HILLSBORO, OR—Phoseon Technology announced the new FireJet and FireEdge NIR Explorer near-infrared lamps with powerful features offering significant technology advances for curable adhesives, 3D printing and pinning on low-migration applications. The near-infrared LED lamps provide customers with a small form factor, instant on/off and lower power consumption over traditional NIR lamps.
“Phoseon’s cutting-edge NIR LED systems are ideal for novel NIR curable adhesives and R&D on such applications,” said Simon Reissmann, technical marketing engineer for Phoseon Technology. “Further, this technology has shown potential in pinning and improving print quality on water-based and hybrid inks (low migration) in inkjet printing before the final curing stage.”
The FireJet NIR Explorer offers high power in an air-cooled package. The 0.78-in. wide window guarantees that the energy is spread wider for a larger dose and exposure time in high-speed applications.
The FireEdge NIR Explorer is the smaller brother of the FireJet NIR Explorer. It offers roughly one-fifth the output power with a 10-mm. wide rod lens. The small form factor in combination with the more focused rod lens output is ideal to deliver high intensity at 0.19-in. to 0.39-in. working distance.
The NIR Explorer systems include cables, power supply, protective cover glass and extended warranty. Products will be available in the second quarter of 2021.
