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.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
