Excelitas Technologies® Corp., Waltham, Massachusetts, has introduced the latest addition to its OmniCure® product line – the OmniCure AC9225-F UV LED Curing System. Ideal for fiber coating or marking applications, the air-cooled OmniCure AC9225-F delivers up to 20 W/cm2 irradiance at a 10-15 mm working distance.
The system features a custom optical design to optimize delivery of UV onto the fiber, thus allowing for efficient curing and faster line speeds with greatly reduced electrical power consumption compared to traditional lamp solutions. The AC9225-F platform shares the same mechanical enclosure as its AC8225-F+ predecessor, while boasting higher output to enable faster process speeds. The ability to leverage existing mechanical enclosures allows customers to easily upgrade to enhance performance and line speeds without complex integration changes. The AC9225-F also includes an optional replaceable window for added robustness and protection from contamination, while allowing for multiple units to be adjoined without compromising uniformity between each curing system.
“The fiber curing industry is fast-paced and is rapidly changing to meet the high output demands of the market,” said Mike Kay, director of product management at Excelitas. “We are excited to offer the new AC9225-F UV LED Curing System as a solution that can help manufacturers achieve faster throughput with operational benefits such as lower power consumption and reduced down time. The AC9225-F’s high output and air-cooled form factor make it easy for customers to integrate and scale to their production process.”
