New ACCU-CAL 160 Radiometer Helps Ensure Consistent Production Quality

Dymax Corporation offers ACCU-CAL 160, a new radiometer which it says simplifies validation and monitoring of UV or LED light-curing up to 10W/cm2 emitted from stationary light-curing flood lamps or lamps used in conveyorised processes.

Dymax explains that the radiometer provides a quantifiable measurement that verifies if the light-curing process is operating within qualified parameters, to reveal the optimal time for bulb replacement for a UV-light curing device.

According to Dymax, priced on par with the old ACCU-CAL 150, the new ACCU-CAL 160 has a longer calibration cycle of 12 months instead of six and is calibrated by Dymax facilities in the US, Europe, and Asia. Unlike the older version, the orientation of the unit does not affect performance and it has an easier to read graphical display.

Radiometers establish process parameters and, when maintained, help ensure consistent production quality resulting in reduced scrap and increased throughput.
