USI Italia’s IR and UV-A lamp heating system uses the principle of radiation, i.e., a transfer of heat by means of electromagnetic waves that allows surfaces to be heated directly without passing through the air.
Infrared lamps for body shop applications can be grouped into two categories, depending on the wavelengths emitted: “shortwave” and “mediumwave”.
The dryers supplied by USI Italia with the latest generation of short-wave infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV-A) or combined technologies meet the highest quality and safety standards and are the ideal solution for fast drying and excellent polymerisation on limited surfaces, for smart or spot repairs.
Perfectly suited to our PROF-X, Synchro and Express Bay preparation areas, the infrared/UV-A lamps offered by USI Italia are easy to operate and available in 3 designs:
1. MOBILE COLUMN with platform carts
2. SUSPENDED on traverse tracks
3. SUSPENDED SEMI-ARCH on tracks
Infrared processing systems are designed with a clear objective: to help you deliver a faster, better and more profitable customer service.
Here are some of the benefits that can be achieved with our equipment:
Energy efficiency: IR lamps are highly eco-efficient: they are only used where and when needed to minimise energy consumption and waste.
The special pyrometers for temperature reading on the stand manage the switching on and off of the IR lamps.
Total process control: In order to facilitate the operator, all USI Italia solutions are designed to be immediately understandable and easy to use.
The pre-set programs can be easily modified and adapted to your machining operations.
In the configurations with the computerised touch screen control unit it is also possible to display the actual energy consumption and its cost in your own currency in real time and at the end of the cycle.
Radiation quality: Special golden reflectors ensure complete reflection of IR rays and even heat distribution.
The special red filter of the IR lamps reduces the emission of UV rays.
Sonars allow drying at the correct distance and prevent the substrates from overheating.
Space-saving solutions: when installed on overhead suspended aluminium rails, IRs save valuable space between vehicles during use and parking; so no power cables on the floor disturb the work process.
Environmentally friendly: the rails and most of the structures are made of aluminium, a light metal that is completely recyclable and reusable.
Everything that can enhance the range of product used in body shops and in the industrial sector with high-performance solutions that integrate perfectly with USI Italia systems.
