Luminus brings UV to a popular 3.9mm2 projection technology platform
with the new PT-39-UV LED chip

San Francisco, CA ― Luminus Devices, Inc., announced today that engineering samples of a new UV Big Chip LED in Luminus’ popular PT-39 form factor will be introduced at Photonics West 2013. Visitors will be able to see it in action driving
a 3D printing system.

The new PT-39-UV LED contains a single 3.9 mm2 die that maximizes power density by emitting directly into air. They are available in a NIST-traceable power range output of 3.2 W in either 385 nm or 405 nm wavelengths, making them ideal for UV life science, machine-vision and curing applications. The PT-39-UV LED provides all of the traditional advantages of Luminus’ Big Chip LED technology including industry-leading power density, superior thermal management,and simpler support system architecture. The PT-39-UV enables new UV applications that had been impractical for the mercury UV lamp due to short service life and durability issues. This new LED solution delivers long lifetimes, robust construction, superior energy-efficiency, plus zero toxic emission and disposal issues.

The leader in Big Chip LEDs™ will showcase the PT-39-UV LED’s performance by demonstrating a remarkable 3D printer, the EnvisionTEC Perfactory® Micro desktop rapid prototyping system.

“Luminus’ high-power UV-LED platform will accelerate the 3D printing revolution by enabling lower-cost and higher-performance systems that push this exciting technology into new manufacturing markets,” said Mike Lim, Director of Global Industrial and New Business.

Luminus will also be showing the latest advances in other UV chips plus white, RGB and RGBW LED technology during SPIE’s annual exhibition. Visitors will get a chance to see demonstrations of the latest LED technology in a variety of unique applications. Luminus will be exhibiting in booth #4116, North Hall D, at the Moscone Center from February 5th through February 7th.
