The Leader in Industrial Curing UV LED Applications
Phoseon is the leader in UV LED industrial curing applications. The name Phoseon comes from the Greek word for light, phos, and the word eon, meaning an immeasurably long time. So the definition of Phoseon is long lasting light. The company’s mission is to exploit innovative light sources to solve industrial problems and enable new applications.Today, Phoseon offers semiconductor ultra violet and infrared light sources for curing applications. Their high intensity integrated light systems cover curing applications for the printing, coating and adhesive markets. The key to Phoseon’s success is to provide “disruptive technologies”. They enable discontinuous innovation solve specific business problems.UV curing refers to the unique way in which adhesives, coatings and inks are dried using “energy” from UV light sources rather than using heat or evaporation. If you drive a car, use a smart phone, or drink bottled water—all these objects have been “cured” using ultraviolet (UV) light.Ultraviolet (UV) LED stands for ultraviolet light emitting diode. A UV LED is an electronic light source with electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength shorter than that of visible light but longer than x-rays. Ultraviolet curing is the polymerization of UV sensitive materials, rather than drying through the evaporation of solvents.
Phoseon has developed a UV LED energy source that provides maximum UV energy, superior performance, and long-term reliability while also improving workplace safety. While many manufacturers continue to use a broad range of techniques for their curing applications, an increasing number are embracing UV LED due to its numerous benefits. Phoseon’s air-cooled LED lamp surpasses 70,000 hours of operational on-time with irradiance being greater than 80% of its original output when the test first began ten years ago.Phoseon’s extensive reliability testing includes highly accelerated life testing, temperature, and vibration assessments to ensure products are rugged and reliable in even the harshest environments.
