The New UV LED Curing Association

Market Leading Companies Combine Efforts to Support Rapid Growth in UV LED Applications

November 10, 2011 - Integration Technology Limited, Lumen Dynamics, and Phoseon Technology join together to form the UV LED Curing Association. The new association has been established to address a growing need within the market for current and potential researchers, suppliers, integrators and end users to gain a better understanding about UV LED technology and the significant benefits it brings to numerous applications.

The UV LED Curing Association is focused on providing greater insight into the various UV LED solutions currently in the marketplace, as well as into developing applications which are well suited to the technology. One of the goals of the association is to demonstrate how system developers around the world can effectively integrate UV LED technology into applications and, where possible, achieve better efficiencies while saving costs.

The founders of the association will work together to help define and establish UV LED-based guidelines for UV LED curing applications. This goal will become increasingly important as the adoption rate of UV LED technology continues to rise and the need for industry collaboration becomes critical. The association will also serve as a forum for fostering communication within the UV industry in order to facilitate the exchange of information and enable the entire industry to better address market needs. While complimentary to other existing and well established associations, the UV LED Curing Association focuses only on UV LED curing technology and its applications.

"UV LED curing technology has been steadily evolving in the market for almost a decade," said Adrian Lockwood, Managing Director of Integration Technology Limited. "Its application successes continue to generate increased interest; however, industry inconsistencies in language and measurement practices as well as a general misunderstanding of the technology continue to breed confusion and delay implementation. It is the hope of the UV LED Curing Association's founders that our collaboration will promote the successful and more rapid adoption of UV LED technology across many different markets."

"UV LED technology has witnessed a dramatic rise in interest and experienced a corresponding rapid adoption in a variety of markets over the past five years. We are quite pleased to be collaborating with other major industry influencers to provide a forum for sharing knowledge and developing common meaningful language and guidelines about UV LED technology," stated Allan Firhoj, President and CEO of Lumen Dynamics. "In our 15 years of experience in LED curing technology, the industry has realized significant breakthroughs that have proven LEDs as a viable alternative providing substantial benefits. The UV LED Curing Association will be instrumental in helping the market gain knowledge and insight about UV LED technology and its numerous commercial benefits."

"Phoseon Technology is a proud founder of the UV LED Curing Association," stated Bill Cortelyou, President and CEO of, Phoseon Technology. "Along with our fellow founders, Phoseon anticipates rapid growth and acceptance of UV LED curing technologies across a wide range of system manufacturers. The Association will bring together industry players to set guidelines and ensure compatibility across the industry."

The UV LED Curing Association will welcome new members and any significant contributions pertaining to UV LED Curing in early 2012. To learn more about the Association and its offerings, email info@uvledcuring.org or visit www.uvledcuring.org.
