Temperature has a direct relationship to curing speed: the higher the temperature the faster the cure. Yet, excessive heat may cause the substrate to distort, which can result in registration difficulties or substrate damage. Heat may also cause UV cure system components to fail. Therefore, understanding temperature is critical to ensuring proper cure and to safeguarding the substrate and system from potential failure.
The NON-CONTACT INFRARED THERMOMETER
is a non-contact IR thermometer with laser pointer to improve aim. This unit measures up to 600F and is F/C switchable. Features a large LCD display with backlighting, narrow field of view and audible and visible overrange indicators. Fixed emissivity (0.95) covers 90% of surface applications.
