The mercury lamp has a strong output in the short wave UV range between 220 and 320 nm (nanometers) and a spike of energy in the longwave range at 365 nm. The H lamp is a good choice for clear coatings and thin ink layers and produces hard surface cures and high gloss finishes.
The addition of iron to the lamp yields a strong output in the long wave range between 350 and 400 nm while the mercury component maintains good output in the short wavelength range. The D lamp is a good choice for curing heavily pigmented inks, adhesives, and thick letdowns of clear materials.
The addition of gallium to the lamp yields a strong output in the long wave range between 400 and 450 nm. This makes the V lamp a good choice for curing white pigmented inks and base coats containing titanium dioxide which blocks most shortwave UV.
MAIN OPERATIONAL SCREEN
- All the functions of the Ultra Light system are accessed from the touch screen control panel.
- The system consists of three modes of operation: Setup, Run and Monitor.
- The operator can switch between all modes even when the UV is in operation.
SETUP MODE SCREEN
- Setup mode is a password protected screen that allows the operator to set the delay on/off time of the blower. Multiple blowers may be configured in a system.
- The total operational hours of the lamp is displayed in a message box. The operator resets this hour meter reading when a new lamp is installed in the system.
RUN MODE SCREEN
- Different lamp power settings (200/300/400 WPI) are chosen by a simple touch of the screen.
- Status of the UV lamp as well as step by step instructions for the UV system are displayed in the message box at the lower right section of the screen. This straight forward and intuitive approach allows a novice operator to operate the Ultra Light system easily.
MONITOR MODE SCREEN
- Condition of the UV lamp, lamp current and total lamp operation hours are displayed on the monitor mode screen.

About Systematic Automation for UV Curing Systems
Systematic Automation is a pioneer in manufacturing UV curing systems, providing state-of-the-art UV curing machines and components for decades. Curing of inks, adhesives, and coatings with intense Ultraviolet light is a very effective and efficient way to speed up a final process in many parts manufacturing applications. When these coatings are exposed to UV radiation, a photochemical reaction occurs, instantly drying the outer coating with minimal shrinking, and no use of volatile chemicals.
A UV curing system provides a very consistent process compared to other drying methods where evaporation occurs. The photochemical reaction happens so quickly that part integrity is maintained, increasing the quality of your customer’s product. UV Curing provides high quality consistent results, with speed and automation giving even greater benefits with cost-saving efficient processes.
Some examples of UV curing used in commercial and industrial applications include:
- Automotive – instant drying of inks on interior automotive parts such as window buttons and dashboard labeling
- Aerospace – effective curing of parts labeling where durability and reliability are critical
- Medical – drying and disinfection is provided from UV curing processes in medical and pharmaceutical applications
- Screen printing – fast and effective curing on various products such as signs, t-shirts, mugs and pens
Systematic Automation has designed, engineered, manufactured and installed thousands of UV curing systems offering dozens of models to choose from. Our UV curing machines are manufactured with superior parts and components, providing long-lasting high performance.
