About UV Conveyor 40
The Uvitron UV Conveyor 40 is a bench-top or stand-mounted UV light curing conveyor system, designed for high volume production or laboratory applications. The conveyor features a quiet variable speed motor, with a velocity regulating drive that keeps the belt speed constant for varying loads. The system can be configured with single or dual high intensity lamp heads, which can be removed and reconfigured as stand mounted systems for increased versatility. The belt-to-lamp height can be easily adjusted from 1.5 to 5 inches, for improved compatibility with varying part sizes. The UV conveyor can be configured with one or two SunRay UV Flood lamp heads, or with the higher powered SkyRay UV LED lamp heads. The system can also be configured for side curing with the PortaRay UV lamp heads.
Adjustable Lamp Height
Foldaway end covers provide quick access to height adjustment pins, which provide perfectly repeatable settings of lamp head to belt distance.
Adjustable End Chute
The system has an adjustable position end chute for accumulating cured parts as they exit the conveyor.
0.5 to 12 Ft./min., >100 mW/cm2, Exposure: 1 lamp = 3.3-80 sec. (333-8,000mJ), 2 lamps = 6.65 to 160 sec. (665-16,000mJ).
Digital Speed Readout and E-stop Switch
A digital rate meter accurately displays the conveyor's belt speed in feet per minute, allowing for repeatable curing time settings. An emergency stop switch provides for quick and safe shutdown of conveyor and lamps.
Removable Lamp Heads
The system's dual lamp heads can be easily removed for bulb replacement and maintenance. The lamp heads can also be moved quickly from the conveyor to optional low cost shielded mounting stands. This feature allows for offline engineering process testing, and maximum equipment utilization.
The light chamber has a top-mounted 3" diameter port, for optional venting to facility exhaust systems.
Dual Spectrum Capable
The UV Conveyor 40 dual lamp heads offer the unique curing advantage of mixing any of its 4 available lamp spectrum types. For instance, the conveyor's first lamp head can be fitted with a UVB lamp for sealing the surface, preventing oxygen from diffusing and causing surface tackiness. The second lamp can be a UVA type whose longer wavelengths penetrate more effectively, providing deeper curing. This method optimizes adhesive reaction speed without the need for expensive nitrogen purge or the delays of pulse curing.
Full UV Shielding
The conveyor light chamber is totally enclosed, shielding the operator and passer-bys from any UV light. The light chamber entrance and exit are protected by sliding tinted acrylic doors with extended hoods.
Optional Mounting Stands
The system may be configured with extruded aluminum height adjustable mounting stands. The stands have unique swivel support brackets that allow them to support inclined conveyors, as well as provide angular transitions between continuous conveyors.
Wavelength, Optical Power and Other Options
The UV Conveyor 40 can be configured with various reflector, and lamp spectrum options, as outlined in Ordering Information below. Other conveyor lengths are available as special order. Many accessories are also available for configuring the conveyor system into an automated assembly center: Over-belt counter tops, under-belt storage bins, walk-thru gate sections, 90º-turn wheels, end to end or end to side belt transition plates, product end stops, half stops, guide rails, photoelectric sensors, convenience outlets, remote foot pedals, etc.
Because of the many different curing options and output wavelengths available for this system, the price below is for the UV Conveyor 40 unit and options chosen below and does not include lamps or lamp heads. You can supply your own lamp heads or order our units from their respective pages. Links to these products can be found below. 2 curing slots are available on the top of the unit, so you can choose 1 or 2 SunRay, or 1 or 2 SkyRay LED units, or a combination 1 SunRay and 1 SkyRay. For side curing you will need to add 1 or 2 PortaRay systems, depending on whether you wish to cure just one side, or both sides.
