UV Exposure Units, UVA tubes peaking at 365nm

Low Cost UV Units

The LV202-E and LV204 steel cased LV models are the most cost effective UV units offered. The tubes are in the base which means the artwork has to be registered on the UV sensitive area and then placed face down onto the exposure area. Coloured black, each unit has a hinged lid containing a pressure pad which, when the lid is held closed by the two retaining clips, acts to force the artwork and sensitive material firmly together on the UV illuminated area.

Note: These UV units are designed to expose rigid materials.
To expose UV sensitive flexible material we recommend the Pluvex or vacuum UV units.

LV202-E

A six-minute mechanical timer is fitted which also acts as the mains switch. When the control knob is rotated to the required time the power is turned on and the exposure commences. The timer clicks off as soon as the exposure is completed.

LV204

The LV204 controls consist of a 0 – 500 second digital timer that is set with touch keys. The set time counts down during exposure and then flashes to indicate the exposure is complete.

PLUVEX 1410 Exposure Unit

PLUVEX 1410 Exposure UnitPLUVEX 1410 Exposure Unit

The Pluvex 1410 UV is a high quality pressure contact UV exposure unit featuring UV tubes in the lid to aid artwork registration. To perform an exposure, the artwork and UV sensitive material being exposed are placed on the precision exposure foam pressure pad (fig1). The separate hinged frame containing 4mm glass is then lowered onto this foam pad. It hinges from the rear of the unit and induces a progressive contact line across the face of the foam pad aiding the expulsion of air between the artwork and UV sensitive material (fig 2). The frame is secured with the two front mounting catches to achieve the necessary pressure for the required artwork contact. When the frame is secured the final position and registration of the artwork is checked (fig 3) before lowering the exposure head and commencing the exposure (fig 4). Exposure is controlled by a 0-500 second digital timer that is set via touch keys. The set time counts down during exposure and flashes to indicate the exposure is complete. The tubes in the exposure head are screened with a special membrane which protects the operative from the potential hazards of live electrical parts. The foam exposure pad sits in a tray and can be easily removed for cleaning or quick installation of exposure trays for non-contact curing. The Pluvex is supplied with an IEC socket and moulded 13 amp socket

Vacuum UV Units

Vaccum Unit AY321

For the ultimate in reproduction definition, a vacuum unit has to be the choice. Unlike the pressure pad units the AY series use a vacuum to ensure the artwork and material to be exposed are held in perfect contact. When fine tracks are required on a PCB or detailed definition on a graphic reproduction, an AY vacuum unit should be chosen. All the AY units now feature the latest rubber blanket and glass vacuum system for the ultimate exposure resolution. A 0-500 seconds is fitted to give the operator greater flexibility the vacuum pump activation and bleed is controlled by separate switches independent of the timer. A vacuum gauge is also fitted in the machine enabling the operator to check the level of vacuum before activating the UV tubes. All units come complete with an IEC socket and moulded 13 amp plug.

AZ Double Sided Vacuum UV Units

A double sided vacuum UV is an essential tool for the production of double sided PCBs. The ability to expose both sides of the board at once eliminates the immense problem of artwork registration for two separate exposures on a single sided unit.

The AZ units are similar to the AY range except that they have flexible mylar film in front of the tubes in the lid which closes onto a glass base beneath which is located another set of UV tubes.

The units feature a switch to enable the bottom set of tubes to be turned off for single sided exposures.

All three units are supplied complete with an IEC socket and moulded 13 amp plug.
