Dymax Launch Edge-Carry Conveyors to Protect Sensitive Components

19 February 2013

Dymax has launched its Edge-Carry series of conveyors; designed to ensure rapid curing of UV and/or visible-light-sensitive adhesives, inks, and coatings where typical belt-transport style conveyors may cause clearance issues or damage to sensitive components.

According to Dymax, parts such as printed circuit boards that are populated on two sides or palletised components are handled expediently. This conveyor series provides seamless transition from upstream and downstream assembly, dispense, and transport systems to save time and improve manufacturing efficiency.

It says Edge-Carry conveyors can be outfitted with a variety of lamp configurations to address application-specific requirements, and they offer consistent cure times and complete shielding from UV light. Configuration options allow flexibility when defining intensity requirements to keep operating costs to a minimum. Standard height clearance is 0.75" across the entire 18" width, which is ideal for low-profile parts such as PCBs, and up to 6" across a 13.75" width, which can be increased to either 8" or 12" with optional risers installed. The width adjusts quickly and easily, saving operator set-up time.
