UV curing lamps for curing and reprography applications

Amba® UV curing lamps

The UV curing lamp is used in industrial applications to cure special UV curing paints, adhesives and printing inks and for reprography.
The emission spectrum of the UV lamps can be changed by adding metal halides such as gallium iodide and iron iodide. In this way, these so-called metal halide lamps (MH lamps) are precisely tuned to your process.
