Phoseon Introduces Near-Infrared LED Lamps

LED-based solutions provider Phoseon Technology, Hillsboro, Oregon, has announced the new FireJet™ and FireEdge™ NIR Explorer Near-infrared lamps with powerful features offering significant technology advances for curable adhesives, 3D printing and pinning on low migration applications. The Near-infrared LED lamps provide customers with a small form factor, instant on/off and lower power consumption over traditional NIR lamps.

Simon Reissmann, technical marketing engineer for Phoseon Technology stated that the company’s cutting edge NIR LED systems are ideal for novel NIR curable adhesives and R&D on such applications. Further this technology has shown potential in pinning and improving print quality on water-based and hybrid inks (low migration) in inkjet printing before the final curing stage.

The FireJet NIR Explorer offers high power in an air-cooled package. The 20-mm-wide window guarantees that the energy is spread wider for a larger dose and exposure time in high-speed applications. The FireEdge NIR Explorer is the smaller brother of the FireJet NIR Explorer. It offers roughly 1/5 the output power with a 10-mm-wide rod lens. The small form factor in combination with the more focused rod lens output is ideal to deliver high intensity at five to 10 mm working distance.

The NIR Explorer systems include cables, power supply, protective cover glass and extended warranty. Products will be available in the second quarter of 2021.
