Heatsink Enclosure

PROJECT REQUIREMENTS

  • Fit within existing spacial parameters
  • Provide sufficient cooling for UV LED lamps
  • Design for mass production manufacturing processes

SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES

Designed to install inside a large format commercial UV inkjet printer, this project combined a miniature spectrophotometer with a high-power air-cooled UV LED lamp assembly. The assembly was designed to mount directly on the print head of the printer. The UV LED array acted as a curing unit, one of a pair used to cure the ink as an image was printed, in line with the print head. The integrated spectrophotometer module was used to measure 15 mm square patches, each a different color, to calibrate the printer and correct for color drift. Designed by a local Phoenix firm, proprietary software was used for automatic calibration, profiling and process control.
