BlueWave® MX-150 LED Spot-Curing System

High-Intensity Curing System with the Flexibility of Multiple Systems
CE Marked - Available Globally

 

The BlueWave® MX-150™ curing system provides manufacturers with the curing flexibility they need, in a smaller, more efficient design. The unit is comprised of two main parts, a controller with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface and a high-intensity LED emitter which is uniquely designed to offer higher, more consistent curing intensity than traditional spot-curing systems. Curing energy is created using an LED chip in the emitter, unlike traditional spot-cure systems, where it is located in the controller. Locating the LED chip at the point-of-cure provides more consistent curing by addressing potential intensity loss caused by the use of long or bent lightguides.

With this new design, the system can be truly tailored to users’ curing needs – allowing them to choose from three different wavelength LED emitters (365, 385, or 405 nm) so optimal cures are achieved. Users also have endless set up flexibility; for automated curing processes, the emitter can be easily mounted to robotic arms or further from the controller without fear of intensity variations. When used as a bench-top curing system, the unit can be paired with a stand and shielding or a lightguide can be connected to the system for specialized applications.

Heat Control

For applications with heat-sensitive components, interruptions in the exposure duration can slow the materials’ temperature climb during the cure process. This isn’t a concern with the BlueWave® MX-150™ because the curing profile can be optimized to reduce the risk of substrate damage.

Admin and Production Modes

The admin mode fully unlocks the device and allows for setting curing time and intensity cycles. Each individual curing cycle can be entered and saved as a program and recalled when needed. The production mode is designed for simple operation by manufacturing personnel. Settings and access to admin mode can be password protected using the full QWERTY keyboard.
