Amba UV lamps


Mercury UV lamps for curing applications
Mercury arc lamps are most commonly used for curing applications. The Heraeus Amba® product range includes lamps from a 12 mm arc length up to 3.9 metres and everything in between. The unique flexibility of the production line means that anything from just one replacement lamp up to large batch quantities for the most widely used types can be made. Power ratings range from 80 watts per cm up to 400 watts per cm.


Typical spectral output of a mercury lamp

Typical application: UV curing of inks and varnishes responsive to 365 nm wavelength.

Metal halide lamps – for repro graphic and special curing applications
Metal halide lamps are most commonly used for repro graphic applications, and for some curing applications requiring enhanced spectral outputs. They are mercury lamps with the addition of gallium iodide, iron iodide or other rare earth metal iodides which alter the spectral output of the lamp. At Heraeus, we are specialists in finding the right metal halide for your specific application that optimises the efficiency of your curing process. The quality of Amba® metal halide lamps can be quantified by:

  • a long service life
  • short exposure times
  • small variations in exposure time during the life
  • of the lamps
  • reliable ignition


Typical spectral output of an iron iodide lamp

Enhances spectral output at 380 nm Typical application: UV curing of inks and varnishes responsive to 380nm wavelength.


Typical output of a gallium iodide lamp

Spectral lines at 403 nm and 417 nm Typical application: UV curing of inks and varnishes responsive to 420 nm wavelength.
