Medium Pressure UV Curing

Industries around the world use our high-quality medium pressure ultraviolet (MPUV) lamps for a multitude of curing applications.

Medium pressure UV curing uses UVA light in the wavelength range of 367nm to 400nm. These wavelengths are exceedingly efficient in curing UV-light activated inks, bonds, adhesives, and finishes (lacquers, glazes and varnishes). Compared to heat curing, UV light curing has fewer maintenance costs and does not produce noxious fumes; no expensive exhaust systems are required.

MPUV lamps are suitable for high-speed press runs, where a higher intensity of UV light is needed due to shorter exposure times.  Able to operate with more power, this lamp type can produce high currents for a greater UV output. For example, a 36-inch lamp can produce between 100 to 700 watts per inch, with a total wattage of 3,600 to 25,200.

In addition to offering standard solutions, our engineers can design and develop a system to meet the highly-customized specifications of our OEM clients.
