Abstract
Based on Agiltron''s extensive experience in design and fabrication of UV LED cure systems that are currently employed in commercial fiber optics applications, we propose to produce a state-of-the-art UV LED-based cure system for manufacturing impregnated fiberglass galvanic barrier for the new generation airplanes. The system incorporates a reconfigurable high power UV LED array emitting highly collimated beams with constant power along with a computer controlled linear scanning stage. Coupling with a specially formulated UV epoxy, the proposed production system offers the attractive attributes of fast curing, unique very long working distance and large covering area capability, high repeatability with built-in power monitoring and controlling, excellent reliability and longevity, low power consumption, light-weight, low maintenance, easy to operate, low cost, and great reconfigurability and stability. A fully functional system will be built and delivered in the Phase II program.
