Phoseon Technology has introduced the FireEdge FE100, the first natural convection UV LED light source for industrial curing.
The FE100 UV LED curing lamp for digital inkjet pinning, has no internal fan and is cooled passively through natural convection. A secondary application is edge curing during the manufacture of flat panel displays.
“With its instant on/off and full intensity control, the FE100 enables precise finish control for digital inkjet pinning,” said Ed Kiyoi, senior technical marketing engineer at Phoseon Technology. “And its extremely slim form factor makes it ideal for flat panel display edge curing.”
Using only ambient air for cooling, the FE100, which has an emitting window of 180x10 mm, eliminates the need for any external forced-air cooling system or chiller to remove heat from the UV source.
The FE100 joins the family of Phoseon FireEdge compact air-cooled UV LED light sources that minimize the distance required between inkjet heads, offer a simple, quick programmable logic controller (PLC) interface and provide high reliability and long life.
The FE100 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018.
