technology offers many benefits to medical device adhesives such as low heat, instant on/off capability, long lifetime which makes it a versatile solution for thin film, heat sensitive or any research application.
Adhesive curing is utilized for industrial grade bonding for a variety of materials. Industrial processes require products that can work in tough, sometimes harsh manufacturing environments. This curing includes but is not limited to solar panels, wood/plastic coatings, thin films, bottle processing, aviation, automobiles and many others.
