Ultraviolet (UV) Curing Lamps

UV curing is widely used in silkscreen, flexo, offset, CD/DVD printing and replication, medical manufacturing, bottle/cup decorating and converting/coating applications, in both digital and conventional presses.  We supply lamps for all makes and models of flatbed printers, UV ovens, conveyors and chambers and guns, in arc lengths up to 146 inches, with standard mercury doping, as well as iron and gallium.  Fusion-style electrodeless lamps available too!  Call with your special needs and problems:  We thrive on challenges!  If you don't know what lamp you have, we can duplicate any lamp from your working sample.  Just give us a call!

Please note, we supply just the lamps, not the equipment to operate them.  UV lamps require sophisticated ballasts and control equipment, so we don't recommend trying to build your own equipment.

Lamps for Flexo / Narrow Web Printing of Labels, Decals and Packaging

Ultraviolet curing of inks and coatings is widely used in flexographic and letterpress printing of labels, decals, and flexible packaging, as well as off-line for curing of coatings. In addition to standard linear arc lamps, we supply microwave excited and mercury capillary lamps. UV lamps are also used to expose photopolymer and other printing plates. Infrared (IR) lamps are used on press to dry ink by heat, rather than cure the ink.

Platemaking / Screen Printing / PCB  Exposure Lamps

Conventional graphic arts platemakers (including flip-tops and overheads), screen exposure systems and vacuum frames all use specially designed lamps to emit the correct wavelength of light for proper exposure of photo sensitive emulsions.  Graphic arts cameras, photolithography, soldermask, and other equipment also use specially designed lamps.  We supply original specification lamps for maximum productivity, without the OEM price.   Call for details on other lamp types.

Germicidal UV

Germicidal lamps emit UV light around 254 nanometers for use in air and water purification, wastewater treatment (we supply both the lamps and the quartz sleeves for Trojan and other systems), food processing, pharmaceutical production, sterilization, disinfection, dermatology, clean room and other applications. Most germicidal lamps are fluorescent types and come in both ozone-free and ozone-producing versions .
