HPE focuses much attention on the design and manufacturing of systems that reduce energy consumption in polymerization processes. Using LEDs as source of UV radiation rather than conventional arc lamps provides multiple economic and environmental benefits due to a reduced electricity consumption.
Using LED lamps as source of UV radiation reduces the energy consumption by 50% to achieve the same result as with conventional arc lamps.
The very rapid ON/OFF cycle of HPE LED lamps leads to an additional energy saving as devices in standby mode consume no power at all.
Significantly reduced environmental impact during the drying phase due to the absence of UV-B, UV-C and ozone emissions as well as the elimination of mercury.
The longer life of the LED in terms of hours compared to traditional lamps translates into a lower commitment of raw materials during the construction phas.
HPE designs and develops UV LED curing systems to polymerize and to dry UV-based products such as inks, varnishes, resins and adhesives in industrial processes when it is required to achieve high levels of productivity. The constant advancement in LED lighting technologies in particular COB (Chip On Board) technology, allows to achieve a highly selective and powerful emission of monochromatic radiation.
