Sheetfed commercial printing is shifting to UV LED because of improved print quality, productivity, and reduction in energy consumption. Meanwhile, in response to growing demand for high speed printing, manufacturers in the UV curing systems market are focusing on developing high quality UV LED curing system.

UV Curing System Gaining Traction in the Automotive Industry

UV curing systems are gaining traction in the automotive industry with extensive use of UV light curing system for assembling and bonding application in the automotive sector. In recent years, the use of medium pressure UV curing lamps has increased in the automotive industry. Moreover, UV curable coating is largely being applied to alloy wheels in order to protect the finish from ice, water, salt, light and scratch damage. These coatings on alloy wheels are exposed to medium pressure UV curing lamps for quick drying. Moreover, automotive manufacturers continue to focus on UV curable coatings for exterior paint finish. This has led to the development of robotic UV curing for automotive exteriors as technically viable and cost-effective alternative for UV curing system in the automotive industry.

Limited Depth of Curing to Restrain the Growth in the UV Curing System Market

One of the primary limitations of the UV curing system is the limited penetration depth of light which depends on the spectral and wavelength distribution and does not exceed a few millimeters. The light induced cure is also limited to coatings, inks, and adhesives. Meanwhile, different UV adhesives have been designed with different cure wavelength and speed. Hence, based on the nature of UV curable adhesive the depth of cure is limited, this is leading to the manufacturers selecting different UV cure products with improved depth of cure.

Moreover, type of UV light also affects the depth of cure. This is resulting in the use of lamp system with higher intensity peaks nearly 385 nm or greater, thus allowing UV light to cure adhesives in thick sections and also cure material more uniformly.
