September 14, 2011 — Infrared materials and systems supplier IRphotonics added a high-resolution FLIR thermal imaging camera to its application engineering lab. The camera will be used to analyze heat distribution during iCure use.
IRphotonics engineers hope to optimize energy, wavelength and irradiance for particular processes, developing customized curing profiles with better control and manufacturing productivity, said Ruben Burga, VP of sales for IRphotonics.
The iCure AS200 inline fiber optic spot cure system uses infrared radiation to heat-cure thermal epoxies, bond plastic and glass components such as lenses, affix miniature components, assemble and bond semiconductor components, microsolder, and perform other precise welding operations. The system suits use with temperature-sensitive substrates and complex devices.
IRphotonics will be demonstrating the iCure AS200 at booth 765 at the MD&M Midwest in Chicago, September 20-23, 2011.
IRphotonics designs and manufactures infrared fibers and systems for the transmission of infrared light, and for assembly operations requiring high intensity infrared heat. For more information, visit www.icure-irphotonics.com.
