Detects Degradation of UV Lamps Used for Drying in UV Printing
Case Number 243
last update: November 4, 2009
This application uses a UV power monitor that allows you to monitor the amount of light from a UV lamp.
The system detects the degradation and output of UV lamps used for drying and hardening of UV printing. It keeps the amount of light of UV lamps constant to enable quality control of hardening conditions.
A UV lamp was usually replaced after a specified time or when it burned out. This created waste from the viewpoint of the environment or costs if you replaced it before reaching the life. It could also result in damage to previously processed products if you replace the UV lamp after it burned out.
Benefit / Efficiency
This application monitors the amount of light of a UV lamp to enable constant irradiation. Thus, it ensures stable production quality and prevents wasteful replacement of lamps to optimize maintenance costs.
