IRphotonics Lab Now Offers Thermal Imaging to Optimize Curing Profile of Thermal Adhesives

iCure Spot Curing System Improves Manufacturing Productivity

Hamden, CT, September 22, 2011 --( IRphotonics, a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of Infrared-based materials and systems is pleased to announce the acquisition of a high resolution FLIR thermal imaging camera to expand the capabilities of its application engineering lab.

The acquisition of a thermal imaging camera will help IRphotonics’ Application Engineering Lab engineers analyze the distribution of heat in the parts that are exposed to the iCure to optimize energy, wavelength and irradiance to meet particular process needs or improve clients’ manufacturing productivity.

"This added capability will play an important role in the development of customized curing profiles for our clients as it shows exactly how heat is distributed in the part, which in turn leads to better control and optimization of the curing process," commented Ruben Burga, VP Sales for IRphotonics.

iCure AS200 Spot Curing System
The iCure AS200 is an award-winning inline fiber optic system that provides heat by Infrared radiation in a portable unit, delivering pinpoint and accurate control for temperature sensitive substrates and complex devices. Using infrared light to generate heat, the iCure thermal spot curing system combines the advantages of thermal curing with the practicality of spot curing.

Applications include:

Spot curing of thermal epoxies
Bonding and fixing of plastic and glass components
Fixing of lenses
Temporary fixing of miniature components
Precision assembly and bonding of semiconductor components
Focused energy for micro soldering
Localized heat welding of thermoplastics

IRphotonics at the MD&M Midwest in Chicago, September 20-23, 2011.

IRphotonics will be demonstrating the power and flexibility of the iCure AS200 at their booth –765. Please contact sales at to discuss your application with the team.
