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.

Heraeus Noblelight GmbH with its headquarters in Hanau and with subsidiaries in the USA, Great Britain, France, China, Australia and Puerto Rico, is one of the technology- and market-leaders in the production of specialist light sources. In 2006, Heraeus Noblelight had an annual turnover of 88 Million € and employed 651 people worldwide. The organisation develops, manufactures and markets infrared and ultraviolet emitters for applications in industrial manufacture, environmental protection, medicine and cosmetics, research, development and analytical laboratories.

Heraeus, the precious metals and technology group headquartered in Hanau, Germany, is a global, private company in the business segments of precious metals, sensors, dental and medical products, quartz glass and specialty lighting sources. With revenues of more than EUR 10 billion and more than 11,000 employees in over 100 companies, Heraeus has stood out for more than 155 years as one of the world’s leading companies involved in precious metals and materials technology.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
