PB047 - BlueWave QX4 Spot-Curing System Product Bulletin

BLUEWAVE® QX4™ PRODUCT BULLETIN
BlueWave® QX4™ LED Multi-Head Spot-Curing System
Control up to Four LED Heads Independently for Greater Curing Flexibility
The BlueWave® QX4™ high-intensity spot-curing system features all the benefits of LED-curing technology in a
smaller, more versatile unit. This system is comprised of a controller and up to four LED heads. LED heads are
available in 365, 385, and 405 nm and can be outfitted with 3-, 5-, or 8-mm diameter focusing lenses. LED heads
and focusing lenses can be used in any combination and can be controlled through the system’s variable mode, a
feature that allows each head to be individually programmed for intensity and cycle times. Individual exposure
times and intensity settings can be set in 1% increments for each LED head, giving users maximum curing
flexibility.
In addition to its curing flexibility, the BlueWave ® QX4™ also features an easy-to-use control interface that allows
flexibility in setup and use of the unit. The unit can be activated by foot pedal or by PLC interface, allowing it to be
easily incorporated into automated systems.

LED Light-Curing Technology
Dymax LED spot-curing systems generate curing energy using high-intensity LEDs instead of conventional metal-halide or
mercury-arc lamps. The relatively narrow frequency band of energy emitted by LEDs results in cooler substrate temperatures
compared to traditional UV-style lamp systems, making them ideal for curing thermally sensitive materials. Dymax LED-curing
systems offer many energy and cost-saving benefits, such as no warm-up period, lower energy consumption, no bulbs to change,
and more consistent frequency and intensity output for better process control.
Key Advantages of LED Light-Curing Technology

High electrical efficiency and instant on/off capability
for lower operational costs

Compact unit footprint that reduces workspace
requirements and cost of the system

Long service life that eliminates bulb replacement and
reduces maintenance costs

Consistent frequency and intensity output for better
process control

“Green” attributes that eliminate mercury and ozone
safety risks and handling costs

Narrow wavelength spectral emissions that minimize
substrate thermal rise
