IMM Photonics GmbH has introduced the ilumCURE industrial USB Interface controlled LED illumination system
IMM Photonics GmbH has introduced the ilumCURE industrial USB Interface controlled LED illumination system for curing of UV adhesives reproducibly with high intensity at a wavelength between 365 nm to 440 nm.

In automated manufacturing processes up to 127 ilumCURE devices can be controlled individually via a single PC to perform punctual or wide area exposures with adjustable intensity and duration.

The operating states of the devices can be monitored remotely to detect issues within automated production. Reproducible hardening processes are ensured by a controller-operated LED current measurement and by an overheat recognition. The longevity of the devices is ensured by a robust aluminum housing, an adequate thermal management and an electronic surge protection.

Using the available accessories the devices compriing the ilumCURE industrial Series are customizable to existing production environments. The Software Development Kit allows easy integration of the devices functionalities into process-specific automation programs.
