We recently published a blog outlining radiometer configuration and usage. Give it a read if you missed it! Since you’re now an expert at operating your radiometer, this blog will look at the steps needed to optimize your UV or LED oven.
This process is practically as simple as increasing and decreasing the UV or LED cure system’s conveyor speed to affect the dose. You must also consider increasing and decreasing the distance between the cure system’s lights and the radiometer to achieve at least the minimum irradiance required per the coating, adhesive or GELS technical data sheet.
One further note regarding LED cure systems is to ensure you’re using a light source that not only has the correct power (Watts), but also emits UV energy in the correct wavelength.
