How UV/EB Works

Apply Coating to Substrate

•    Spray, Roll, Dip, Curtain, Vacuum, etc.

Cure Coating

•    UV Light (Electrode, Microwave, Pulse)
•    Fixed Position, Robotic, Substrate Rotation, LaraluxTM
•    Electron Beam
•    LED

TYPICAL BENEFITS:

  • Immediate handling & quality inspection
  • Immediate packaging & shipping
  • Increased productivity
  • Improved thru-put
  • No Work-In-Process
  • Minimal Floor Space
  • Reduction in Inventory
  • No waste handling
  • No solvents to mitigate/dispose
  • No regulatory requirements or permits
  • Easy color change
  • Minimal maintenance requirements and spare parts
  • Lower energy demand
  • Seamless integration, cellular mfg design with Lean Mfg applied principles
