UK UV developer Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) has introduced an air-cooled LED curing system with class leading size-to-power ratio making it the most compact on the market.
Measuring just 86mm long x 54mm wide x 79mm high, the MZero LED has a cure length of 30mm and generates > 4W/cm² centred around 395nm.
It utilises all of the proven features and benefits of its sister arc product, incorporating them into an LED alternative enhanced by extra functionalities including instant on/off, variable power and low temperature operation.
A ready-to-go turnkey solution that is simple to integrate with no additional parts required, the MZero LED is highly user-friendly, with a plug-and-play lamp head design feature enabling simple machine integration or field installation.
Ideally suited to digital inkjet applications such as small plotters, product printers or marking and encoding applications, the system is equally at home curing adhesives, sealants and coatings in electronics, product assembly and other industrial applications.
With a service life in excess of 20,000 hours, the MZero LED is sold with a comprehensive warranty backed by global support direct from ITL and its strategic partner, IST Metz.
Its launch follows January’s introduction of a similar variant to ITL’s heritage SubZero UV lamp range.
“After a year of major investment in R&D, we’re undertaking a significant product rollout in 2013 that includes taking established brands to new performance levels via LED technology,” says ITL sales director David Johnson. “The MZero LED is our second new product to market this year and there is more to come.”
