Wait! LED Technology in a Spot Curing System?

Yes, you read that correctly! Last week we talked about just one of the many spot curing products offered by our Lesco division of American Ultraviolet. To expand upon that discussion we wanted to talk about one more spot curing solution- The Cool Cure 365.

Arc Lamp Technology vs LED Technology
Still a Need for Arc Lamps
Arc lamp curing technology is still a readily available and prominent solution for spot curing with applications that may exceed the known capabilities of the newer use of LED UVA curing technology. For larger and faster spot curing needs arc technology is still widely used and more commonly recommended while LED function continues to develop.

LED Benefits

  • Low Energy Consumption and overall a more environmentally "green" spot curing solution with no mercury.
  • With no warm up time there is the instant On/Off function.
  • Longer and more consistent LED life.
  • A cooler cure with less heat.
  • Smaller overall control box and more allowed head flexibility increase its function and usability.

The Cool Cure 365 is the most powerful UVA LED curing device on the market. What is so special about LED curing? Using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) allows for a high intensity spot curing application and produces far less heat. By using LEDs consumers are able to create a cool cure as well as take advantage of all of the LED curing benefits. The LEDs are able to have a life of over 15,000 hours of continued consistent output as well as having no warm up period before use. The Cool Cure 365 is a direct replacement for older mercury arc based spot curing systems and eliminates annoying bulb and filter replacement. With no replacement costs there are no additional maintenance costs to the consumer!

The Cool Cure 365 has several new and improved features in the spot curing world. For example, as mentioned above there is no warm up period meaning the device has a instant on/off capability with a programmable timer, as well as the ability to adjust output intensity from 0-100%. By using the Cool Cure 365 consumers are also using a far more "green" product for their spot curing needs as the LED technology is far more environmentally friendly then arc lamps.This type of technology would be great for narrow areas of spot curing needs by utilizing a 5 mm diameter standard light guide with a peak output of 367nm.

Our Cool Cure 365 is also backed by a 2 year labor and part warranty that is the longest in the industry. Stop by our website and curing document library to learn more about the specs of the Cool Cure 365 as well as all of our curing solutions.
