Xenon Corporation has over 40 years of high intensity pulsed UV
lamp design and manufacturing to meet industry, research and educational
needs. Our engineers are experts at delivering the optimum light
footprint for each application.
Matching optical footprint
Many applications require lamp designs that are matched to the target
“footprint”. Traditionally, mercury UV lamps have been
limited to short arc or linear lamp designs. There are no such limits
on pulsed UV lamps. The ability to shape the lamp to the application,
providing better uniformity and enhanced matching of the UV light
with the substrate, is a benefit for demanding applications.
Illustrating the flexibility inherent in being able to choose the
shape of a lamp,
is Xenon’s unique spiral lamp* design, specifically developed
for Optical Disc manufacturing. The spiral lamp design provides
better uniformity and enhanced matching of the UV light across the
substrate. Spiral shaped pulsed UV lamps meet the need for fast,
low heat adhesive bonding of two polycarbonate discs as well as
complete curing of thick top-layer coatings used with new formats
such as Blu-ray Disc™.
