Prophotonix UV Cobra Curing System

UV LED Curing Systems: Cobra Cure FX Series

The COBRA Cure FX series of UV LED Curing systems by ProPhotonix has been designed specifically for UV curing of inks, coatings and adhesives. ProPhotonix has developed a range of compact, UV LED lamps offering all the benefits of an LED solution and incorporating a number of unique features to ensure a consistent, reliable cure throughout the long lifetime of the system.

UV LED Curing Systems Advantages

UV LED curing systems offer vastly improved lifetimes, reduced maintenance costs, significant energy savings, and with no ozone emissions or mercury content, offer a more sustainable solution than traditional technologies. In addition, the “cold cure” offered by LED-based systems is ideal for heat sensitive or thin films. Users will benefit from innovative features, including a field replaceable window, designed to allow rapid replacement of windows with a build-up of ink mist, without the need for any special tools.

The COBRA Cure FX platform maximises the inherent value of LED Solutions while also incorporating a number of unique features. These patent pending features have been developed to ensure ease of integration, optimum performance, maximum lifetime, safety and reliability in the field. The platform is configurable to address a wide range of user requirements including optimised optics, customisable mechanics and electronic options.

COBRA Cure FX Series: Key Features

Configurability

The COBRA Cure FX series is a configurable platform that can be tailored to suit the relevant customer requirement. The COBRA Cure FX series high degree of configurability ensures that a range of configurations can be realised at a justifiable cost.

Scalability

The FX series can be easily combined into LED elements of longer lengths. The optical design of the FX series minimises drops in intensity from module to module ensuring consistent edge-to-edge illumination.

Intensity Control

The COBRA Cure FX modules are made up of multiple drivers allowing individual control of segments of LEDs across the lamp. An internal microprocessor allows the module to self-monitor each of these segments and control their output in real-time to guarantee excellent linear intensity control and consistent uniformity across the lamp over its lifetime to ensure an even cure. The upper and lower limits of intensity can be factory set to ensure module to module consistency for users.

Uniformity Control

The COBRA Cure FX series electronics offers excellent intensity control ensuring that uniformity is maintained across varying environmental conditions and over the lifetime of the lamp. ProPhotonix designs and manufactures its own Chip-on-Board substrates and therefore has complete control of LED placement to further maximise lamp performance.
