Heraeus Noblelight GmbH, a company within the worldwide precious metals- and technology organisation Heraeus, will be represented at SOLARIA 2005 in Cologne by its Original Hanau SunCare Division. Original Hanau SunCare is the specialist for tanning lamps and UV technology for sunbeds. At SOLARIA, Original Hanau SunCare is launching the innovative VARIUS system, a system which offers high pressure output in a compact and flexible package.

High Pressure in its Most Innovative Form


The VARIUS system is the latest stroke of genius from Original Hanau SunCare. The VARIUS system is a complete high pressure tanning unit. Thanks to its very small space requirement and simple fitting, the system can be flexibly integrated into virtually every sunbed concept. Thus innovative designs and tanning concepts can be realised. VARIUS offers manufacturers great flexibility and thus significantly reduced development costs. Original Hanau SunCare is showing the system and its first successful example of its incorporation into tanning equipment at the SOLARIA exhibition in Cologne.

“We have developed the revolutionary UV light source VARIUS from our position as technology leader in the tanning sector,” says Markus Berghöfer, General Manager of Original Hanau SunCare, “We work as a development partner with sunbed manufacturers and, with VARIUS, we have created a flexible and efficient high pressure solution.”

VARIUS, the complete high pressure tanning unit from Original Hanau SunCare, consists of five modules:

 A reflector made of special glass with an optimised interference coating
 A 250 Watt high pressure tanning lamp
 A filter plate
 A plug-in electrical connection
 A fixing strap

All components are precisely matched to each other. The sunbed manufacturer receives one compact unit and needn’t worry about all the individual parts being compatible.

Visions Become Reality In An Instant

VARIUS permits completely new concepts in sunbed design. Thanks to its compact construction and its small space requirement it is a very flexible piece of equipment. Specific foot-, leg-, hand-, face-, décolletage-, and shoulder-tanners can be produced. The new system can be integrated within tube fields. For example, a VARIUS unit can replace two to three tanning tubes in width and in the bottom section of the sunbed, several modules can be built in as a foot tanner. VARIUS is an effective alternative to spaghetti tubes as a face tanner.

The integration into sunbeds can be carried out at little cost. There is no longer any need for the extensive construction previously required for high pressure solutions in terms of a lot of individual components such as filter frame holders, reflectors, high pressure lamps etc. VARIUS is a self-contained complete system. Fixing is by means of a single clamp and only two drill holes are necessary. Electrical connection for the system is via a top quality plug connection. Suitable ignition and power supply units can be optionally supplied by Original Hanau SunCare.

Effective tanning surface and intensity are controlled by the number of systems and their spacing from the irradiated surface. A simple cooling of the whole system is sufficient. As a result, VARIUS is a Plug-and-Play system.

The high pressure lamp is offered as a replacement part via our dealers. Lamp change-over can be carried out without the need for special tools in much the same way as the change-over of all components.

Heraeus Noblelight GmbH, with its headquarters in Hanau and with subsidiaries in the USA, Great Britain and China, is one of the technology- and market-leaders in the production of specialist light sources. In 2004, Heraeus Noblelight had an annual turnover of 76 Million € and employed 626 people worldwide. The organisation develops, manufactures and markets infrared and ultraviolet emitters for applications in manufacture, industrial process technology, environmental protection, medicine and cosmetics, research and analytical measurement technology.

Heraeus, the global precious metals and technology group, is a market and technology leader in the business areas of precious metals, dental health, sensors, quartz glass, and specialty lighting sources. In 2004, the company generated revenues of € 8.3 billion with more than 9,800 employees worldwide in over 100 subsidiaries and associated companies. Founded in 1851, the company’s broad product portfolio has made Heraeus relatively independent of developments in individual industrial sectors. Heraeus proactively targets and fosters the high innovation and development potential within the company. Heraeus uses customer-oriented product developments and specific acquisitions to expand its leading position in diverse industrial sectors.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
