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 QUICKTEMP W-O LASER
Infrared Thermometer safely and accurately measures infrared temperature within the cure chamber or substrate. Simply point at the desired target and press ON to obtain quick temperature reading in Centigrade or Fahrenheit. The total IR energy emitted into the sensor from the target area will be averaged within the field of view. With a D/T ration of 3:1, and when working 3" (7.6 cm) away from your target, the Quicktemp offers a 1" diameter working field. With a temperature range of 0-600F (-18 to 315C), it is accurate to +/-2% of full scale. Available with or without a laser.
