Downtime in the manufacturing process is one of the biggest causes of lost productivity. It delays the production process and ripples throughout the supply chain, ultimately affecting your ROI. Here are five ways to reduce unexpected downtime, eliminate delays, and keep your business running smoothly. Cross-train employees. One of the most important aspects of running […]
Miltec’s reputation for creating quality UV curing systems, parts, and components is a direct reflection of the innovations that come from our on-site Applications Testing Laboratory.
Ultraviolet light (UV) is a type of radiant energy that appears on the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum between visible light and x-rays. It has a shorter wavelength than visible light but higher energy (or frequency). Wavelength = distance between 2 peaks measured in nanometers. Frequency = number of waves over time, measured per second or Hz. […]
The pandemic, tensions overseas, supply chain issues…if those haven’t given you a reason to consider sourcing your products from companies right here in the United States, here are a few more.
N-Methylpyrrolidone, also known as N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone or NMP, is a colorless chemical solvent having a high boiling point, a high flash point, and a low vapor pressure. In many production processes, these characteristics are highly desired and made NMP a widely used solvent in the petrochemical and plastics industries, as well as in manufacturing. NMP is […]
Just like when you buy a car, choosing a vendor takes time and should require an analysis of critical performance criteria, driven by quality and reliability standards, as well as an understanding of material cost and availability.
Miltec UV’s innovative HPI UV System with leading edge Gloss Control technology enables manufacturers to achieve an extremely wide gloss range (as high as 50 gloss units) using a single UV coating. Low, medium and high gloss levels are attainable, with repeatable results, using this proven technology. The system stores recipes which allows for quick […]
When curing with UV, maintaining consistent and accurate results may be a bit challenging without the use of an instrument called a UV radiometer. Each UV process, whether microwave, arc, or LED, requires a specific output from the UV source to provide an adequate cure of the chemistry being used. The best way to verify […]
Manufacturing companies that invest in UV have many decisions to make along the way, whether they are changing a process from conventional drying to UV, or if they are simply upgrading an old UV finishing line with new and more powerful UV equipment. The decision of selecting UV equipment and which UV equipment manufacturer to […]
