Phoseon Patented Fiber Optic Curing Technologies Uses UV LED Light Sources to cure Protective Glass Fiber Coatings
Hillsboro, Ore., Jan. 24, 2019 – Phoseon Technology today announced that it has been granted US Patent No. 10,175,103 - “Method and System for Monitoring Ultraviolet Light for a Fiber Cure System.”
The granting of this patent marks an important milestone of 300 patents awarded and applied for worldwide - a milestone confirming the company’s leadership in UV LED curing technology. Phoseon’s patents are organized in 54 patent families, covering critical design, process, and other photonic technologies across all the major markets worldwide.
Phoseon’s patented UV LED fiber curing system ensures high speed curing of optical fiber to deliver uniform and concentrated light for a fast cure, increased output and simplified process control.
“Phoseon has built a strong portfolio of patents covering our fiber curing technology. This recent grant brings us to a total of 300 patents granted or applied for – I’m proud of the Phoseon team for achieving this” said Bill Cortelyou, President and CEO of Phoseon Technology.
Phoseon’s Fiber Curing System consists of a high intensity UV LED light source specifically matched to Phoseon’s patented Fiber Reflector Unit (FRU) to direct the UV energy uniformly around the circumference of the fiber. LED technology greatly increases cure-speed, reduces energy consumption and increases factory utilization with high lamp reliability.
Phoseon invests in patented technology granting the company the exclusive right to produce and sell its technology so Phoseon customers can operate without the fear of supply chain interruption. In addition to Fiber-Cure, Phoseon is leading the conversion to LED in other key markets such as Flexographic printing and UV Inkjet printing.
