The Dymax Edge-Carry series of conveyors is designed for efficient curing of UV and/or visible light-sensitive adhesives, inks, and coatings. These conveyors can be outfitted with a variety of lamp configurations to address a variety of application specific requirements. They offer complete shielding from UV light and consistent cure times. 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 inches across a 13.75" width, which can be increased to either 8" or 12" with optional risers installed.

Choosing the Right Lamp(s) for Your Edge-Carry Conveyor
Edge-Carry series conveyors can be outfitted with Dymax 5000-EC, 2000-EC, and 1200-EC lamps, or Fusion F300 lamps. Edge-Carry lamps are sold separately.
These lamps provide moderate intensity (~200 mW/cm2) over a 6" x 6" (approximate) curing area. Their 400-Watt auto-switching power supplies accept 90 to 264 Volts AC and 47 to 63 Hz. With normal use, 5000-EC bulbs will retain 90% of their original intensity after 1,000 hours. 5000-EC lamps are recommended for small-to-medium throughput bonding applications. For faster or more tack-free cures, Fusion F300 lamps are recommended.
