IRphotonics (Hamden, CT) offers the Visible Optical Filter for the iCure® AS200 Thermal Spot Curing System to enable heating of heat-sensitive plastics used in disposable medical devices. The optical filter eliminates all visible wavelengths except for a mild red pointer glow to provide infrared energy above 800 nm. When coupled with the precision and power of the iCure, it accelerates the curing of two-part glues without affecting heat-sensitive thermoplastics. The iCure provides highly focused light energy through a proprietary mid IR fiber optic light guide that leverages the broad spectrum of energy available from 300-3600 nm. UV-sensitive substrates are also protected through the used of an optical UV cut-off optical filter that allows only the wavelengths greater than 400 nm to be transmitted through the iCure light guide and filters out any wavelengths in the harmful UV region.
