bluepoint LED eco
The bluepoint LED eco from Hoenle provides high intensity, light curing energy for industrial assembly processes involving UV and Visible light curing adhesives, coatings, and sealants. Up to four LED heads can be powered from a single bluepoint LED eco power control unit. The multiple LED heads can be programmed to operate simultaneously, in sequence, or totally independently to create up to four individual workstations. The Hoenle bluepoint LED eco is available with LED wavelengths of 365, 385, and 405nm. Any combination can be integrated with the compact power control unit.
It’s incredibly small size, (65 x 160 x 130 mm), make the bluepoint LED eco ideally suited for integration into automated processing equipment. Bench space requirements in expensive cleanrooms can also minimized with the tiny footprint of the bluepoint LED eco. Programming, process monitoring, and software downloads can be accomplished using the unit’s touchpad control or from a remote PLC.
A power adjustment feature provides the ability to reduce output intensity from 100% to as low as 10% for maximum operating and adhesive curing efficiency. Process Flow Control permits full programming of the curing cycle including exposure series using different intensities and dwell time for parts handling.
The bluepoint LED eco requires no warm-up time and provides instant on/off control. Actuation of the LEDs can range from 0.1 to 0.999 seconds. Each LED head is equipped with a removable holding fixture for easy mounting. UV and Visible light adhesive bonding can be optimized with focusing lenses that adjust light footprint and intensity to create application-specific curing processes. Intensities as high as 16,000 mW/cm2 (405nm) can be achieved. Optimized curing and high intensity output combine to produce the shortest adhesive curing cycles.
Typical applications for the bluepoint LED eco include the curing of UV adhesives, potting materials, and coatings associated with component assembly in the medical, micro-electronics, mobile device, and transportation industries.
