Commercial use of UV LED curing technology is advancing at a rapid pace due to improvements in energy output and increasing availability of ink, adhesive, and coating chemistry formulations. This article provides process design and development engineers knowledgeable about UV curing with a brief introduction to UV LED curing, benefits for manufacturing production lines, and next steps to ensure you stay ahead of your competition.
Manufacturing with UV LED Curing
With so many on-going projects and tight timelines it’s hard for manufacturing process design and development engineers to stay updated on the latest UV curing technologies for production processes such as decorating, bonding and sealing, printing or marking, and functional coatings. However, UV LED curing technology is advancing rapidly with the opportunity to increase manufacturing production rates by as much as 10% or more, across many industries from automotive and medical device to aerospace, electronics, automotive, packaging, and more.
