ICAD® Technology - Inline Continuous Automated Dynamic UV Monitoring
The proprietary ICAD® Technology offers multiple benefits and cost savings in industries like converting, wood lacquering lines, narrow web presses and optical fiber production whom are know for using a lot of UV or UV LED in generating their products.
With ICAD® They no longer need to worry about the changes from the UV or UV LED source, as they will have continuously monitoring of the full width output during production – fully automated.
- More consistent quality of product
- Reduced rejects and rework
- Reduce energy consumption
- More production time
- Less spare parts
- Documented process parameters for production batch
- Longer lifetime of UV and UV LED system
- Available for nearly any UV system
ICAD® technology is a huge step for improving UV production processes. It enables users to run the production more continuous and to be aware of changes of UV output in due time, before they generate production problems.
ICAD® Technology requires integration into the process zone, and we are happy to evaluate and consult the opportunity for using ICAD® in your application.
ICAD® Technology - What is it?
ICAD® enables roll2roll applications to monitor their UV output, which has not been possible before. Traveling in the zone between the UV or UV LED source and the product to be cured, ICAD® monitors any changes in set intervals.
This can be done for both Hg-based sources as well as UV LED sources. The benefits are many and the first 6-8 color narrow web presses are now in the field with ICAD® Technology.
Floor and Furniture lacquering lines
Several high-profile users of UV in the wood and furniture industry benefit from the inline control of the ICAD® Technology.
Major benefits are “15-45min more production time per day as well as a reduced reject and rework rate. Other benefits are longer lifetime of LED and Mercury lamps, less energy consumption, better gloss control and the possibility to document towards final customer that UV parameters have been met.
