As you research and develop UV LED curing processes for your electronics or medical device manufacturing, it’s important to work with partners, both equipment and chemistry, who can help guide and support you to get the results you need faster.
Learn about the kinds of support and expertise the right UV curing partner can provide:
UV curing testing, when done correctly in the lab using UV LED curing equipment just like that which will go on your production line, easily scales to pilot line and production processes. This helps ensure your R&D efforts in the lab translate directly to the manufacturing line.
You need lab scale UV LED curing equipment that is flexible, reliable, and easy to work with. Or work with a UV LED system provider who has the capability to run tests in their lab. Learn more about Heraeus Noblelight’s UV curing testing facilities .
Also make sure the UV LED equipment supplier can loan out equipment for trials on a pilot line, yours or elsewhere -- critical for feasibility analysis and ultimately production process success. Heraeus has UV LED demo equipment is available for lab and line trials.
You need a partner who has UV curing process experience specific to bonding and sealing applications for electronics and medical devices.
UV curing application specialists at Heraeus leverage their process development experience with UV adhesives and sealants on a variety of electronic and medical materials and parts to save you time by:
- Recommending test set-ups and protocols
- Providing measurement advice and training
- Running tests, for or with you, in our application labs
Often their broad industry application knowledge sparks a new idea for your success.
Whether you need to retrofit an existing production line or are starting with a clean slate, Heraeus UV LED curing experts have years of experience with all kinds of processes:
- Spot cure
- Continuous conveyors
- Indexing conveyors
- Static cure chambers
So they’ll understand quickly what process options to investigate first and techniques for overcoming some of the challenges with UV LED curing – a real time saver for your process R&D efforts!

For many electronics and medical device bonding and sealing applications, your existing formulator is likely to offer UV LED curable formulations. However, a UV LED curing system provider should be able to point you to other possible UV LED chemistry formulators and help you create a formulator shortlist.
Heraeus has close relationships with the UV LED adhesive and sealant formulators. We also have UV chemists on staff who can work with your formulator to suggest formulation changes or techniques to improve curing results. This is especially crucial for UV LED formulations in order to improve process speeds and functional requirements without damaging electronic or other heat sensitive components.
