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…
