Multifaceted UV-technology at Bondexpo 2016
IST METZ offers a wide range of UV solutions for bonding glass, plastics and metal and for curing composites. The company’s product portfolio includes both standard UV systems and LED units for curing cationic, radical and dual-cure adhesives. Whether used for selected spots or large surfaces, these systems can be used to implement a variety of applications. On one side, handheld units are used where flexibility and mobility are required. On the other side, IST METZ offers stationary UV units for industrial series production.
The wave length and intensity of the UV light used in the systems is designed to suit the specialist demands of adhesives. What is more, the UV technology has several key benefits compared to conventional procedures: it hardens adhesives in a matter of seconds, allowing processing of the material to continue immediately, and also offers high levels of rigidity and resistance.
Amongst the products which IST METZ is presenting there are also current developments as MZero LED. The air-cooled system is used e.g. for the curing of adhesives, sealings and coatings or in the fields of coding and marking in the printing industry. The compact LED UV unit is, once switched on, ready straight away. It also transmits very little warmth to the substrate and has an extremely long service life.
In addition to that IST METZ is representing the innovative HANDcure for the first time. This is a mobile and wireless UV LED handset, which has been developed by IST METZ in Nürtingen and which was created in cooperation with the also local Metabo Werke. The distribution of HANDcure exclusively will be ensured by IST METZ, any spare parts will be available worldwide.
