Phoseon has developed a product portfolio of clean energy UV curing systems based on UV-LED technology utilizing their proprietary SLMTM (Semiconductor Light Matrix) technology that leads the world in the transition from mercury tube technology to solid state systems in many industrial applications where high intensity light - typically in the near UV spectrum - is used to dry and harden photosensitive materials. These almost "instant" UV curing and drying processes allow for accelerated production speeds, lower production costs and reduced energy usage when compared to previous curing and drying methods using heat drying or solvent evaporation.
