NDT crack detectionUV-A inspection lamps are used for highlighting cracks in safety, critical aerospace and automotive components during dye penetrant and magnetic particle fluorescent processes.
PCB conformal coating validationUV-A lamps are used for quality control inspection of printed circuit boards.
Micro-contamination detectionUV blacklight lamps are used for highlighting particulate micro-contamination during cleanroom validation and surface cleanliness checks prior to applying coatings, inspection of LCD screens for quality control and inspection of medical grade textiles for detection of contamination.
Fluid leak detectionUV-A inspection lamps can be combined with fluorescent additives mixed with water, oils, fuels, coolants and refrigerants to reveal leaks on surfaces, pipework, joints and coils.
Cleanliness monitoringUV torches are used to reveal invisible contamination on surfaces, highlighting areas either missed or not cleaned properly. Ideal for audits, evaluating different cleaning products and training staff.
Textile manufacturingUV-A lamps are used for quality control of textile materials and products. Applications include identification of fiber yarn mixes within a cone, cloth or beam. This also includes contamination of raw materials such as cotton, or oil stains on carpets from weaving and tufting machines and particulates in medical non-woven fabrics.
UV scenic artwork and special effectsUV blacklights are used in combination with UV reactive materials for creating spectacular special effects, including single and dual image, 3D, invisible/UV revealing and Trompe-l’oeil. Applications include entertainment, promotion and advertising materials.
Paper manufacturingUV-A lamps for quality control of paper and paper products to reveal:
- Mixes & Contamination
- Invisible/UV Revealing Markings on Currency and Security Papers
