LED curing: the energy-efficient solution
UV-LED cure: leading the way in fiber optic coatings
In the past 20 years, the global fiber optic cable market has grown by an average of 13% every year. So how do manufacturers around the world continue to deliver higher-performance end products based on more efficient manufacturing practices? One answer is UV-LED cure – a coating technology that helps minimize fiber optic cable environmental impacts by replacing the conventional, energy-hungry curing systems used for fiber optic cable coatings.
An industry Leader in UV LED cure
Our UV LED cure coating technology enables you to reduce the energy consumption of the coating manufacturing process by up to 80% compared to conventional microwave lens heat production systems. In fact, DSM’s LED-enabled fiber optic coatings reduce the carbon footprint of manufacturers and help create better workplace environments – with less noise and heat.
UV LED lamps have the potential to decrease energy consumption considerably compared to traditional microwave curing lamps.
They can reduce the production cost of optical fiber thanks to their long life, low noise, and easy maintenance.
Saving the environment
UV LED further benefit the environment because they don’t contain mercury (and thus don’t generate ozone).
