Optimize UV LED Arrays For Efficiency and Performance

Optimize UV LEDs Used in UV Curing

UV curing systems using UV LED arrays without an optical element frequently allow light rays to miss the curing surface. This wasted energy leads to increased operating costs. Conversely, an optimized system will direct the bulk of UV rays to the intended surface. Kopp found that by introducing an optimized UV glass optic, the efficiency…

New Study Shows that Custom UV Glass Optics Increase UV LED Irradiance by 25% Compared to Quartz Rods

Custom molded UV glass optics

Maximizing a UV LED’s peak irradiance is imperative in many UV curing applications. More power can improve production speeds and increase throughput. In these applications, UV LEDs are often arranged into linear arrays, where they are placed side-by-side in a row, and are usually protected by a flat window or an optic. We wondered, is…
