UV Curing Lamps For IST Equipment
When one thinks of sophisticated German-engineered UV curing systems, look no further than IST. As a lamp manufacturer we are impressed with their lamp designs. Many companies do not consider lamp performance opting for low voltage-high current power supplies. They do this to save on power supply cost. IST is different. With the exception of one or two CD printing lamps, all their designs maximize lamp life. Unless you are in the lamp business, you will not know the acoustical resonance issues with lamps of arcs 38 to 44-inches. To their credit, ISTís lamp designs almost eliminate this problem. Power supplies are more expensive but from a durability standpoint, they leave most other companies far behind. We have no financial interest in IST but we do know a good UV system when we see one.
TCS Technologies manufactures lamps compatible with many IST designs. We offer an American made alternative to the OEM product. IST makes an excellent lamp. About the only knock we can say is the ceramic end-cap is heavy and one must be careful installing. We feel you can attain the same results yet save money using our IST-style UV replacement lamps. Replacement lamps include:
