OEM’s around the globe are harnessing the power of UV drying lamps, and are realizing an improvement in process with quality and cycle time, in addition to valuable cost savings with improved efficiency. There are many industries using UV drying lamps in various industrial production processes worldwide.
UV drying lamps are effective with a very quick drying time when compared to heat drying systems, for curing polymers, inks, varnishes and coatings. Because UV lamps have such a quick drying time, they produce a more consistent hardened finish with much less shrinkage over heat systems.
This results in a higher level of quality for your products, providing countless benefits with satisfied customers, improved sales and increased customers.
In addition to an improved quality standard, UV drying lamps also provide a significant cost savings over heat or chemical drying methods. The quick cycle time means more efficient production and higher capacity levels. Less maintenance, less replacement costs, and a faster cycle time all equate to higher profits for you.
UV Drying Lamps Aid Automotive Industry
Many industrial processes are realizing the benefits of harnessing UV power for quick and effective curing of their parts. The automotive industry sees a quick return on investment when using UV drying lamps to quickly dry outer coatings of polymers or inks, varnishes, and lacquers on either exterior or interior parts.
Faster Cycle Times
UV curing is a huge timesaver, as several parts can be cured at once, speeding up assembly lines. With a quick drying time of seconds, they can be touched, handled and packaged in a faster amount of time. Faster cycle times equal more profitable production runs.
This hardened surface not only dries quickly, it is also stronger and more resistant to breaking, warping or chipping. This is important for parts in critical applications such as braking or air-bag systems.
