UV LED embraces many of the advantages of traditional UV curing for manufacturing processes. It offers advanced capabilities beyond traditional UV curing. First is low heat. UV LEDs do not generate any infrared output that is translated into heat. This is extremely important on manufacturing lines where the introduction of heat changes the chemical properties of the adhesive or coating. This heat can lead to material warping, lack of adhesion and eventually scrap. UV LEDs are a ‘cool’ light source; the only heat is due to UV energy being generated.
The second major improvement is process stability. Manufacturing companies need consistent, stable output. This is now possible with UV LED curing. Traditional UV bulbs degraded over time, which meant their UV output was not stable. Manufacturers dealt with this by over-specifying the amount of energy needed, (which could lead to over-cured, brittle adhesives) or by implementing a maintenance schedule to remove bulbs as a precaution. With UV LED, both of these issues are removed, as they will provide stable UV output consistently over time, leading to better process control and stability.
