Microwave UV system

Heraeus microwave powered UV systems consist of two easy-to-service, modular design components.
The microwave powered UV lamp and its high-voltage power pack.
The systems are available in the sizes 167 mm and 267 mm and, due to modular extension capability, can provide any radiation exposure width required in a process. In the case of variable process widths, modules that are not required can be switched off which results in reduced process costs.
The core of the microwave powered lamp system is the electrodeless lamp bulb which features an exceptionally long service life without aging effects.
Lamp bulbs are available with different emission spectrums to optimally adjust the lamp system to the chemistry to be cured.

Advantages of the microwave powered UV system:

  • Highest intensities at the substrate for high production speeds and process reliability during curing
  • System solution for retrofitting to existing plants
  • Fast switch-on and switch-off without impact on service life
  • Guaranteed lamp bulb life of 6,000 to 8,000 hours of operation

F450 UV system

The F450 10-inch microwave-powered UV curing system is no longer available as of July 2017. As part of our product roadmap we are moving all power supplies to solid state technology. As a result, we replaced the F450 system’s P150 power supply with a new solid state version, the Light Hammer® MKII M 10L. Existing F450 system users can now upgrade their systems by simply replacing the power supply. The new power supply reduces energy costs and works with existing I250 irradiators, blowers and RF detectors. Please contact your sales representative for details.

Upgrade to UV LED now! Our new UV LED curing system, designed as a drop-in replacement for existing F450 curing systems, enables you to get the operating cost savings of UV LED technology with minimal production interruption. Learn More
