Drying and curing of inks, paint and coatings on metal

Manufacturers of metal cans, pipe, and other products use UV curing for decorating, protecting parts and improving production rates dramatically.

UV Can coating and decorating

UV curing on metal substrates is now common for applications such as decoration and functional coatings on beverage cans, protective coatings for pipe and tube, and nameplate/identification tag decorating. In addition, a wide variety of coatings on metal parts, from propane tanks to underhood automotive parts, oil filter housings and motor assemblies, are UV cured. Many metal part UV curing applications require 3D curing capability which is ideal for Heraeus Noblelight’s microwave-powered systems.
