Dymax Corporation has launched a new WIDECURE conveyor system designed to offer consistent, fast, and safe curing.
Equipped with a 25”-wide belt, Dymax says this system is ideal for curing light-curable materials on larger parts or larger quantities of smaller parts.
Designed to help manufacturers build a more reliable cure process, Dymax explains that the conveyor can be outfitted with either a longwave (metal halide, UVA/Visible) or shortwave (mercury, UVB/UVC) bulb and delivers over 4 J/cm2 of curing energy at 5 ft/min. It claims that sers can easily control various curing parameters through a touch-screen control panel, achieving greater curing flexibility tailored to their specific application. In addition, the system’s tightly controlled belt speed and minimal bulb degradation further allow better control over cure.
