DMD / DLP® Illuminator LUMIDL™

Highest output and uniformity for the most challenging DMD applications.

The industry's performance benchmark for DMD/DLP® UV-LED Illuminators

Next-generation light sources, like the high-performance LumiDL™ UV-LED illuminator, dramatically increase the throughput of direct imaging tools for industrial applications like maskless lithography or Computer-to-Screen (CtS) and 3D printing. Now, you can overcome the drawback of relatively low process speeds and leverage the flexibility benefits and cost-saving potential of DMD/DLP® projection in high-volume manufacturing environments.

System highlights:

System overview

The LumiDL™ UV-LED DMD illuminator is available in narrow- and broadband setups, surpassing the radiation power of both conventional discharge lamps and laser diodes. At the same time, the LumiDL™ DMD illuminator is way more economical from a total cost perspective through the extended service life of its LED emitters and easy system maintenance. Designed as a modular device, the illuminator features a field-replaceable high-power UV-LED unit (FRU), that can be detached from the optics assembly and serviced by the end customer.

LumiDL™ UV-LED DMD illuminators come with a high-performance 18-channel LED driver. The channels connect all emitters of the UV-LED light engine individually, putting you in full control to perform precise exposures. You may use the integrated Ethernet (telnet, Modbus) or serial USB interface for system setup and operation. Also, an external trigger input is available for instantaneous activation of the DMD illuminator with predefined settings.  

System output

Texas Instruments’s large format DLP®7000, DLP®9000, and DLP®9500 chipsets perfectly match the optical output of LumiDL™ UV-LED DMD illuminators. Its highly uniform radiant flux is confined to the 12° acceptance half-angle and the active area of the DLP. Some overfill helps to relax positional tolerances of the entire setup along the optical axis. You may customize the spectral output by choosing any combination of emitters around the available central wavelengths (CWL) 365, 385, 395, 405, and 436 nm.
