One of the most recent products added to the GoKimco website is the Loctite EQ CL32 LED Spot 405nm. With new light intensities of up to 3 w/cm2, this system is three times greater than its predecessor and revolutionizes portable LED curing methods for all industries that need to achieve immediate operating strength on a variety of materials.
This lightweight LED light source is small enough to be used in crowded and hard-to-reach areas while minimizing operator fatigue, yet powerful enough to take care of all the curing needs your industry might require. Depending on your project and preferences, you can either power the system through a wall outlet if you wish to use it as a mount or you can take advantage of its 3-hour battery life if you wish to use it as a handheld unit.
Besides being small and powerful, the Loctite EQ CL32 also boasts a number of other benefits. For starters, its instant on/off makes the system easy and quick to use. Its long focus length allows the user to direct precisely into small joints or crowded areas with fast curing speeds. It also consumes little power and releases no IR emissions, which reduces the chance for thermal damage and warp.
How does this light work? Click here for a visual explanation on how to use the LED spot system, but for now, we’ll go over the basics. For common applications, just apply a light cure instant adhesive to the parts that you wish to be mated, potted or sealed. GoKimco also offers a number of light cure adhesives, all of which are formulated for rapid light cure.
You can still adjust parts once the adhesive is applied without breaking the initial bond since the adhesive will not become activated until the light source is used. This allows you to ensure that your parts are in the desired place before using the using the Loctite EQ CL32 to adhere them together. Then use the instant on button and either the 365nm or 405nm LED heads to complete the curing process.
It’s that simple! The Loctite EQ CL32 is perfect for prototyping, scale up, or full production environments so you won’t want to miss out on this newly featured product.
