Redefining peak performance.

While most of the UV curing industry focuses only on the need for UV energy, we believe that true UV performance depends on both UV energy and peak Irradiance, which is the concentration and intensity of the light. As peak irradiance increases, the UV energy needed to cure an ink or coating reduces. This basic concept allows our high-performance UV curing systems to produce very high peak irradiance UV systems, thus reducing the high UV energy consumption. The net result is a more efficient curing process typically utilizing fewer lamps, fewer spare parts, and ultimately, lowering operating costs.

Peak Irradiance

The intensity of UV output focused on the substrate. Miltec’s technology achieves up to 2 times higher peak irradiance than typical technology.

Raising the bar.

In our fully-equipped laboratory, our researchers, chemists, and engineers develop breakthrough technologies that yield unparalleled output, performance, and reliability. A few of our patented technologies include:

  • An advanced HPI reflector that uses advanced geometry to deliver maximum optical efficiency and easy removal and installation of reflector liners.
  • Quick-release reflectors for microwave-powered UV systems.
  • Lithium-Ion battery electrode binder chemistry that can be cured under high-powered UV light and will change the electric vehicle landscape by eliminating the need for NMP, an increasingly regulated solvent.

FX-2 Back Reflector
The FX-2 Back Reflector features an exclusive two-piece design that allows it to be easily removed for cleaning and inspection.

Putting people first.

Innovation is only as groundbreaking as it is usable. From intuitive touchscreen controls to reflectors that can be quickly inspected and removed with minimal production downtime, part of what makes our technology unique is that it is developed with production operators in mind.

    Understanding Ultraviolet Light & UV Curing

    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. […]
