Focused Uniform UV Coverage For Your Cylindrical Products
The Model UVSP (U.S. Patent # 6,397,491 B1) UV Curing Machine for cylindrical products is designed for those who demand outstanding UV curing performance, energy efficiency and the highest return on investment. The UVSP has a true focused 360 degree cure, not uneven and marginal “spin on the fly” curing as found on conventional UV tunnel conveyor systems. And there is direct UV exposure that does not rely on mirrors for 360 degree coverage, which you will find with conventional UV tunnel systems. Mirrors degrade UV intensity by over 60 percent.
The UVSP utilizes reflectors to reflect light from the ends of the irradiator back onto the work surface for maximum possible energy efficiency. Your cylindrical product Universal vacuum plates securely hold most cylindrical products without the need for special holding nests. When special holding nests are needed, such as for small diameter tubes, the nest (or spindles) insert into the vacuum plate center hole without tools. All of these features are available in one compact machine requiring minimal floor space. The combination of the UVSP and the Ultra Light UV System offers value through technologically advanced designs that increase uptime and lower operating costs.
The UVSP uses an all mechanical Geneva indexer with a brilliantly simple overload clutch (entirely designed and manufactured at our factory in Connecticut USA). The Geneva indexer provides harmonic (smooth acceleration and deceleration) dial motion. The indexer is driven by a 110 volt variable speed AC Tech brushless motor. The motor is rated for continuous operation. Tied to the indexer drive by chain is the machine controller. No PLC is used. This machine control technique entirely eliminates the problem of electrical component obsolescence. The unique machine control allows operators with basic mechanical skill to service the machine and make program changes using basic shop tools.
You may require the Model FL Cylindrical Flame Treatment Machine to improve ink adhesion for your cylindrical products during the UV curing process.
Our standard UV curing units include UV conveyorized systems for UV curing flat products and UV spin cures for curing cylindrical products (U.S. Patent number #6,397,491 B1). Our pre-engineered UV curing machines are used for UV curable inks, adhesives, and coatings.
