Flood-lamp and spot curing systems for 3D printing

The DYMAX UV flood lamp and spot curing systems from Intertronics have uses in post-curing for 3D printing processes.

The DYMAX UV flood lamp and spot curing systems from Intertronics (Kidlington, Oxfordshire, England) have uses in post-curing for 3D printing processes such as stereolithography that use photopolymer resin, and also for subsequent re-working and repair. Designed for area curing or for curing multiple assemblies at once, the flood-lamp models use a powerful UV light-curing lamp (up to 225mW/cm2) for fast curing over a 13 × 13cm area. For rework or repair, such as curing drain-hole fills, assembling larger assemblies, or repairing cracked or broken models, the BlueWave 200 3.0 spot-lamp system emits energy in the UVA and visible portion of the spectrum (300–450nm), and is well suited for either manual or automated processes. It contains an integral shutter that can be actuated by a foot pedal or PLC, and a universal power input that allows operation globally. Both lamps may be used as bench-top curing systems or integrated into automated production lines.
