UV Coaters

Made in the USAUV Irradiators

A needed difference in today’s demanding process!

American Ultraviolet’s SpectraCure lamp assembly’s feature advance technology and design in UV Curing Equipment. The unique standard fixtures, which fit almost any press type, have made American Ultraviolet a top supplier to companies with UV NEEDS. Our MULTI FOCAL POINT REFLECTORS, have given The SpectraCure System the leading edge in Technology and Science in UV Curing. Our UV Curing System provides outstanding performance and reliability with current applications in the printing, packaging, plastics, wood, and electronics industries. American Ultraviolet slogan is “LET US CURE YOUR UV NEEDS", and we do exactly that.

The SpectraCure comes standard with Quartz Heat Barriers to block the un-needed IR Heat that is generated by the UV Lamp. Also standard is our High Speed polished Aluminum Multi Focal Point Elliptical Reflector to gain more Total Energy than your standard elliptical reflector. We also have the COOL UV OPTION available by request, which consist of an optically balanced package, which provides the ability to run high-heat sensitive substrates. Our special combination of Dichroic filters, Hot-Mirrored Quartz barrier glass, and our closed-loop auto damper heat management package enables our system to cure at both low and high print speeds without the use of chill rolls or refrigerated air. Our Cool UV Option, allows operators to run substrates that react to heat by distortion such as Films, Polypropylenes, Mylar’s, etc..

The Command Center is the heart and brain of our systems. The X5000 Series standard PLC/Touch Screen controls provide for easy changes to the lamp operating system. Program set-up parameters facilitate the operator/equipment operation through a remote touch-screen interface, standard on all system configurations. The X5000 Series comes equipped with the digital thermostat and auto damper temperature feedback cooling system to preserve optimal Lamp Voltage, chamber and substrate temperatures. The Touch Screen Control panel offers easy to use functions for the operation of your single lamp system.

Balanced air movement in the SpectraCure Irradiator is achieved with a heat management cooling system that is linked through a dedicated exhaust cooling blower. All blowers are fully automatic with built in timing system to allow the lamp to reach its peak voltage, for optimal output. The system uses Airflow Heat Sensors, thermocouples, and an auto damper all looped through a digital thermostat for optimum heat management.

The American Ultraviolet lamp cassettes come standard with mercury vapor lamps, yet Additive (Metal Halide) and Ozone Free lamps are available. The Irradiator receives the Lamp Cartridge Assembly (Cassette) and is easily removable for service ability and for mobility from station to station. Purchasing spare Irradiator assembly’s allows you to move your Lamp Cartridge Assembly from station to station. With a Clam Shell Shutter design and a preset programmable shutter timing adjustment The SpectraCure provides web protection in press idle mode as well as slow speeds. Your Installation is made clean by use of our Uni-Cable design, which provides lamp power, pneumatics and lamp controls along with the utility of quick disconnects. This all in One Cable Assembly is a prime example of the thought and engineering that has went into the design of these units to provide a easy yet productive operation.
