Miltec UV is an international leader in UV curing system technologies. Our team of more than 50 employees is based in the United States with our headquarters located in Stevensville, Maryland. Miltec UV’s proximity to Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Maryland, allows us access to major airports and shipping lanes, enabling our support for customers around the world. Miltec UV manufactures HPI (arc lamp) and MPI (microwave powered) curing systems as well as infrared (IR) systems. These can be utilized for a wide variety of applications, such as curing inks, coatings, and varnishes, in every market that employs UV curing technology, including optical fiber, flooring, metal decorating, semi-conductor, and automotive industries, among many others. UV technology and systems are recognized as environmentally friendly “green technology” because they eliminate the use of virtually all damaging volatile organic compounds (VOCs) typically emitted into the atmosphere during the curing process. Our staff of technical experts provides custom engineered UV curing systems, as well as consulting, training, technical support, and a fully staffed customer application laboratory. Additionally, Miltec UV offers spare and replacement parts for Miltec UV lamp systems and other OEM lamp systems. All of our high-performance UV systems are designed and manufactured in the United States in our state-of-the-art facility and are carefully crafted and tested to ensure superior performance. Our commitment to building strong customer relationships and developing innovative technologies, in addition to providing a superior offering in terms of quality and price, has led Miltec UV to become a first-choice supplier for UV customers around the world.
Miltec UV was founded in 1989 by Joseph and Marilyn Blandford. We recently celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2019. Miltec UV began as a manufacturers’ rep for UV curing systems, distributor of UV curing system parts, and manufacturer of anti-fogging coated lenses for military night vision goggles.
In 2003, Miltec UV opened a state-of-the-art Bulb division for manufacturing a variety of UV bulbs. Shortly after that, we began manufacturing various other consumable parts including patented screens and reflectors for UV systems.
Following the success of parts sales, Miltec UV expanded the business into manufacturing UV curing systems in 2005. Our HPI UV system was introduced to the manufacturing industry and has been a growing and popular UV system since. Today, it is widely recognized for its outstanding curing performance and industrial reliability.
In 2010, Miltec UV commercialized the MPI, our first microwave powered UV lamp system.
In 2011, with the rapidly increasing interest in the use of lithium-ion batteries for vehicles, Miltec UV undertook a substantial effort aimed at using UV curing as a new technology for the manufacturing of electrode binders and separator coatings. After initial research and development work, Miltec UV formed a Research and Development company, Miltec UV International, LLC, to build upon its R&D effort. Miltec UV received a cost-share Federal grant from the Department of Energy for $4.5 million dollars, in which Miltec UV shared 20% of the cost. Since then, Miltec UV has received additional grants, and our R&D efforts continue to make great progress in this market.
Miltec UV International then started the commercialized phase of the lithium-ion battery project by teaming up and testing with various major automotive companies and battery manufacturers. As testing progresses, the company will continue to evolve and make an impact on lithium-ion battery technology. We currently have several patents that cover many countries worldwide.
In 2017, Miltec UV introduced our second microwave powered UV system, the Xtrema ECO. Designed specifically for the optical fiber market, it delivers more UV light to the optical fiber coating compared to previous UV system technologies, while consuming less energy. This innovative and patented UV lamp system has been the leading system installed in the optical fiber industry since 2017.
Today Miltec UV is a leading manufacturer of high-performance UV curing systems in the UV industry, offering all three technologies currently used in the marketplace: electrode (arc), electrodeless (microwave powered), and LED systems. Miltec UV stands out as one of the only manufactures of all three UV technologies. Miltec UV’s consumable parts are shipped to UV customers around the world. Thanks to our dedicated customers, Miltec UV is a first-choice supplier based on superior quality and price.
