UV lamps are needed in many applications, such as graphic arts, label printing, inkjet printing or CD manufacturing. Yet, the replacement bulb itself is an often overlooked but essential part of the production process.

At DRUPA, Hall 3 Stand C35, Heraeus will be exhibiting their range of UV lamps. Furthermore visitors will have the opportunity to ask their technical experts about ways to use lamps to improve their own UV curing process.
“For Heraeus Amba Ltd, a UV curing lamp is not just a lamp, it is an important part of our customers’ productivity and success”, says Carolyn Harvey from Heraeus Amba in Banbury, Great Britain.
Most standard UV lamps use mercury to produce UV light at a wavelength of 360nm, which will cure most inks and coatings. Lamps can be optimised with the addition of rare earth elements, or “metal halides” which alter the UV wavelength to suit specific inks or applications. Amba lamps can be matched to meet customer specifications in terms of product and process to dry inks and lacquers as quickly as possible, while ensuring there is no damage to the material.
UV technical experts from Heraeus Amba will be on stand 3C35 at Drupa this year to answer UV curing queries, and to advise on the best way to use and maintain UV lamps to ensure optimum performance. Amba UV lamps are tested twice before they leave the factory and can be supplied to suit all types of equipment used in label printing, flexo and web offset printing, screen printing, coating and varnishing, inkjet and digital printing.
As Europe’s foremost UV curing lamp manufacturer Heraeus Amba has been supplying replacements and making original lamps for equipment manufacturers for 20 years.
Heraeus Amba Ltd is the world’s foremost specialist manufacturer of ultraviolet (UV) curing lamps and metal halide lamps for use in industrial applications, and is a leader in UV curing technology. Established in 1982, Amba Lamps became part of the Heraeus Group of companies in 1999 and operates from a state of the art purpose-built manufacturing plant in Banbury, UK from where products are distributed to every continent via a network of subsidiaries and distributors.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
