Recent advances in UV process control – using ICAD-technology

Thomas Efsen, Efsen Engineering

Abstract:Running a measure under a UV or UV LED system only detects the value of that exact spot and does not detect variances in the length of the lamp (the uniformity). This requires multiple and time-consuming measures. This paper evaluates the degree and stability of process control obtained by applying Inline Continuous Automated Dynamic technology (ICAD-technology) to wide UV systems being UV LED arrays, multiple microwave systems or wide arc-lamps systems.
